Tewkesbury RFC are delighted to announce the appointment of Martin Thomas who will join the Management Committee as Director of Rugby.

Martin has been a key member of the coaching squad at the club for 13 years currently coaching our Under 16 squad as well as our 1st XV and 2nd XV.  In this newly created role,  he will develop and provide the strategic direction, leadership and oversight of men, women and junior rugby programmes at Tewkesbury RFC.  Working with Martin will be Billy McGinty as Head Coach. Billy who played rugby League for Wigan RLFC, coached at Worcester Warriors and Edinburgh and Martin will initially be looking to get the club promoted back to Gloucester 1, but also strengthen the Senior side by supporting the development of an under 17/18 colts side for the first time in many years. This is an important step forward for the club to co-ordinate the direction of rugby for a seamless journey for our players to progress their career from the age of 6 to 65+  by building on the strengths and confidence of our players at all levels through developing first class coaching.

Thanks to our main Sponsors Cotswold BMW and BPS and our associated sponsors.

The RFU announced on Friday 6 March their return to rugby roadmap, which has been developed alongside the government's roadmap. From Monday 29th March our men, women, juniors and walking rugby will resume training to Stage D1 on the roadmap and will follow the different stages providing RFU and government guidelines allow us to do so. To view training times please see our training schedule on our home page.
Our clubhouse remains closed until such time as the Government confirm that hospitality may open. In addition work is being undertaken to relocate our cellar which has suffered damage from flooding, which may delay opening. We recognize that this is hugely disappointing for everyone, but as soon as we are have more information we will share with our members.
