Presentation of Winnel Cup and beginning of the 8th Season for Ross RFC Juniors

September 24, 2017

Ross Rugby club juniors are now in their 8th Season. We run age groups from our pups (aged 4) right through to our U16s.

We celebrated the start of the season by presenting Riley Knapman-Jefferies with the Winnell Cup.

Each season every age group coach nominates a “clubman” within their age groups. All of these names go into a draw in which the winner of the Winnel cup is drawn. They also get vouchers to purchase a new pair of rugby boots. Riley was the lucky winner this year. The cup was presented to him by our 1st XV Captain Casey Morgan and our Juniors Chairman John G’Napp.

Joe Winnell was President of Ross RFC from 1973-1976. Joe and his wife Mary contributed greatly to the running of the club. Both of their sons played for Gloucester, Rich was a Prop and Phil was a 2nd row. Both returned to play for Ross after playing at Gloucester. The cup has been donated by the Winnel family. The club are very grateful for their ongoing support.

We are always looking for volunteers to help run our section. We need coaches, assistant coaches, fundraisers, kitchen volunteers, admin volunteers plus lots lots more. If you would like to help please contact us, contacts can be found on the “contact us” page of this website or through our facebook page “Ross rugby club pups, minis and juniors”
