Don’t panic – you haven’t missed a post season match – this photo was taken, one Saturday, weeks ago when Peter, June and Stuart were positioned in front of their ‘Wendy House’ waiting for the waves of fans to start heading down the Avenue. That day they kindly agreed to help with the 200 Club Draw before welcoming the faithful to the home of the ‘Green Machine’.

Supporters will be aware that RFU cancelled the rest of the season on Friday 20 March and have promised a further statement on the implications of the cancellation by mid-April. It is understood that this will address the consequences for promotion and relegation after “a thorough review to ensure fair and balanced outcomes for the game”. The cancellation was immediately followed by a government announcement effectively closing the clubhouse and gym with effect from 20 March.

Dear Member/Supporter,

Our rugby season has been brought to an abrupt end and we now all face difficult times ahead.

The Wharfedale RUFC Grand Draw will still take place and winners will be notified by telephone and listed on the website by the end of April 2020.

The prizes will be distributed when the situation allows.

The part of the draw that involved bottles of booze donated by the membership and won by members present in the clubhouse at the draw will be postponed until an early game in the new season.

Those of you who have not had chance …

Managed by a ThriveWP care plan. ❤️
