I met some of your team in Lyon last week while I was on a bit of a retirement tour of Europe. Brilliant bunch of people and as usual, the typical rugby crowd, good fun no trouble. Pass on my best wishes to them, they were a credit to your team.
Following this weekend's match against Romsey RUFC at Alrebury Park, the club were shocked and saddened to learn that Romsey's 'Man Of The Match' Macauley Campbell (seen on the ball here) tragically lost his life in a car crash on Saturday night.
We as a club would like to extend our heartfelt condolences and sympathies to Mac's family, friends and everyone at Romsey RUFC affected by this tragic loss.
Many Alresford players have already been in touch to express their shock and offer their condolences. The general feeling amongst our players is that he was a talented young man on the pitch and a real gentleman off it. He will be missed.
Alresford Rugby Club welcomed representatives from Covers Timber & Builders Merchants at Alrebury Park on 14th January 2016 to extend our thanks for their support in becoming our most recent sponsors.
Former Hampshire and RFU President LeRoy Angel has been awarded a British Empire Medal in the New Year's Honours list.
Born in Winchester, LeRoy started playing rugby at Kings' School at the age of 11 and on leaving joined Winchester RFC, where he is still a member. He was also a member of Alresford RFC.
He played in Winchester's first XV for some 600 appearances until retiring with a knee injury aged 33 and was club captain from 1973 – 75. He also played county rugby for Hampshire, the first County Championship match being against Sussex in 1968, which Hampshire won, and the last against Eastern Counties in 1976, which Hampshire lost. With 26 caps, he became the most capped Hampshire three quarter since World War II and remains the most capped wing three quarter.
LeRoy has given 35 years of voluntary service to the game at local, regional and national level and was until June 2015 Chairman of the Rugby Football Union Foundation Trust (RFF), which offers grants and loans to enable clubs to apply for funding for facilities.
The former Hampshire wing became an accomplished administrator and turned his architectural training to the service of rugby, playing a key role in advising the RFU on its development of Twickenham Stadium’s four stands since 1987, including the re-building of the South Stand.
RFU President Jason Leonard said that the honour recognises "service to club, county and country over many years" and is a "testament to that selfless giving" as "rugby and sport relies on such servants (as) great examples to us all.”
The 1st XV extended their undefeated run with a third league win against Aldershot & Fleet. A convincing full time score-line of 52 - 0 ensuring that the Brian Lacey Bowl remains at Alrebury Park for a while.
The 2nd XV went down fighting against Eastleigh at the weekend, losing 29 - 8 despite their spirited defence and line-breaks.
Last weekend's action from the 2nd XV's first outing this season against Andover is now in the gallery. Whilst the match ended in a loss, the photos really don't do justice to the hard work and determination shown by the 'Vagrants' and we think we're going to see some real achievement from them this season.
Unfortunately, Kingsclere RFC are unable to field a full side for tomorrow's 1st XV fixture. It's a great shame as we always enjoy hosting them at Alrebury Park and we wish them all the best for the coming season.
In the absence of an alternative fixture for this weekend, our next fixtures are Saturday 10th October with both teams at home:
1st XV vs Aldershot & Fleet RFC
2nd XV vs Eastliegh RFC
