Eastern Counties 24-27 Yorkshire

May 19th, 2018 Comments off

Yorkshire beat the Eastern Counties today in a closely contested match at Cambridge University by 27 points to 24. Both Yorkshire and Lancashire, who are both in the Bill Beaumont Division 1 North, have won all three of their games and gained a bonus point in each. However, Lancashire finished top of the table due to their greater points difference, and will, as a result, play in the final at Twickenham.

The Yorkshire side today included Josh Burridge, George Hedgley, James Tyson and Phil Woodhead. Rob Baldwin came on as a replacement in the first half.

The “Clarty” Bulletin

May 16th, 2018 Comments off

Members and friends have been anxiously enquiring about Michael Harrison, who was seriously injured in a farming accident on 3rd May, when he struck his head on a rock while tending an overexuberant flock of sheep.

Airlifted to Leeds General Infirmary, he underwent an operation and is currently undergoing various tests and receiving physiotherapy treatment. Once given the all-clear he expects to be moved to Pinderfields Hospital, when his rehabilitation can begin in earnest.

His progress will be recorded from time to time on this website, but in the meantime all our thoughts and good wishes go to Michael and Christine and the family, who have been inundated with messages of goodwill from all over country.

Minis & Juniors – Preparation for Next Season

May 1st, 2018 Comments off

As you may well already appreciate, there is a great deal of work to carry out at the start of each new season associated with player registration and membership etc.

To go some way to reduce this work load in September, we would appreciate your help by providing now an up to date photograph (head and shoulders) of all players who will be in the U10s, U13s and U16s next season (i.e. those currently in the U9s, U12s and U15s) for RFU passport purposes.

Would you please forward a suitable photograph in jpg format to me at gms@wharfedalerufc.co.uk as soon as possible. Please include the name of the player and his/her current age group. If you do not have access to the internet, would you please pass a copy of the photograph to the appropriate coach with the players’ name and age group marked on the back.

Thank you in anticipation of your help in this.

Youth Registrar & WRUFC GMS Data Officer

Honorary Secretary Needed!

April 30th, 2018 Comments off

The Club’s Honorary Secretary, Howard Whiteley, has given notice that, due to work commitments, he will be standing down at the AGM in July. We urgently need to identify a successor for this important role in order to achieve a smooth transition and we encourage all members to consider if this is something they could step up to do – or maybe you know someone who would be interested.

You will need to be organised, efficient, reasonably computer literate and able to spare 6-8 hours per week including attending monthly committee meetings. You will work closely with the main club committee and key officers – an opportunity to be involved at the very core of the club as we shape the strategy through to the club’s centenary in 2023.

A number of other vacancies will also arise at the AGM including roles involving commercial activities, sponsorship liaison and Health and Safety Officer. As a Club we are very dependent on our 50 strong volunteer base – it is part of what makes our Club special. Please consider if you can contribute some time to this effort by joining our ‘back room’ team.

If you are interested in any of these positions, please chat to Howard (07712 182806) or e-mail secretary@wharfedalerufc.co.uk for further details

Wharfedale Retain National 2 North Status

May 13th, 2018 Comments off

Due to the adverse weather problems experienced during the season causing a sizeable number of deferred matches the decision on the future of our club in National 2 North was delayed until two weeks after the end of the normal season. We completed all our matches by the end of the normal season but Luctonians at that time still had two matches to play and required two 5 point wins to ensure their survival in the league and our relegation.

Things started well for Luctonians when they gained 5 points on Saturday 5 May when they defeated Leicester Lions 22-21 as a result of which they needed a further 5 points. Yesterday they came very close indeed to obtaining those points but, in the end, were beaten 21-22 by Sale the division champions in an enthralling match thus ensuring our survival in the league.

The final score – Luctonians v Sale

We now look forward to the new season with renewed optimism and the hope of far better things to come.
