Saturday 25 November – Wharfedale v Sale (A) (Updated)

November 21st, 2017 Comments off

Dale now enter a tough few weeks with matches against clubs in the top five. Tynedale at home next week and then Hinkley away. This week we travel down to Cheshire to play Sale who are fifth in the table. They have shown this season that they have a good attack but the defence is even stronger as they have the lowest points against total in the league.

There were two entertaining games last season between the clubs. A narrow defeat at home and a try fest at Sale when Dale came a valiant second. Sale have a quartet of Sharks in their ranks but we should not let that trouble us. Those amongst the large gathering at the Avenue on Monday night saw the Foresters taking on a very strong Darlington Mowden Park XV and if the first team match the commitment shown that evening then owt can happen.

The Sale Rugby Club’s ground is in Heywood Rd, Sale M33 3WB.

For those attending on Saturday, admission is £10, however if you book in for lunch admission and lunch together is £15. Sale have a fairly informal lunch with a player/coach question and answer session prior to the welcome and response by the President.

Anyone wishing to book lunch should contact Sale’s secretary/steward Brad McBride on

The team selection will follow shortly.

Rugby Parking – 2&3 and 9&10 December

November 17th, 2017 Comments off

Dickensian Festival Parking at Upper Wharfedale School

Please be aware that the School is once again doing a charity car parking collection on 2nd & 3rd December and 9th & 10th December for the Dickensian Festival. They will be charging ALL vehicles £5 per car so please don’t expect a discount if you are coming to watch the Green Machine v South Leicester on the 2nd or for any other matches on the dates indicated. It will be £5 for everyone – to the benefit of several good causes. Of course, as the Dickensian Event will be in full swing by the time our senior matches kick off it is likely that the car park will be largely full by the time that you arrive so a bit of forward planning may be required.

John Goodfellow

November 16th, 2017 Comments off

It is with great sadness we announce the passing of one of the Club’s Life Members, John Goodfellow.

John was a great supporter of Wharfedale RUFC, and in particular of the development of youth rugby in the Craven area. His enthusiasm was none more evident than the help and assistance John provided, through Skipton Building Society, when the Club first established the WRUFC Rugby Academy. We are grateful to John for all his support over the years, and our thoughts and best wishes are with his family and friends.

John’s funeral will be held at Holy Trinity Church, Skipton on Thursday 23rd November at 12.30pm, followed by family only at the crematorium. A Wake will follow at the Rendezvous Hotel, where all are invited to attend.
