Firstly may I say what a privilege and an honour it is to become the President of Stamford Rugby Club, taking over from the legend that is Neil Jolly.

I just wanted to give you a quick update, unfortunately there will be no senior, and possibly, no junior fixtures being played before January. Following government guidelines we are able to offer both senior and junior training at present and hope to continue to do so.

In recognition of your contribution to Stamford Rugby Club I would like to take this opportunity to invite you to become a Vice President of the club.

We are committed to driving  standards up across the board, from the quality of the coaching to the all important playing and social experience.  Vice Presidents remain a key and crucial part in developing and driving our club forward, it also provides a great way to reconnect with past rugby friends as well as making new ones. 

This is a very exciting time for the club as we are in the early stages of establishing a new clubhouse and improving the facilities for the benefit of our members

As a Vice President you will enjoy full membership status, including the possibility of purchasing International Tickets. There will be Vice President receptions and lunches during the season to which you will be invited and you will be able to purchase a unique VP tie or ladies scarf. Although some of the above is not possible at the present time we are hoping that 2021 will be the start of a fantastic season in Midlands 2 East (North) division.


We do not have a fixed membership rate but traditionally we asked that Vice Presidents make a voluntary contribution of their choice.  This can be done by registering through the Club’s website (Stamford Memberships) or contacting me.


Support is always much needed and appreciated but never more so than at the present time, as you can imagine the coffers are down due to the lack of funds coming in from match fees to bar takings......sadly this means when we are able to get back together you will need to have your drinking boots on!


We would love you to become part of the Stamford Rugby Club family and look forward to welcoming you on board the purple, black and white express.


We have a facebook page (Facebook) and a website (Stamford Rugby) to keep you updated, please do stay in touch.  I look forward to seeing you supporting OUR fantastic club in the very near future.(New clubhouse update coming soon). 

Keep safe

Jai Nairn
