To all North Midlands clubs:
These are unprecedented times – so I wanted to share with you all that you are in our thoughts. No one knows the end date, but it will all be over at some point.
You – players and volunteers – all give selflessly of the most precious thing – time. Time being part of a team. For now the time is for you all to look after yourselves and families.
I’m sure your commitment in our clubs will help overcome the hurdles ahead. We don’t know exactly what rugby will look like on the other side, but my sincere hope is that clubs will eventually come out stronger than before. There will be help for you from various organisations – please be sure to research and take advantage of it.
There must be many front-line workers amongst our members – an especial thankyou to you for your commitment and expertise in caring for us, it really is appreciated.
Above all, please look after yourselves and stay safe. Looking forward to seeing you when this is all over.
North Midlands Rugby Football Union.
