Frampton looking for girls to take up rugby

June 26 2019

THE end of season tours are not long over but pre-season is about to begin at Frampton Cotterell RFC.

Training will be taking place every Tuesday and Thursday through July and August from 7pm to 8.30pm at School Road, starting on July 2.

A touch rugby tournament kept things going in June, with sessions every Tuesday night culminating in a prize tournament on the 25th.

As well as welcoming new recruits for the promotion-chasing 1sts and 2nds, the social 3rds and young Colts, the club is also engaged in a drive to get more girls involved.

The Frampton RFC Girls team is looking for new players aged from 10 to 18. No experience is necessary and the club is calling on anyone who wants to learn new skills, improve their fitness make new friends and have fun to come along to the Crossbow on Monday nights from 6-7pm, throughout the summer months, to give the sport a try.

Girls who are interested can just come along to training, accompanied by an adult for their first session.

The men's team finished off the season with a tour to Exeter. There was no game, as all of the locals were in Twickenham watching the Chiefs play in the Premiership final, but an inter-club touch tournament was held and £520 was raised for charities Macmillan, Cancer Research and the Alzheimer's Society.

The Colts spent a weekend in Newquay.
