We hold monthly coaches and managers meetings throughout the season at the Maso’s club. These meetings are an essential source of information about both FRFC and Association activities, as well as important updates relating to coaching and player development. It is also a great forum for you to add your experiences during the season and how we, as a group, can further our players’ enjoyment.
It is essential that either the coach or manager attend every meeting. Can those parents/players/etc who have elected to coach or manage this season please email our Secretary, Tracey firstname.lastname@example.org, with your email and phone details.
Thanks all and see you on the 19th.

Hi all, we’re putting in team sheets later this morning. We have withheld players from team sheets who have not yet paid. It is therefore vitally important that you do pay ASAP as if we don’t get you on a team sheet you will not get a card in time for the season start. You are also not permitted to play in trials as you won’t have insurance cover.
You can pay online and we will also accept cash payments next Wednesday 5 March at Gannons Park canteen from 5.30. You can also collect gear that night.
The first Coaches and Managers meeting will be held Wednesday 19 March, 8-9pm at Masos.
