Sunday 1st January, 2017 - Happy New Year

Happy New Year to all the players, members, families, parents and friends of Newbridge RFC from the Club President, Chairperson, all the Committee, the Trustees and all the Coaches.

December, 2016 - President's Christmas Message

Message from Dave Ashe, President of Newbridge RFC :-

As President of Newbridge Rugby Club I wish to convey the good wishes of the Executive Committee to all our players, our supporters and all your families. Let me wish you all a happy Christmas, prosperous and winning New Year. 

The 1st XV have had gotten off the ground slowly this season and we have had some bad luck in some results.  Beaten by Edenderry at home with the last kick of the game cost us and missing a conversion in the final minute against Railway Union to give us the win. However, there certainly are good signs that we are playing much better now. The recent win against Edenderry away has lifted us all.  We are forward looking now and I have no doubt that we will come good with five league matches still to go (3 of which are at home). Roscrea are up next on the 8th of January and we owe them one.  I would like to thank Rory and Dave our coaches and I know they are looking forward to the first-round Provincial Towns Cup fixture against Tullow (away). Our 2nds XV team are becoming a force and under team captain Killian O’Hagan they are also improving. Watching them each week I know that they are fielding a good team and I have no doubt they will come good.

Our Under 17s are doing very well so much so that we are able to field two teams at this level.  Our Youths & Minis section are superb and the recent Under 15 win over Naas was a joy to watch as was last weekend's Under 13 win over Enniscorthy. It is a great pleasure to see, and hear, so many Minis boys and girls enjoying playing the sport of rugby. In our 20th year as an amalgamated Club we are well established and our Club has a terrific internal spirit and so let’s continue to build on it. The IRFU Club Draw has recently been successful and I wish all contributors the best of luck in that draw.

Is mór an onóir domsa, Uachtarán Rugbaí Droichead Nua, gach guí a casadh don Nollag ar gach éinne atá ag imirt in ar gclub, lucht tacaíochta agus muintir gach éinne. Ba mhaith liom beannacht um Nollaig ar gach éinne agus bliain nua saibhre a casadh oraibh go léir.

Again, on behalf of our club, I extend to you the warmest season's greetings for a very happy Christmas, prosperous and winning New Year. 


Dave Ashe, President Newbridge RFC

November, 2016 - CWO Urgently Required

We are URGENTLY looking for someone, probably a parent of one of the minis or youths, to lend

a hand. Don't be put off by the title, Club Welfare Officer, which is a very important role in the club.

However it won't take up much of your time and you don't need prior experience. You will receive

a full briefing. 

Every club is obliged to have a CWO, because the welfare of our young players is so important. All

of the club's coaching staff, referees, officials, etc are volunteers, and most of us are parents ourselves,

so we really do appreciate how busy everyone is. But we really do need someone to volunteer,

otherwise our club, your club, will face sanctions from Rugby's regulatory body, and these sanctions

would be detrimental to the future of your club, its members and players.

To find out what's involved please contact the Club Secretary Fiona Nugent on 087 2027217 or

Chairman Mick McCoy on 086 8117877 or email webmaster@newbridgerugby.com .
