A message from Fylde’s President, Jeff Gould
We will be delighted to extend a very warm welcome to the Woodlands on this auspicious day in the Club’s Centenary celebrations. We are honoured to welcome the players, officials and support staff of the RAF Rugby Union Academy on Remembrance Sunday 2019. We are also delighted to entertain Armed Service Veterans from the Club’s Membership and local community – we hope they enjoy their day with us.
We also welcome visitors from the currently serving Armed Forces based in the locality – many thanks for agreeing to attend on Saturday!
This will a busy, inclusive day for the Club involving Mini-Juniors in the morning, assisted by the RAF Support staff and our own loyal and hard working M-J coaches and managers. In the afternoon we will have senior players involved in the main match. As it stands now, the Fylde squad is likely to include one full international who is well known to all of us! Thanks to him and the rest of the senior players for making themselves available in the midst of a busy league campaign.
We are greatly appreciative of the contribution of the Cumbria & Lancashire Air Cadet Band and the BAE Systems Air Workplace Choir for providing the music.
Thanks also for the financial and other support of various local organisations including the generosity of BAE Systems.
Finally, we pay tribute to our hospitality partner Campbell & Rowley for their hard work in supporting this event.
Yours in rugby,
Here are the squads for the game (ko 14.30). Fylde’s line-up will be extended by the addition of a few more players, depending on the after effects of the Saracens game at Kirkby Lonsdale on Saturday.
Please come to support the players on such an important occasion for the Club – and to welcome our distinguished RAF guests.
Good luck to all the players taking part!
