Barnes Rugby's Director of Rugby Jamie Turner looks forward to the season ahead

Hello and a Big Barnes welcome to all players and supporters of Barnes rugby club to the 2017/18 season.

We are looking forward to meeting up with many familiar opponents, and also some new ones.

Our squad from last season remains mostly intact, and we have also had some exciting new players at pre-season training.

New players are always welcome and we train on Tuesdays and Thursdays 7.30pm - 9.00pm.

The Committee have been busy working away in the background, making improvements in the clubhouse and our training facilities.

The mini and junior sections continue to thrive, this season we will be putting out our first Under 16 side, and the time is fast approaching when the junior and senior sections of the club will be linked together, a huge achievement for all concerned and an exciting prospect.

On the coaching front we have added two former players to the team: Pat Crossley and Joel Burgess. They have both settled in quickly at pre-season, and are great additions to the coaching team.

With the season fast approaching, and starting off with two home fixtures on September 2nd and 9th, against Sutton and Epsom and Tunbridge Wells respectively. Please do come down and see what we are all about!

Whether you are a player, supporter or parent , I look forward to seeing you down at Barnes this season supporting the green and gold!
