|VRC member-at-large, Matty James.|
Club Day at Brockton Oval is set for tomorrow and VRC member-at-large Matty James says it’s going to be a great day.
James is encouraging all citizens of the VRC Nation to bring their family and friends down to Brockton Oval on Saturday “to support the club, to see the tremendous work the mini and age-grade coaches are doing, and to see the positive direction the club is going in.”
The day kicks off at 10 a.m. with the U19’s game and the third, second, and first grade teams all play afterward. (See below for a full schedule.)
Here’s Matty’s message from earlier this month:
Rowers Rugby would like to invite you to Club Day at Brockton Oval Saturday September 22nd. It’s a great opportunity to bring family & friends down to the famous Brockton Oval to enjoy a day of entertainment and to watch the future Rowers with the mini and age-grade sections providing entertainment with games during the half time of the first and second division games.
With lots of entertainment going on and off the field, there will be a bouncy castle to keep the children entertained and a licensed beer & wine garden for the adults to converse over old times or to welcome the new additions to the Rowers Family. Calabria meat’s will provide a Roast pig for the post match meals at the clubhouse and also for the BBQ at the field for everyone to enjoy.
We all hope you can make it out to Brockton Oval to show your support for the rugby club and lots of encouragement for the mini’s and age grade at the half time games, the club has been good to everyone over the years so let’s make CLUB DAY a tradition also a great introduction to the new members the proud history of the Rowers Rugby.
