Following the Government’s announcement yesterday (Wednesday 30 December) that Gloucestershire would move from Tier 3 to Tier 4 with immediate effect, the RFU and GRFU have issued guidance in terms of what that means for rugby.
All adult training sessions/matches are cancelled until further notice.
Age-grade training can recommence on Sunday 3rd January 2021 BUT this will be dependent on a pitch inspection on Saturday morning as our pitches are currently frozen. Whilst the club will do everything it can to offer the best coaching possible, we do understand if parents would prefer to keep children at home whilst we are in Tier 4. If play can recommence the U7’s to U11’s will train from 9.30 am – 11.00 am followed by the U12’s – U16’s from 11.30 – 1.00 pm. Please watch our social media for updates as well as communications from your team coach. As regards fixtures we have taken the decision to cancel all fixtures until further notice.
Update 2nd January:  Following a pitch inspection on Saturday 2nd January, the grounds are not sufficiently thawed to allow play to commence tomorrow.  As regards any mid-week training your coach will update you as to what, if anything, each team will be able to do this coming week.  We will be reviewing both Covid-19 updates in relation to Tier 4  and the pitch situation in the coming days and will let everyone know what our plans are moving forward.
As everyone is well aware the new strain of Covid 19 is 70% more transmissible and extra caution must be taken. Therefore, we are implementing new guidelines that must be followed when arriving at the club:-
1. Only one parent per player is allowed when attending the club grounds. We recognize that some parents have young children and where possible we would ask that they do not attend.
2. You must also scan in using our unique NHS Track and Trace QR code featured around the grounds.
3. Please remember to maintain social distancing at all times.

We would remind everyone that if you have NOT yet re-registered your child to play on GMS you must do so before returning to training. If you need help or have any queries please send an email to
