Coronavirus (COVID-19) Playing Season, Player Training, Club Operations and Functions.

coronavirus imageAs we are all aware, we face uncertain and restrictive times with the Coronavirus today, this unfortunately includes Sports and Club functions. Singleton Rugby Club would firstly like to thank all its valued sponsors and patrons for their continued support of our great Club and game through these troubled times.

Following announcements from Governments and Rugby Authorities all games and training have been suspended until May 2020 at this time, and our Club house is now closed until further notice.

Our Club is working to ensure our playing groups both junior and senior are safe and there continued wellbeing is of the upmost importance to the SRC Board.

The Club have received replacement jerseys, shorts, socks etc for the new season and had planned a great day’s event on Anzac day this year with a special Singleton Rugby Club Anzac jersey that our first grade teams would use to support our Anzac’s against the Wanders at a home game, this event is now cancelled also, and our Club is now closed to all business and functions which will place a great strain on our small club as it will do with many of our great sponsors and patrons.

The Board of the Singleton Rugby Club is working to ensure our sponsors and patrons are kept up to date with any season and game information as quickly as possible.

Again, thank you for your support and stay safe.

NEW GRANDSTAND FOR SINGLETON RUGBY CLUB

Michael Johnsen MP, Member for Upper Hunter today announced that rugby fans will soon be able to cheer on their teams in style and comfort with the NSW Government announcing $900,000 to begin construction of a new modern grandstand and facilities at the Singleton Rugby Club.

Mr Johnsen said the ageing Western Grandstand that was originally built in the 1970s now urgently needs to be replaced to ensure the safety of spectators and players.

“Our Singleton Rugby Club is a proud club that has produced two Wallabies and a Waratah and is also a cornerstone of the community, where thousands of fans cheer on match days and hundreds gather in the clubhouse after full-time,” Mr Johnsen said.

“A new Western Grandstand will significantly benefit the club, increasing the ground’s spectator capacity and crowd numbers, which will have positive flow on effects for local businesses.”
“Sport unites and inspires communities and the Nationals in Government wants towns right across regional NSW have top class facilities that encourage participation, particularly amongst young people, and perhaps even unearth a potential future Wallaby.”

Mr Johnsen continued, saying funding for Stage One of the Western Grandstand project will enable construction of the ground floor of the new grandstand as well as two female change rooms, toilets, a kiosk, a storeroom and a training and rehabilitation room. “Completing Stage One will provide sheltered seating for 430 spectators and enable the grandstand to be used on match days while other stages of work are being completed. Spectators will literally be sitting on rugby history, with the new grandstand seats being repurposed from the Sydney Football Stadium, where fans witnessed countless famous moments like George Gregan’s ‘that tackle’ on All Blacks winger Jeff Wilson.”

Singleton Rugby Club President Shane Thompson thanked the NSW Government for funding Stage One of the Western Grandstand project, which will benefit both the club and the community. “Our club has 230 senior members playing competition rugby, which attracts almost 5,000 fans and fills our club with more than 900 people on home match days,” Mr Thompson said.

“Around 12,000 fans travel to Singleton each season to compete or support visiting teams, which means more business for local retailers, restaurants and other services.”
Funding for the upgrade has been provided by the NSW Government’s Regional Communities Development Fund.

Singleton Rugby Clubs 50th year anniversary - 2016

PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE

Dear Members, This is a very special year for the Singleton Rugby Union Club being our 50th year. We have come a long way from the original meeting in a room at the Imperial Hotel in December 1966, where it was decided to set up to play rugby union in Singleton. There was some hard yards done by some very enthusiastic rugby personal from the beginning up to the present time. If you look at what the Club started out with to the quality facilities that we now currently boast is an absolute testament to all who have contributed over the 50 years. During these 50 years the Club has competed in two different rugby competitions. Originally playing in the Hunter Valley Rugby Union competition to the end of the 1989 season, when the Club then moved into the Newcastle Hunter Rugby Union competition in 1990. Our current coaching staff with Bob Harris in control are seeing our players steadily improving since our re-emergence to the NHRU Premier competition. Bob and his football staff have been working really hard with the players on their fitness and skill aspects, so let’s get in and support all of our teams this season. The 50 year anniversary committee has selected two dates for celebration events this year, being a re-union weekend on the 28th May and a Black Tie Dinner on the 30th July. Please contact the club either directly or via our website for more information. Thank-you to all of our past and present players, football staff, members and sponsors for your generosity and support over the past 50 years. Hopefully our next 50 years can be as successful as our first 50 years.
