Youngsters at Fullerians RFC recently had the chance to learn skills and tips from Josh Lewsey. The International rugby legend put the Under-16s through their paces during a training session at the Watford ground. Lewsey, who went to Watford Boys, played for Fullerians as a child and has maintained his club links over the years. He recently rejoined Fullers and is supportive of their current mission to build a new state-of-the-art clubhouse.
“I am really pleased to be involved with Fullerians where I started my rugby career’ says Lewsey, “I wish them all the best with their fund raising for their new clubhouse.”
“So far £550k of the £850k has been pledged” adds Youth/Minis Sponsorship Manager Andrew Robinson. “We are determined to raise the additional £300k this season so we can start building next year!”
Fullerians, which started in 1925, continues to go from strength to strength and the Club is currently looking to recruit new members,
“With the new season nearly upon us we are offering the first three sessions free to interested young rugby players.” says Andrew, “This applies to Minis and Juniors and also our newly formed Ladies and Girls’ teams starting at u13s and U15s.”
But why choose rugby over any other sport?
Enthusiasts will tell you that youngsters pick up life skills,
learn the benefits of team-work, improve their communication and gain confidence. The discipline of the game also teaches children about boundaries for behaviour. And most of all, it’s fun!
But there can be no better recommendation than from the young players who are very much looking forward to the new season.
