Good Afternoon All,
As you know the new rugby season will soon be upon us, as BRFC First Team are due to play against Loughborough Students on Saturday 4th September 2021.
The club needs some new volunteers for various roles on Matchdays to share the load with our current group, who have been involved for many years. The roles in question are as follows:
Assistant Fourth Officials
We are looking to add to the existing group in order to spread the games out more throughout the season. As you know the first team got promoted to National 2 North and there is a requirement within this league to provide two fourth officials for home games.
The National 2 North league is made up of 16 teams, so we need to cover 15 home games, our existing Fourth Officials are available for the first few home games, so the plan will be to have a group of 2-3 people shadowing Keith or Archie during these matches.
I have a Fourth Official Protocol to provide more information as to what the role entails (please email me if you are interested).
Taking Entry Fees and provide General Advice on parking/WC Facilities etc as visitors arrive. After 14 years of being the Head Gatekeeper, Linda Barlow is stepping down and we need a few volunteers to share the role with Brian and Ossy (please email me if interested)
Do we have any budding reporters in the club? A requirement of being within the National 2 North is that we need to provide a Match Report for each home game, now we are looking into this at the moment to establish what is involved, however we think it will entail a piece of 80-100 words, providing some background on the game, scorers, any issues/events, special plays etc etc etc (please email me if you are interested, this can be more than one person to share the load throughout the season)
Many thanks for taking the time to read this post and a special thanks to our existing volunteers who do a lot of work behind the scenes, whether this is on Match Days, coaching during the week etc without you all the club would struggle on many fronts.
