This week’s message from our Chairman, Iain Coates…

4th November 2017

Firstly may I on behalf of the club, congratulate Nathan Fowles, who started his rugby career here at Rochdale, on his selection to the Scotland training squad ahead of the Autumn Internationals.  Nathan went from Sale Sharks initially on a three month loan to Edinburgh before signing full time ahead of the 2015-16 season, his club debut came off the bench against Cardiff followed by his full debut against Munster.

Today is our first game of winter the clocks having gone back last Saturday and you have to feel for our opposition who have had to travel from Whitehaven, sometimes I have to think the powers that be could be more sympathetic when planning fixtures.

They like ourselves have had a tough start to the season however I hope their President Colin Murdock, Chairman Mike Morgan, Officials, Players and Spectators enjoy the off field hospitality and hopefully this does not extend to the field of play.

Also at home today are our 2nds who entertain Preston Grasshoppers and our 3rds playing Clitheroe whilst our 4ths travel to Old Bedians. Good Luck to them all.

Today’s Match Sponsors are Moffat and Riley Heating Services.  Great supporters of ours as they have also sponsored this year’s Colts strip.  Your support is really appreciated and I am sure Andy, Alistair and all their guests will make full use of the refreshments on offer.

We also welcome our Match Officials and thank the Manchester and District Referees Society for supplying Philip Bygrave (1st Team) Robert Edwards (2nd Team) and Aaron Goodlad (3rd Team) and as always I demand maximum respect for these guys from everybody connected to our club.

Socially tonight after the Match we are holding a Race Night to raise funds for our trip to the Isle of Man please stay on and support of you can.

Next Friday 10th November we hold the Minis and Juniors Stars in your Eyes, one act per age group up to colts, 7.30pm start.

Next Saturday 11th November Senior Stars in your Eyes format can be found on the Club Website and if you can understand it your better than me, 7.30pm start.

Just confirmed New Year’s Eve Soul and Motown Night, posters are around the club and details will be posted on the website as will the clubs opening hours during the Christmas and New Year period.

Enjoy the game.

Regards,

Iain R Coates

Chairman Rochdale RUFC
