HUDDERSFIELD RUFC 2015-16
Here at Huddersfield RUFC we have just completed our first season back in National League 2 (North) and finished a respectable 9th position in what has been an extremely competitive league.
I’d like to thank our membership for their tremendous support over the season, there is a very positive atmosphere at the Club at the moment and that is down to you. The last match of the season against Chester epitomised the club spirit both on and off the pitch. The players and coaching staff beating 5th placed Chester in a tough uncompromising match, plus 140 down for prematch lunch for Ladies Day. A great day was had by all.
Our other senior teams have also had great seasons with our Falcons and A Team being unbeaten in their league programs, congratulations to all involved.
The season was completed in great style when our Academy raised the bar even higher by winning the Yorkshire Cup beating a strong Hull Ionians team in front of a large home crowd.
Our Age Grade section continues to grow our players of the future and congratulations must go the our Under 13’s team for also winning the Yorkshire Cup in front of the England National Coach, Stuart Lancaster. He must have been impressed. A huge thank you to all the coaches, parents and players of Age Grade for their commitment and enthusiasm, it’s been a pleasure to experience it.
Having been part of the Age Grade / Junior section for many years in the past, it give me enormous pleasure this year, to welcome you all as FULL members of the Club ensuring that our great Rugby Community is as one consolidated Club.
This season we are keen to maintain or even surpass our place in National League 2 (North) and give our best young players the opportunity to compete at the highest possible level.
TO THIS END WE ARE HOPING TO INCREASE THE LEVEL OF SUPPORT FOR ALL OUR TEAMS AND WOULD ASK THAT EVERY MEMBER DOES THEIR BIT TO HELP ACHIEVE OUR GOAL.
