“Barnes RFC spread the rose to Togo youngsters”
Barnes Minis sent a load of spare shirts to a remote village in Togo and here the boys proudly wear the rose of Barnes...
Barnow are now truly a global brand - Chairman Michael Whitfield said : "we see ourselves as a real challenger for global marketer of the year in 016 and we will look to rival clubs like Man United and Real Madrid"
Minis Youth Coach Greg Watson said "next time we want to send lots of balls , and then who knows, maybe a tour"
Our lead Youth Coach, dour northerner Al Lydon, who's replica shirt one of the boys is proudly holding, was overcome with emotion. Once he had rubbed the tears from his eyes he managed to say in his strong northern brogue: "I'm right chuffed, the lads done brilliant, their champion this lot, I'm made up"
Well said Al and Greg!
