Coronavirus Update – 3rd January 2021

We hope everyone had a Happy Christmas with your families and we wish you all a happy (and better) new year. With the recent decision to delay the opening of all primary schools in London Boroughs and the staggered start for secondary schools across the region, as a club we have taken the tough decision to delay the return of junior and mini rugby until Sunday 17th January at the earliest, along with a number of other clubs in the region. We hope by taking this action we can do our bit to reduce transmission of COVID among our players/coaches/staff and volunteers.
We are monitoring the latest guidance from both the RFU and government and are expecting more information to be released this week.

Unfortunately, as a club we are in a difficult situation in terms of offering training to all our members. At present RFU guidelines stipulate that no adult rugby is permitted in Tier 4, age grade players (u18) may only travel within their specific Tier 4 areas to train and play and volunteers (including coaches) living in Tier 4 should only travel within their specific Tier 4 areas to enable participation to take place for u18s only. S&ERFC’s clubhouse and Priest Hill grounds are both located in Surrey, but around 50% of members live in a London Borough, which is a classified as a different Tier 4 area. Therefore, as the RFU guidelines for Tier 4 stand at present, around 50% of our members would not be allowed to train or coach at the club whilst we live under Tier 4 restrictions.

We as a club hope to be back training and playing rugby again as soon as we are allowed as we all miss it but please bear with us in these difficult circumstances.

Stay safe and we look forward to welcoming you all back to Rugby Lane soon.
