Update on Bar Manager and Food

The club would like to announce that Leigh Griffiths has decided to take a step back from the club to concentrate on his other business which has been taking more of his time. Leigh feels that he is unable to devote the time and effort that the role merits. He will still stay involved in the club as a sponsor and VP and will help out when he can, so we will still see him around.
We wish him all the best and thank him for the work that he has done over the last couple of seasons.
Mandy Fisher will assume the role of Bar Manager from December and will be supported in the background for a time by Leigh.
Whilst this is a complete change for Mandy she is very enthusiastic about the role and looking forward to the challenge.
The Exec committee are pleased with the appointment and would ask you all to please give her your support.
For the foreseeable future Rez Aminnia has volunteered to continue to prepare match food for Saturdays and Sundays and food for after training on a Thursday. This marks a departure from the way catering has been handled and funded previous to this season and the club will be reviewing this on an ongoing basis to ensure all parties are happy.

Cirencester 2nd XV 28 – Tetbury 1st XV 0 (8th Nov. 2014)

Cirencester entertained Tetbury in a friendly fixture on Saturday with an early kick off agreed to allow both teams time for a shower before watching the England v NZ game in the clubhouse.
Conditions were far from ideal with a strong wind and driving rain. Despite this the pitch was in good condition and allowed for some excellent rugby.
