Rugby Club Issue 72 - Page 11

Hungerford Hungerford RFC is not a club to focus solely upon their senior section and this is reflected by the fact that they also have a thriving youth set up. This part of the club looks to provide young players from the local area with an opportunity to play the game in a safe and enjoyable environment whilst helping them to reach their full potential. It is important for any club looking to be successful over a sustained period of time to be able to produce their own talent, particularly in the current financial climate and this is an area that they appear to have covered. Coaching staff involved with this part of the club are confident that they have a number of players currently on the books with the potential for a bright future in the game. In order to help make sure that these players enjoy a smooth transition into the senior game they also run a number of additional sides. This allows them to gain experience of adult level rugby even if they are not yet considered ready for first team action which can be an important step in the development process. Another benefit of having an extra side is that it allows the first team to benefit from far greater strength in depth. If they are ever left short on numbers through injury or work commitments they have the option of calling up replacements with a limited amount of disruption. Off the field the club has some fine facilities in place with their clubhouse giving them a home and a heart. They pride themselves on providing any visitors with a warm welcome and make the facilities available to hire for certain events. The social side of things is important for any club and having such a great base can only help Hungerford to progress. They are showing Lions matches at the club and this, as well as being an enjoyable event, can also help to keep everyone involved during the traditional off-season. There is much to admire about the fine set up that Hungerford RFC currently has in place and this is thanks to all of the hard work that has gone into making the club a success. Hopefully they will be able to continue in the same manner for many years to come and everyone at Rugby Club Magazine wishes them the best of luck.
