We are pleased to now be able to announce a massive congratulations to Youth Chair Alison Slaughter on her nomination for the RFU Mitsubishi Volunteer of the year award. The RFU looks to recognise volunteers who make massive contributions up and down the land and Alison becomes the second person from MFC to be nominated for the national award. 

 

Alison said about receiving the nomination;  “This isn’t for me, this is for all of us that make our club amazing . I am proud that my name is mentioned but prouder Maidstone gain the recognition that we truly deserve from the little legs up to the much older legs!”

 

The club congratulates Alison for a well deserved nomination for all that she has done and continues to do for the club.

04 Nov 20: Club Statement On Behalf Of The Committee

Following the government announcement and update from the RFU, the club is saddened to have to advise the news that all Rugby activity must cease as of Thursday 5th November. The planned return date, dependent on government approval is Thursday 3rd December.

The news is disappointing, but not unexpected as we look to once again contain the virus and stay safe. The positive energy around the club has been a joy to see. With new members across all spectrums and enjoyment being had within the Touch Tournament, it is even more gut-wrenching that we have to halt such a train of momentum. Alas, even trains must make stops, but we will get rolling again.

The committee wants to take this opportunity to express its deepest thanks to its MFC family, who have tried so hard to keep everyone safe, keep smiling and keep the club going onwards.

Here is what this news means for our members, for the next month.

Rugby:

We return to Stage A of the RFU Return To Rugby Plan.

All activity must cease as of tomorrow. This means no training or games of any kind.

Members may use the ground for exercise, provided that it is in line with the government guidelines. This means that it can only be with one other person and you cannot mix/meet others. There can be no exceptions. We do ask that you keep off of the training pitch (The Somme) to allow it the chance to recover in preperation for the Touch Tournament return, as work will be carried out on it during lockdown.

The Club will be attending an RFU virtual meeting on November 13th to discuss the return to the game and possible reduced league structure in the New Year. Whatever form this is in, will have no bearing on promotions or relegations.

The Touch Tournament is regrettably suspended until January.

Grounds:

Grounds work can continue and will do so under the current guidelines as it has previously.

Clubhouse:

The clubhouse must close its doors to members/customers except for essential work. The club is looking at ways to keep its staff retained as well as potential government grants on offer to help us through the shutdown.

Club Shop:

The club will look at ways for a 'click and collect' service for those that are looking for Christmas presents. We will follow up on that. In the meantime, the VX3 and FANWEAR ranges are still available for delivery to your door via the shop page.

We will communicate any new information as soon as we have it.

For now, we want to once again thank all of our members for their continued support as it is, and has been, vital in ensuring that we can all return to normal in the near future. We wish you as well as your loved ones, good health. We also understand that this is a difficult time for many at the moment, so if you would like to discuss your membership in confidence, please contact the relevant Membership Sec.

Stay Strong. Stay Safe. We’ll see you on the other side.

Yours in Rugby,

The Committee

30 Oct 20: Touch Tournament Standings

The in-house touch tournament is in full swing with two rounds of league fixtures completed. With sides representing youth through to veterans, there is been some scintalating & at times scanderlous rugby being played. 

The Colts side with the imaginative name of 'To Be Confirmed' sit at the top of the table with an unbeaten record after four games. They only remain top on points difference from the 'Slammers', who remain hot on their heels. Sat in third just 3 points behind is 'PC Simpson & the Criminals', which almost sounds like an 80's pop group!

Below them is a very interesting contest shaping with 4th - 8th only separated at worse 4 points. The Colts makeshift side of the 'Dream Team' have been surprising those taking them lightly and remain in 5th just behind the 'Two Fours', after an entertaining draw between the two sides. 

The two veteran teams of 'DC Comicals' & 'Golden Oldies' have shown some champagne rugby throughout, but have just been caught on a couple of occasions leaving them in 6th & 7th respectively. The final team 'Ratatouille' are yet to register their first point. 

It's only early days and the table could flip at anytime. Matches are currently scheduled on Tuesday nights under lights, with the finals day slated for Saturday 5th December. 

29 Oct 20: Sponsorship Team Grows

The club is delighted to announce that Becky Thomson has agreed to come on board as part of the clubs sponsorship team. Becky will work alongside Trevor Marvin with her main focus being new business relations & fundraising.

In the past, Becky has been involved in proposals on behalf of Students' Unions and sports teams specifically. These culminated in three-year sponsorship deals with large firms totalling £75K per annum. Becky was previously Chair of the National Student Fundraising Association which was the pinnacle of her 10-year fundraising career. With a passion for sports fundraising and a great portfolio, Becky was looking for a new challenge to apply her attributes and MFC are delighted to have her on board.

The new sponsorship address is MRFCsponsorship@gmail.com, whilst we work on the new website.

 

08 Sep 20: Club Blazers Awaiting Collection & Payment

The delivery of the blazers has been made, sanitised and held in storage. The supplier worked hard to ensure that the delivery was in time for the Veterans tour, which has unfortunately been delayed for obvious reasons. 

We understand that payment for the blazers could be difficult at this time and there are a lot of blazers still unpaid. Please could you help support the club by paying as soon as possible. Instalments are welcome. For delivery, please contact the Admin team so that the blazers can be taken out of storage and transported to the clubhouse.

You can do a BACS transfer to the club account using the details below.
