“We rely considerably on local businesses to fund and help us to maintain the high level of care that we give to all our players, mini, junior, senior and veteran, which is only possible through the army of volunteers who all have to be trained, registered and otherwise supported.
“We are an expanding club and our volunteer base is ever increasing.”
Head of Mini Rugby Ross Thain, who has a team of around fifty coaches and admin staff, stated that the club has experienced a surge of new players within the last few months and that each age group now has a minimum of 30 registered players with some age groups approaching 50.
