Bishopton RFC - "rugby for all ages"

Message from the President

With our glorious summer now coming to a close, we are looking ahead to the start of our new season.  Indeed we have a lot to look forward to at Bishopton Rugby. Our Micro section continues to grow and grow, so much we might have to start a waiting list this season. With all the training the P4’s to P7’s and secondary school boys have been doing over summer, I am sure they are going to see the benefit this coming season in their matches. Thanks to all the coaches for keeping that going during that great weather. Special thanks to Tony O’Donnell for inventing "Rugby Rounders", which was the Summer Sensation for the Mini’s.

Last weekend, our Seniors and 7 of the older Midi’s were away for their annual training weekend, at Stirling. It was great to see over 35 players working with our new senior section coach, Derek McGowan, and better still to hear the Seniors buy into their goals for their coming league campaign. It was less nice to see Derek beat me at the pitch and putt on the Sunday morning!

I look forward to catching up with you all over the coming months as we already have a very busy looking diary.

Here’s to a successful and fun filled, 2013/14

Thank you so much to everyone who turned up to help at Rugby Force Day - pitch lines are painted, access road is fixed, "Hub" is painted and cleaned out!

Particular thanks to the new parents who came along - you have only been involved in the club for a few weeks yet you gave your own time - much appreciated.
