The schedule for 1st XV Tables Days for the coming season is now in place. Tables will go on general sale on Monday 24th July, but below is the full list to get you excited. Here are some of the Highlights:
30th September – Blaydon – Past Players Day
This season being our 70th season as a rugby club, we are looking to introduce what we hope will become an annual day every season moving forward. Past Players Day has been set aside as a day where we encourage all past players of the club, who have played at various times throughout the 70 years, to get back in touch with their old team mates and put together a table made up of players from their generation.
The hope is that the vast majority of teams across our history will be recognised on the day, and we can have a jaunt back down memory lane during the speeches at lunch, whilst giving players an opportunity to catch up with old friends, alongside getting behind today’s crop of players. We are trying to make this as accessible as possible to all old players, so even if you can’t get a full table of 10 together please get in touch because we would love to have you down on the day and we are sure to get you on to tables for lunch.
14th October – Leicester Lions – Luctonians are in the Pink Hospitality Day
Another new day this year is our Lucs in the Pink Day, which is a day in which we will all come together as a club to raise both awareness and funds for The Haven Breast Cancer Charity in Hereford, and will include the 1st XV sporting a pink set of shirts for the day, that will be auctioned off after, as well as various bits and pieces of fundraising and across that Saturday to raise funds for a fantastic charity.
When you consider all the women who contribute so much to Luctonians, not to mention all players, coaches and backroom staff at the club have wives, mothers, daughters and sisters who could be affected by this at some stage. We think it only right that as a club we set at least one day a side a year where we recognise a charity that helps out the fairer side of our club!
23rd December – Stourbridge
Do we really need to sell this one!? Our now well established, local rivals, visiting us after all business has shut down for the Christmas holidays, with Luctonians who reside all over the country coming back to Herefordshire for the festivities, we expect a bumper crowd and one very special atmosphere at Mortimer Park for this one.
24th March – Hinckley – Orchard Valley Foods St Patrick’s Day
Fast becoming a renowned annual celebration at the club, the Orchard Valley Foods Paddy’s Day celebrations, although a week late, I am certain will be as vociferous as ever with voluminous amounts of Guinness to be chugged down and another live band to finish the evening off in style.
28th April – Sheffield – Securcom Hospitality Day
We hope this season that the final day will not be one of nail biting and worry, but whatever the fortunes of the 1st XV at this stage, the visit of Sheffield on Securcom Hospitality Day, for the final game of the season, will give all supporters and members of the club the opportunity to show their appreciation to the players for their efforts at the end of a long campaign, and as has become customary give any departing or retiring players the send off they deserve.
With ‘headline stealers from the Sundogs Festival, Call of the Kraken playing live in the clubhouse after the game, it will be the usual bouncy end to what we hope will be a highly successful campaign.
