HOW DOES THE CLUB ENSURE THAT YOUNG PLAYERS ENJOY A SMOOTH TRANSITION
INTO THE SENIOR GAME ? This year we launched the Colts Academy and we have over 45 players at U18 who are eligible to play and we are trying to run two squads in the Surrey league . The goal of the Colts Academy is to transition the players to senior rugby and our DoR Cai Griffiths will be looking to take players into training with the performance squad when they are ready .
PLEASE FINISH OFF BY TELLING ME WHAT MAKES LONDON WELSH SUCH A GREAT CLUB TO BE PART OF ? The backbone of our club are the volunteers , they put
so much effort into to making it the place it is today , from the coaches , referees , administrators for every section , us on the board , and the supporters . We all strive to keep our clubs reputation as one of the most famous and welcoming rugby club in the world . And its very a rewarding job to do .

LONDON WELSH RUGBY CLUB CHOIR The London Welsh Rugby Club has a long and illustrious history , and its latest torchbearers – the London Welsh Rugby Club Choir – are spreading the good name of the club through music and friendship .
Since its formation in 2003 , under the presidency of Wales and British and Irish Lions legend John Dawes OBE , the choir has brought its unique sound to sell out audiences across the UK , Europe and New Zealand . With strong ties to both their Welsh roots and the exile community centred around London Welsh ’ s famous Old Deer Park , further highprofile appearances on national radio and television followed , including its defining moment , performing at the 2012 London Olympics Closing Ceremony in front of a worldwide audience of more than one billion .
And the choir he presides over goes from strength to strength too , with its 40-strong members kept firmly in line by musical director Michael Wyn Jones . Jones has been a member of the BBC Symphony Chorus and the 1998 Choir of the year Exmoor Singers , and is responsible for a development of the choir few could have predicted . The repertoire has been expanded , a new style of singing introduced and innovations developed wherever possible . The result is a choir singing with an infectious enthusiasm .
