TGIF Returns with a ‘Back to the 90s’ Party – Friday 28th of September

Yes, folks the ladies of the Venus team are hosting their 5th party at the clubhouse with a 90’s theme.  So dust off those 90s clothes (if you fancy dressing up) and head on down to the clubhouse where you will be able to partake in delicious food, great drinks, good tunes, and games.   For those feeling peckish – fresh seafood will be on the menu.   Are you in the mood for fantastic shots?  Well you’re in luck, jelly shots will be available at £1 and polish vodka for £2.  Also, beer pong will be up for offer for the low price of £12 (for the jug and cups).  So get ready to have excellent aim folks, so you can hit the cup each time!  Money will be raised to help the club get the much needed flood lights in Millwall Park so come down and give generously.  See you there!

RFU Grand Draw (Lights Fund)

The club desperately needs it's members to help raise funds for floodlights so that we can train this coming Winter. I'm sure you have all seen how quick the nights are drawing in now.

Each year, the RFU presents club with an amazing way to print cash. It's called the RFU Grand Draw and clubs get to keep 90% of all the revenue they get from ticket sales.  If everyone on our club mailing list bought just 2 x £5 books of tickets, then the club would make over £7,000!  Most importantly last year’s top prize was £10,000!

Gareth Hargreaves has kindly agreed to co-ordinate the admin for the draw this year with the help of the playing team members and the bar staff who will be selling the tickets.

We don't have the actual tickets in hand as yet (we are due to get these at the start of October). In the meantime, you can still buy 'tickets' so we can get the monies in asap. If you want to buy some tickets, please fill out the raffle pre-order logs along with giving your money (either speak to Shaf/Louise or the bar staff). Gareth will then post the actual tickets (retaining the stubs for entry in the draw) once we have them, so please ensure your address on the log is correct.

In the coming week we also hope to be able to get a web-page set up as well where you can buy tickets.

Video of Matt Shorrock’s Testimonial Match

Tim has added a short video of Matt Shorrock's testimonial match to the Millwall Facebook Video page and also on YouTube.  This is an opportunity for the players to see themselves on video.  Also, some players may not play again for the club due to retirement or moving away so it has become a bit of a historical record.
Tim will also put together a DVD which will contain all of the photos that both he and Edna took on that day along with a full 15 minute video of the game. These will be sold for £15 at the clubhouse with all of the proceeds to be contributed to the Flood Lights Fund.


Interested in volunteering behind the bar?  Please email ryan@millwallrugby.com if you’d like to volunteer.  Those that are currently trained should have access to sign up but please feel free to contact him if you need access again.
