New Grounds in Aberfeldy

Since its inception in 2015 Aberfeldy RFC has played home games in Kenmore thanks to the generosity of the Kenmore Sports Association.

On Saturday 22nd May the goalposts were conveyed along the riverside path from Kenmore to the new ground on the shoulders of volunteers from all sections of the club. On arrival, the posts were swiftly reassembled and erected after a generous libation of Aberfeldy Malt. Hopefully, this sacrifice will ensure a profusion of points scored by ARFC!

While the posts were en route, our regular Saturday morning Rugby Tots session for pre-school children went ahead and at 1pm we launched our Youth Section led by newly-appointed Development Officer Adian Kerr who provided a series of one-hour taster sessions for ages from Primary 3/4 up to Secondary under 18s. We are looking for volunteers to help with these sessions – rugby expertise is not necessary. If you would like to assist, please contact us at info@aberfeldyrfc.co.uk.

Aidan’s appointment was made possible by the support of the SSE Griffin and Calliachar Community Fund, the Basil Death Trust, and many other generous supporters.

Present for the day was SRU Midlands Council Representative Hazel Swankie who said “Since their modest start five years ago as an occasional sevens team, Aberfeldy RFC has progressed rapidly to being a strong competitor in the island League. Today I’ve been delighted to see how they have broadened their appeal to boys and girls of all ages via their close cooperation with Rugby Tots, the launch of their Youth Section and the participation of their Ladies Section in flitting the posts and managing the club. Manifestly there is energy and strong team spirit within the club, and I a confident that today’s transfer of the posts to their new field heralds continued success for Aberfeldy RFC.”

The post-flitting event raised sponsorship of £1050.00 thanks to the generosity of members and friends. Half went to support our Youth Section with the rest going to Breadalbane Riding for the Disabled. RDA started up again on 17th May.

They have loyal volunteers, but more are needed – it’s rewarding and it is fun!
