The BiG project update.

Work continues with our partners, Newcastle City Cricket Club (NCCC), and we now have written confirmation of support from Newcastle City Council for the new Gosforth Sports Association to take over the lease of the Sports Ground; this is an important step along the long road ahead.

The next stage is to document our agreement with NCCC by creating the Sports Association with a written constitution, operating and fiscal responsibilities etc. At the same time we will be adding detail to the first stage of our development plan through to preparing submissions to the City for planning permission. In addition, we are working on how best to provide pitches; a 1st XV, second pitch and a training area. It is likely that some ground works will be required so early decisions will be needed to meet our goal of starting next season at our new Home.

The above will just be the start of a longer term redevelopment plan to provide a permanent and sustainable facility for GRFC and NCCC.

Over the next few weeks, as details of our plans develop we will better understand the financial requirements needed to deliver our new home - we certainly don't underestimate the challenge ahead. One of the first 'fund raisers' is that we are participating in the RFU Grand Draw, a raffle with substantial prizes organised by the RFU. For every ticket we sell we receive 90% of the value. What we need is for players, parents, alicks et al to take on the selling of these raffle tickets to a wider audience than those involved in the club; so don't be shy and please seek out Pete Cowey (not a figure easily missed), our co-ordinator for the Grand Draw.

Exciting times - yes

Challenging times - definitely

Forth to the field,

Many thanks,

Keith

For the first time this season we fielded three sides last Saturday - well, just about!!! Alan Scott is starting to weave his magic. Whilst the 1st XV were being involved in a 12 try fest at Novos, but, unfortunately, coming second by 36-34, the Phoenix travelled with 14 men to Sunderland and again came second by 32-5. The Falcons were even more shorthanded, having only 10 men at home to Novos, but, in the best traditions of life at their level, a friendly was played. At least nearly 30 lads got a game!! Next Saturday sees the 1sts at home to Consett, who are going well in D&N1; the Phoenix at home to Percy Park Pumas and Falcons away to Gateshead III. Our resources will, no doubt, be well stretched again! As the clocks have changed all KOs are now 2.15pm.
