Hopefully you and the club are now in the full throws of the season starting and returning to some form of normality. We have everything crossed that this will remain the same throughout the season.

You may be aware that this season we have a new RFU council member, Jackie Dyer, (Belper RFC) who joins Chris Brookes (Long Eaton RFC) representing our Clubs at the RFU.

Jackie and Chris, along with all the NLD Management Team are always available to speak to if you have any questions concerning our Clubs, Rugby and anything to do with our game.

This coming season there are going to be significant changes with the Future Competitions Structure which will be implemented along with other structural and financial changes. We will keep you updated and engaged as much as possible. We would ask that you make sure all your club’s details are up to date on GMS so you are kept fully informed and that you join the NLD Facebook page and reqularly check the NLD Website.


Please circulate this information within your club. Thank you.
