YMCA Sports Ground

Lord Hawke Way

off Bowbridge Road

Newark

NG24 4FH

Registration – from 19:30

Training – 20:00 – 21:30

Coronavirus (Covid-19) Advice to Clubs

March 5th, 2020 by

The following has been received from the Rugby Football Union.

There have been a number of queries about whether we are putting out any information for clubs on the Coronavirus.

As a Union we will not be giving advice or guidance as the latest information is available via the Government website and is updated daily. It is important that clubs use the government’s guidance to inform their knowledge, available here  https://www.gov.uk/guidance/wuhan-novel-coronavirus-information-for-the-public?gclid=CjwKCAiAvonyBRB7EiwAadauqeYJ2mMvVaQkTC9HPUsOyQlxnV0e-1avnXWHM41AduzME9tzdXCk3xoCDlwQAvD_BwE

As tour season is approaching we advise clubs to monitor via the Government  website the situation at their overseas proposed tour destination . The link is as below

NLD U17S TRAINING ANNOUNCEMENT – MONDAY 24 FEBRUARY

February 19th, 2020 by

The continuing bad weather has caused many issues across the region and has impacted significantly on available playing space for Clubs and Schools alike.

On the basis that it seems unlikely that the existing flooded pitches will have recovered in the coming days, we have decided to hold the next U17s Training Session at:

YMCA Sports Village

Lord Hawke Way

off Bowbridge Road

Newark

NG24 4FH

As you enter the facility, the main Sports Centre will be on your right hand side. 

THIS IS NOT WHERE WE ARE TRAINING.

Head towards the top left hand corner of the Car Park and pass under the barrier. The Changing Rooms and Pitches are located by exiting the top right hand corner of the Car Park. Follow the path until you see the Portacabin accommodation.

THE SESSION WILL TAKE PLACE BETWEEN:    20:00-21:30.

PLAYERS SHOULD ARRIVE IN GOOD TIME TO REGISTER THEIR ATTENDANCE AND BE READY TO TRAIN BY 20:00.

We appreciate that the session runs a little later than normal and accept this may impact on those travelling further distances. Unfortunately, the lack of grass facility around the area has placed added pressure on the 3G facility, and their is limited availability as the facility has numerous regular bookings.

AS MENTIONED, THIS IS A 3G PITCH AND APPROPRIATE FOOTWEAR NEEDS TO BE WORN.

Any player unable to make the session is requested to contact the Squad Manager (Lee Slack) as soon as possible at:
