Clubhouse openings, training & games (w/c 12/1)

We are trialling mixed fitness/skills (non-contact) training on Mondays in the New Year with Wednesdays continuing to be full contact male and female training. There were good numbers for both days last week, lets keep that momentum up and make the numbers great!!

Here are the games scheduled for this coming weekend (as at time of writing). 
  • Millwall 1st XV - Upper Clapton @ Home (Hackney/Millwall Park TBC)
  • Millwall Llamas - Upminster @ Home (Hackney/Millwall Park TBC)
  • Millwall 3rd XV - Away @ East London
  • Millwall Venus - Away @ Beccenhamians (on Sunday) 
Please ensure you let us know your availability ASAP so it makes our selection meeting on Wednesday easier. Please email with your availability.

Club Openings/Meetings: 
Monday - Open from 7pm   
Fisher will be opening the club on Monday before training starts at 7pm so you can use the club to change etc. and Ed will be there to serve you after the training session as well.

Hargreaves 'HumpDay' (aka Wednesday) - Open from 7pm    Gareth will be looking after you this week. So make sure you come down to the clubhouse and celebrate reaching the mid-point of the week and refreshing yourselves after the contact training session.
We currently have a shortage of Duty Managers and therefore we are no longer able to support opening the clubhouse every Friday night. We are going to trial opening on the last Friday of every month to see how that goes, so the next time the club will be open on a Friday is 30/1.

If you are interested in becoming a duty manager please speak to Gareth or Paul for more details about what is involved (2 sessions every 8 weeks or so) or email Gareth on expressing your interest.

Saturday - Open from 3.30pm
With 2 home games this week Gareth will be opening the club from 3.30pm to welcome all the teams back this Saturday, so come down as well and show your support.


HELP YOUR CLUB - RFU Grand Draw - Raffle tickets now on sale behind the bar
As you may be aware, the RFU has a grand draw with some great prizes - see list here.
You can buy tickets behind the bar for £1 each or a books of 5 tickets for £5 each to be in with a chance of winning. We had someone in the club win 4th prize 2yrs ago so it does happen.

What is even better, is that it is a great way to support and raise funds for your club - with 90% of the ticket price going to the club.

If you are able to take a few books and sell them at your workplace or to friends and family that would be even better. Please speak to Karen or email her on for more information. We can also give you the books from behind the bar.

We are also looking at ways of selling these on our website to make it even easier for those of us who live away from the club to participate - keep an eye out for a note letting you know about this.
