Matches v Sedbergh at Keele University on Saturday


Map of Keele University


Dear Parents

With the Rugby A and B squads playing at a neutral venue (Keele University) this Saturday it is necessary to make you aware of a few logistics:

1.        We will be taking a limited packed tea for the boys for after the game, therefore, we plan to stop on the outbound and return journey.  Boys will have the opportunity to buy some extra food so will need some money if they wish to do so. £5 should be sufficient.

  1. There is no hospitality planned for parents and we are unsure of what facilities are on offer at the University close to the pitches.  However, their sports centre is close by.
  2. For medical cover, we are taking a Paramedic, a first aid trained member of staff in a school car and a pitch side physiotherapist.  Sedbergh are bringing a school nurse and a pitch side physiotherapist.  All parties will work together if there are any injuries to either team.
  3. A map of the site is attached and the pitches in use are marked with red pen.  There is a sports centre near the fields with pay and display parking.  The following link takes you to a Parking map  The Address to the sports centre is as follows:
    • Keele Sports Centre, Keele University, Keele, Newcastle ST5 5BG
  4. Kick off times are as follows:
    • U14 A, B and U15 B at 1:30pm
    • U16 A, B and U15 A at 3:00pm
    • 1st and 2nd XV at 4:30pm

I hope this provides you with the necessary information for a smooth trip for the boys and any parents wishing to make the journey in support.

Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any further queries.

Kind regards

James Hinkins

Director of Rugby
