New Season here already!
It seems like no time at all the County Cup Finals were being played. Well this Saturday see the first rounds of the County Cup competitions for first teams. and the following week sees the start of an intense League competition. The referee society wishes all clubs good luck and a little reminder that if you keep your discipline, listen to the referee and concentrate on playing the rugby then hopefully we will all enjoy the games.

Refsoc Magazine is reborn
As many will know The RefSoc Magazine is under new editor ship and because of the cost of publishing this will be restricted to an Electronic offering. New RefSoc

Adam Morrison has taken on the role of 'Editor in Chief'. There has been a little delay in producing the first issue of the new era as a few loose ends were tidied up. Adam has also been away enjoying himself with his school (he calls it work!!)

We hope you enjoy the first offering. Adam has plenty of ideas so expect some developments over the next few issues. As always any ideas or contributions are always welcome. Read the new Refsoc .....

Gradings for 2014-2015
The grading committee gathered under darkness at a secret location to consider 96 reports from the 2nd half of the season. The gang of 7 had a full and frank exchange and only a moderate amount of blood was spilt as the decisions were reached and MS was tasked with speaking to those not only who would go up and down but also those who the grading committee felt might benefit from some feedback as to grading committees thoughts.
See April 2014 Grading list
