After a very challenging 2018-2019 season in North One East league where we started well but latterly found ourselves unfortunately relegated to the Yorkshire One league for the present season.

A big thank you must go to Shaun Fearn who acted as Club Coach throughout the season often in difficult circumstances through the shortage of players due to injuries.

We Look forward to playing in the Yorkshire One league again, it's a very competitive but friendly league which we played in for many years.

This season we have secured the services of Mike Myerscough as Director of Rugby. Mike latterly played for Leeds Carnegie and has represented England up to Under 18's level. No pressure then on Mike who I am sure will endeavour to turn out for Bridlington when he can.

We must also thank Callam Sanderson our Youth Development Officer who has promoted the sport throughout local schools resulting in a massive increase in our minis and junior players. We wish Callam every success for the future as he moves to pastures new away from his hometown of Bridlington.

The work on the new extension which has six changing rooms, physio and officials rooms has now reached completion which gives en-suite facilities for all including disabled players and members.

Due to the Club management re-organisation, which resulted from the recruitment of our General Committee last year to work with the Directors, more time is available now to spend on our major projects. The General committee is ably managed by the Club Chairman, Phil Todd supported by his committee who have some positive and challenging ideas which will move the club forward during the next year.

Our Mini and Junior section have a new Chairperson in Jean Gordon who I am sure will further develop the youngest of our playing representatives into the potential senior players of the furture, Jean will be supported by Andy & Tracy Kempton, as well as our qualified volunteer coaches who coach from the youngest age group of the brilliant under 6's.

The Club is always needing sponsors for the players, games and teams to match ball sponsors or advertising. If you feel you can help please contact either myself, David Robinson or Phil Todd and we will gladly discuss every opportunity with you.

Thank you for your support.

Neil Arton
Club President
