MRFC - A great weekend promoting the club

Dear Players & Parents,

I hope you are well? I wanted to update you on an exciting weekend of
promotional events that the club have just participated in.

Firstly, on Saturday 3rd of October, Millwall Rugby Club were invited
to host a 'stall' at the Island Homes Fun Day on Sir John MacDougall
Gardens (Westferry Road). The fun day included bouncy castles, free
bbq food, a petting zoo and a DJ.

A few hard working volunteers handed out Millwall RFC flyers and mini
rugby balls - which were often seen being kicked about the park. Many
people came up to chat, about rugby, the club and the community in
general so the event was a massive success in terms of both
recruitment and promotion (there were no other sports clubs there
doing promotions).

Thanks to Elise Page, Mike Costin, Steven Corleys and Victoria
Shorrock for running the event on behalf of our club.

On Sunday 4th of October, we were invited to promote our club at a
'Sports Jam' event at Mile End Park. The event was run by our funding
parter Access Sports and some 3000+ kids were in attendance along with
sporting clubs from all over the east end of London.

Millwall hosted a stall with another local rugby club, Shoreditch
Sharks, and again we came off well in terms of recruitment and
promotion, working in tandem with the Shoreditch club to recruit
players from our respective areas.

Thanks to Sarah Edmead, Chezzie Mclaughlin and Steven Corleys for
running the event on behalf of our club.

Participating in events like these are vital for the success and
future of our club - the more people that are aware of us, the better
we will integrate into the community, especially when the events are
themselves based on the Isle of Dogs.

It would be great to see more adult players helping promote the club
at these events - there's nothing better to get a former rugby player
to pull on their boots again than talking to a current player!

Finally, well done to Millwall's Under 13 team, who won their first
ever fixture in the Essex Leagues on Sunday. Centre Bobby Grace scored
two tries and kicked 5 conversions on the way to a personal tally of
20 points while fullback Jacob Lajolie also chipped in with 15 points
of his own, scoring 3 stunning breakaway tries. Backrower Alfie Duffy
and prop Michael Dola-Lami also scored a try each.


The young lions next league match is on 8th November on Millwall Park
against Barking, with kick off planned for 11am.
