RUGBY FOOTBALL CLUB
Merton RFC play their home games at the Morden
Recreation Ground on Faversham Road in Surrey
and their first team currently competes in the
Surrey 3 League. They are led by the team of Chair
Jack Canniff and President Paul Webster and the
club is looking to progress under their guidance.
Last season they put together a solid league campaign,
compiling a record of nine wins and nine defeats from their
eighteen league matches. This saw them finish in a safe mid-
table position with forty eight points on the board.
This should provide them with the perfect platform from
which to build as they look ahead to next season. As long as
they are able to retain their current group of players and can
perhaps make one or two quality additions they should be in
with a good chance of pushing on up the league.
One of the highlights of the team’s performances has
been the attacking brand of rugby that they have been able
to produce. This has been reflected by the fact that they have
racked up 469 points in the league alone at a rate of more than
twenty five per game.
This will certainly have meant that any supporters attending
their matches will have been well entertained and should
encourage more of the local community to get behind the side
in the future. This in turn has the potential to provide them with
a valuable source of additional revenue which is particularly
important in the current financial climate.
Merton RFC is a club that is committed to playing an
important role in their local community and this is reflected by
the fact that they also run additional sides. This allows them to
give far more players an opportunity to play the game every
week compared to if they only ran one side.
Another benefit of having extra teams is that it allows the
first XV 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.
Murton RFC is a fine example of the important role that
a club can play in the local community and they deserve
tremendous credit for this. If they continue in the same manner
they should be able to look forward to a bright and successful
future for many years to come.
