Alton Rugby Football Club

Update to Squad Information Sheet

Welcome to Alton RFC’s U15 squad: Information for All Players & Parents

Players: All squad members have DOBs between 01/09/1999 and 31/08/2000. 

Coaches: Dai Bugler (Head Coach, Level 2 RFU); Number 2: Theo Androuliakos (Level 1 RFU); Greg Dalton (Level 1 RFU); Adam Burden continue as per last season. Josh Smith joins the coaching team this season as backs coach. Welcome Josh! 

Training: Tuesdays 6.30- 8pm and Sundays 10am- 12pm (when there is no match). Showers & changing facilities are available (as long as the seniors are training too; they usually are!) Note: Players will only be allowed into the clubhouse after training if their kit is mud-free so having a shower not only spares your car seatsbut means you can pop in for a drink after training. 

At: Alton RFC, Anstey Park, GU34 2NB. 

Bring gum shield/mouth guard; boots with rugby studs (preferably); water bottle; training kit, shorts, shirt, waterproof top/ bottoms (Please note: any kit worn for contact must have no zips to avoid injuries). Please also make sure your son has an inhaler in his kit bag, even if he uses it infrequently. 

Matches: All fixtures are now on the website. The squad arrive at 10am for pre-match training with   matches kicking off at 11am. Arrive in training kit (need waterproof, warm top & maybe track suit bottoms for when not on field). Match playing shirts are provided but you’ll need black rugby shorts and Alton rugby socks. Skins/thermals with or without pads can be worn if desired. 

Bring “number ones” for after the match: black trousers, shirt & tie, smart (school) shoes. Remember a towel & shower gel (& a bin bag for muddy kit)! All players are expected to join the opposition squad for some post-match food in the host’s clubhouse. You can buy an Alton club tie, shorts & socks from the club shop on Sundays in the clubhouse. A school or other tie can be worn until you get a club tie. Other Alton kit (waterproofs, tracksuits etc) is available online from O’neills:
