Lucton Travel Arrangements

The bus to Lucton is due to pick us up from The Village Inn on Sunday morning at 7.30am
We WILL NOT be leaving at 7.00am, the Teamer text is INCORRECT!
7.30am should get us to Lucton in time to register the team and grab a coffee before the first KO and allow the boys to warm up before the first game.
PLEASE be on time for the bus!
It WILL go without you at 7.30am!

Lucton Coach

It is looking likely that we will be taking a coach to Lucton at a cost of £10 per seat.
Can you please let me know on Sunday at the Bonymaen game how many seats you will require for the journey. If you aren't going to Bonymaen but are travelling to Lucton by coach you can email the number of seats you want to:

If I havent heard anything from you by WEDNESDAY 18th APRIL I will assume that you do not require any seats on the coach. Thanks

Sunday - Bonymaen Away

We will be playing at altitude this weekend with the away game against Bonymaen rescheduled from earlier in the season. Teamer invites have been sent out, 10.30 meet in Bonymaen
Apologies for a late Teamer sent Friday, there was a problem getting the texts to send from Teamer but that should be all sorted now.

Please continue to check the blog regularly for information, as Teamer are now limiting the number of texts that can be sent out, texts will only be sent out for games. All other information will be available on the blog.

Travel to Lucton

We are traveling to Lucton for the last time on 22nd April.
The other age groups have decided to not take a coach this year, because of the costs involved, because of the long journey time by coach compared to a car and also the flexibility of people to leave/stay at the end of the day at a time that suits them.

With this in mind, we are looking at the various options for travel depending on the numbers wanting to make their own (or shared) way there and the numbers wanting to be transported to and from the event.

If you could please answer the poll on the side of the blog------------------------->
Please answer once only and we can see what numbers there
are and the best option for travel on the day. Thanks


Training will be this Friday DAY at 10.30am in Underhill
See you all there.

Porthcawl Away Sunday

Our fixture away against Porthcawl this coming Sunday will now be an
11.20 am MEET! Not the 10.30 meet that went out via Teamer. Please allow yourself plenty of time to get to Porthcawl so the boys get a chance to warm up before the game, which kicks off at 12.

The Porthcawl RFC website has them situated somewhere close to a pub on South Road, but from what I can tell the on Google maps, the map below is for direction to where we will play the game further up South Road. See you all there.

Could everyone going also please reply to Teamer, at the moment we only have 12 accepted for the game. If we still only have 12 accepted as we get nearer the game we will have to cancel the fixture!
