This week’s message from our Chairman Iain Coates…

16/12/17

Good afternoon,

Firstly, may I start with an apology to all our members and supporters who fought their way to Warrington last Saturday.  Both teams were changed and ready to go, both sets of coaching staff ready to go, unfortunately the referee, who incidentally was an exchange from Gloucester was almost ready to go, until his assessor started quizzing him on whether he could see all lines perfectly clearly and slowly but surely talked him out of letting the match go ahead and that was that!!.. Changing times are well and truly upon us.

That’s enough Bah Humbug!!

Welcome to all of you attending the ’Chairman’s Christmas Lunch’ where myself and Minis and Juniors Chairman Dan O’Connell are your hosts in a ground breaking joint sponsorship.  I’m sure Dan’s wife Jane will be with us however Mrs Coates remains on the beach refusing to come home.

Also joining us today are Burnage RUFC, their President Alan Lynn, Chairman Kevin Barnwell, Committee Members, Players and Supporters.  If we can replicate the hospitality shown to us earlier in the season then we are in for a good Pre-Match, hopefully during the match the hospitality ends, and our boys send us all off for the Christmas break smiling.

Our 2nd Team host our old friends from Cumbria (only joking lads) Value of Lune and good luck to Jed and the Boys.

Over Christmas and New Year many people have strived to keep the tills ringing with this afternoons lunch, Adults Christmas Party tonight, Kids Christmas Party, Drinks Party Christmas Eve, New Years Eve Soul and Motown extravaganza and New Year’s Day Family Day with tombola prizes needed and entertainment from The Spodden Valley Stompers.  So please support whenever you can.

Our match officials today are Damian Hamilton and Donald Lewis who hopefully will not need to constantly whistle a Christmas Carol but if they do I insist we all treat them with Seasons Goodwill.

All that’s left for me to do is wish everybody connected with this great club a Very Merry Christmas and a Happy and Prosperous New Year.

Enjoy today.

Iain R Coates

Chairman Rochdale RUFC

Christmas And New Year Message From The President 2017

As the year comes to a close, we reflect on what a year it has been.

Our whole club goes from strength to strength, every year we get a little bit better at most things we do. Of course this cannot be done without the myriad of volunteers who give their time and effort to forward our cause. To our staff, who, playing and otherwise strive to be at the top of their game. To our sponsors and those who raise funds for our club, we are very grateful for your support.

I wish to sincerely thank all those who run the services and administrations of our club, in all sections, for their part in our success. To our volunteers who see their efforts being worthwhile. To our players, young and older.

Lets do it again next year.

I wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy, Healthy and Prosperous New Year.

Steve Helliwell

President Rochdale RUFC
