31 January 2021 / Club News



Good afternoon everyone,

Firstly, I would like to wish everyone a Happy New Year and I hope all members of St Clears RFC family are coping with the challenges the pandemic brings to us all.

Although the WRU have extended the season, I feel the formatted competition, as we knew it, can now be added to the history books, along with a number of other high profile events across Wales, which succumbed to COVID 19.

The current situation still does not allow any training to take place within the guidance, and with the government's announcement yesterday, extending the lockdown, with little lifting of any restrictions, then it will be a few more weeks yet before any form of training commences.

The return to any competitive rugby is still a long way off, but fingers crossed we can hopefully we can get some games on in the next few months, which will allow us all to get together and enjoy our vibrant clubhouse and entertaining fixtures as quickly as we can.

It remains uncertain and unclear what the next few months will look like and we must continue to be flexible with our approach to any return to play, announced by the WRU.

Like many, I hope that the leagues will return very soon and in good health and I expect that the majority of players from across all age grade teams, coaches and support staff across the Club, will return reinvigorated and ready to go again. Hopefully there will be an even greater appetite from supporters to watch live competitive sport on Saturday afternoons after such a long lay off, when we get the green light to go.

Fast-forward to September 2021 and we could witness a more explosive, high paced entertaining brand of game right through the community game as players become rejuvenated by the return to playing, which will pass into the junior sections, something that will be very welcomed by all.

Finally, I hope that everyone continues to heed the government's advice and stays safe, and when you get your ‘’jab in the arm’’ then you know the route out of this pandemic is another step forwards to the new normality!

Here's hoping for a better 2021 and a return to action.

Yours in Rugby
