A BUSY summer has seen Old Leamingtonians receive investment from the RFU which has helped install a second club pitch, new floodlights and the installation of new white plastic pitch barriers.

Installing the new barriers on both the primary pitches will allow the club to stage representative matches either during daylight hours on pitch one or evening games under the new floodlights.

Their stylish appearance is in keeping with the modern corporate identity of a strong community-based organisation which will serve future generations.

The new facilities have already been identified by the Worcester Warriors Academy, the club’s designated Premiership Partner by the RFU, as being ideal for their training sessions in the South Warwickshire and Solihull Schools area.

They have requested a 20-week programme commencing on 3rd October 2016.

Chairman Phil Eales said that he was very optimistic about the future of the club and he is confident that the investment in the infrastructure of community sport will help to attract new players at all levels.

He added: “The club is strong in every area with over 400 kids enjoying mini and junior rugby on Sundays, touch rugby takes place on Mondays, men’s, colts and ladies training is on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays and club games are on Saturdays and Sundays.
