HP23 4JY “Youth rugby is massively important to the club; we have a strong section and yet if we are going to encourage the youth to come all the way through to the seniors we have to have the same ethos, culture and coaching throughout the club. Currently, a large number of the senior squad have come right through from Minis. “We are a community club; we however need to involve the town far more than we currently do. Tring is a special place and we must spread out far more widely to let everyone know what a successful rugby club we have. “We are not currently satisfied with the facilities we have. More land would be fantastic but not easy to achieve, the clubhouse is old and not fit for purpose so there is a plan in place to create a new facility and hopefully planning will soon be submitted to the council. It is vital that we bring the whole club along with this process to provide the best facilities possible and have a facility that is fit for purpose. 24 Issue 72 “If we do not become ‘one club’ there will be divisions, this will prevent us from developing into the wonderful club we could be, with everyone pulling in the same direction there is nothing we cannot achieve. The playing side is just one aspect; we must be not only sustainable but progressive in every area to know where we are heading and work together to get there. “The ambition of becoming the best run amateur club in Hertfordshire is within our grasp. A new clubhouse and better overall facilities would be ideal but making every member feel valued and part of the club over the coming years would be our greatest ambition. “We have some outstanding players, coaches, parents and members here. The foundations are therefore in place to move the club forward. We must do so at the correct pace and communicate throughout; there is a huge amount of commitment to achieve this.”
