2016-17 Message from GRFU’s new Communications Sector Head – Tony Fielding

I have been tasked with communicating effectively with the game, the public and the press. I can only do this with your help. The website is regularly updated and contains a wealth of information about what GRFU is about and how it can help you:

Everyone you need to contact or seek help from is listed on this site together with regular news

Our Twitter address is: @GloucsCountyRFU - and we have over 3600 followers, rising weekly.  This account is linked to our Facebook page:  GloucestershireRugby  - so all tweets also appear on the FB page.

We now have an Instagram account: gloucestershirerfu - which I expect to grow in use over the year.

So we are in a position to reach a lot of enthusiastic rugby people.  In addition we will continue to provide the annual Handbook, which includes all contacts in the County and three editions of the Gloucestershire Rugby News [GRN] each season.

Communication is a two-way process, so I am asking you to forward all news worthy information to me at or tweet it and we will retweet etc.

We would be delighted to receive stories, however brief, about any and all of the following human interest stories, for inclusion in the GRN or on social media:

  • young players succeeding overcoming problems, progressing to adult rugby
  • long serving players
  • players switching clubs
  • local derbies
  • festivals
  • tours
  • new facilities
  • new revenue raising activities
  • new sponsors
  • significant new signings (players/coaches)
  • RFU Accreditations

and so on and so on. The more this is supported by photos the better but remember to give the names of those shown, if applicable and get their permission to send their photo to us.

Everyone is really interested in knowing what everyone else is up to so please share. Thanks for reading this.

Tony Fielding
