Despite the difficulties with pitches at present over 150 Under 6 - Under 12 players took to the field in Gosport Park today to begin the 2017/18 season. 

A number of new members boosted squads and new volunteers stepped forward to help run this huge undertaking every Sunday.

Mini/Youth Chair Louise Rabjohn, with the assistance of Executive Committee member David Legg, organised the registration of players for the coming season.

Team Managers were kept busy and the clubhouse was packed as parents avoided the unwelcome arrival of autumn.

It was a hard day's work by everyone involved in what was a tremendous show of community rugby.
