Help Needed at Kilnsey Show

July 20th, 2018 Comments off

Wharfedale RUFC are running a Big Hot Dog stall at Kilnsey Show on Tuesday 28 August.

We will need some extra volunteers this year so please can you let me know if you are willing to give up some time to help. If you are attending the show then please think of giving up an hour or two to help run the stall. There is a dedicated team who will be spending the whole day on the stall but we could do with more help.

You can let me know by email to or ring me on 07793408910.

If you let me know what time you are available that would be great.

I will be putting up a list with timed slots in the club house, for the two pre-season home games on 18th and 25th August. Please help if you can.

Player Update (2)

July 9th, 2018 Comments off

Pre-season training is picking up in intensity and the players are responding really well. We are particularly pleased to see three long-term absentees back in the fold, with Will Davidson and Sam Gaudie returning from injury and Will Bell back training again after a couple of years of family commitments.

The following new players have now signed up: –

Ben Leacock – A 6’8” second row from Kendal keen to step up a level. Ben has been attracting interest from National League clubs in Lancashire but opted for Wharfedale and is loving the Wharfedale experience.

George Martin – A young prop out of Sedbergh who is studying at Leeds Beckett and has played National 2 rugby for Huddersfield. He was recommended to us by Dan Harrison at Sedbergh.

Kristian Sharples – A friend of Reece Ward from his junior days at Old Brodleians, Kristian is a versatile wing/full-back who has played for both Otley and Huddersfield in National 2.

Together with last week’s three new boys (see their photographs below), this is the busiest close-season for signings that we have had for a long time and the coaches are working on one or two more. There is lots of energy and enthusiasm at training so please do try to get down on a Tuesday/Thursday evening or Saturday morning to sample the atmosphere.
