Chairman's Report: Season Update

Booy urges fans to back Bristol on Friday night


After our fantastic 18-6 victory at Bedford on Saturday, we are now at home against Nottingham on Friday, 8 March at the Mem, with a 7.45pm KO.

This home clash against Nottingham is a vital match in our attempt to remain in the top four of the league and push for a place in the RFU Championship semi-finals at the end of the season. We really believe that, if we can get into the semi-finals, then we are very capable of matching any team in the knock-out phase.

These are exciting times at Bristol Rugby. Andy Robinson started his role as Director of Rugby last Friday and over the last few weeks we have announced the signings of the following five Premiership players for next season: Nicky Robinson, Mark Sorenson, Peter Buxton, Errie Claasens and Andy Short.

We expect to make further announcements in the coming weeks. Our focus now, however, is on this season and achieving a top four finish.

It would be great to see a packed Mem on Friday evening for the game against Nottingham and I would encourage you all to come along and support the team and bring as many friends and family as you can.

You can obtain tickets for Friday night's game by calling the Ticket Hotline on 0871 2082234, by visiting the Club Shop at our offices at Clifton Rugby Club between the hours of 10am and 4pm Monday to Friday or on-line at 

Early bird prices operate until 5pm on Thursday 7th March.

Please get behind the team, Andy and Liam on Friday night in support of the Club's drive for the Premiership.

Many thanks and C'mon Bris.

Chris Booy
