Welcome to the New Season

Fellow Club Members, August is upon us - welcome to a new season.

The seniors have been in pre-season training for some time and that starts to ramp up over the next couple of weeks. The U16s and U18s start back this week (Monday 7th for U16s, Tuesday 8th for U18s) and then continue on in their usual pattern (see here for training time details). The U14s will be back to training closer to the start of term time and the Minis (P2-P7) will be back in earnest on Wednesday 23rd.

And there's Tartan Touch this Wednesday (9th), starting at 7:30pm.

However, to get the new season off with a bang, we're going to have an extra event on Saturday 19th. The seniors are planning a training game that afternoon, and we're going to run another Tartan Touch alongside that at 3:00pm. If there are enough people interested, then we'll organise a bit of a barbeque too and then the bar will be open until such time as we run out of beer and crisps.

Why not head down that day to watch the seniors and to join in the fun. Bring a friend too, so they can see what a great place the club is. Let's spread the word and get the club growing. And of course, there will be Membership and Youth Permission forms available so this will be an ideal opportunity for you to pay your membership fees, which are now due.

I look forward to some traditional, sunny Penicuik weather and a good turnout to kick the season off in style.

Looking for a New Challenge?

Looking for a new challenge? Fancy a new club? Penicuik Rugby is always looking for new players to bolster their 1st and 2nd team squads.

It is a very friendly and open club with a competitive spirit in the heart of Midlothian that continually strives to develop. A first class coaching setup seeks to improve individual skills and team performance. A club that welcomes players of all ability and quickly integrates newbies into the setup. Make the change and enjoy your rugby

There are still vacancies for the posts of Secretary, Bar Manager, House ManagerSocial Organiser, Fund Raiser and Young Player Representative as well as the new role of Volunteer Coordinator and we'll be looking for people/groups of people to fill those roles over the next few weeks.

At this point, I'd like to place on record my personal thanks to Eddie, Jean, Annie and Tom (who have all stood down from their respective posts) for their continuous efforts on behalf of the club over the years. I hope we can build on the work that they've done to make Penicuik Rugby Club the best place in the country to enjoy rugby.

International Tickets

We now have prices for the 2017 Autumn Test Series and for the home Six Nations games for 2018.

Buy your tickets for the Samoa, New Zealand and Australia games from the club and earn some commission to help keep the club up and running. And the club allocation is your best option for getting hold of those scarce France or England tickets as well.

The offer is available to paid-up club members on a largely first come, first served basis (although some priority for France and England tickets will be given to those who have bought tickets from us in the past as that is what has generated out allocation for those games in the first place).

You can find details of prices etc. by following the links here.
