We have been in discussions with the RFU Rugby Development group about extending the function of our Pool system. We have renamed it, now called POOL/CASUAL RUGBY. The aim of the function of this button, accessed at the top of the Home page, is to assist teams to gain non-League fixtures when they have gaps in their Fixtures List. It can also help teams who are not part of our League system and any teams who might drop out during the season. I hope it is of help!
The next round of courses will commence in the new season but anyone interested in becoming a referee and would like to apply to take the Level 2 Course should do so by contacting John Powell or Fred Swarbrick for information and assistance on how to apply. email@example.com Fred.Swarbrick@nowirul.org.uk Press View More to get information about courses in this area.
Please update your Club's contact details on this website. Also inform John Powell of any change in your Fixtures Secretary by email.

Our Associations of Referees Sponsored by The Rogerson Homeserve+ Company
After a series of 4 Meetings we have now been able to cover, with neutral Referees, all our Fixtures, outside the scope of our Societies, in The Raging Bull North West Leagues, from Sepember to January. We've got to thank all the Gentlemen who have offered their services and we know that they will be respected by all the players under their control as they appreciate what these Gentlemen are offering. Thank you to our Managers of these Groups, Mr. Simon Muckle (Wilmslow) Mr. Bert Lambert (Colne and Nelson) and Mr. John Powell (Preston Grasshoppers). F.S.
Club contact details
I have been asked to remind Clubs to update details of their Contacts on the website. People are complaining that after looking for details to contact Clubs the people they are ringing are not in post any longer and in some cases no longer with the Club.
