Other Senior Rugby / Sad passing of Mr Alan Robertshaw
« Last post by Ribbflagman on July 23, 2021, 09:38:09 PM »
I have just learnt the very sad news on the York website of the passing of Alan Robertshaw. Rarely if ever have I met a more humble, committed, competitive, gentleman. In the 30 years I have periodically been to York with Ribb there was never anything but a warm welcome and an honest reflection of the game and its result (usually in favour of York). To my knowledge he continued to carry out his duties for the club. Of which there were many, despite his wavering health.
His passing will be a massive loss to York and the void he leaves behind will take some filling.
I fondly remember the shield quarter final at Ribb in 1980 when we beat the high flyers 13 -9 and Alan and his brother were in the second row.
After the match despite their obvious disappointment at losing, Alan was very complimentary to our club and wished us all the best for the rest of the competition.
To me that spoke volumes of the man he was and nothing over the last 40 years has ever happened to change my view of him.
We have lost a true giant of a man not only in his stature, but also his kind personality.
Sincere condolances to all his family and friends at York (of which I am sure there are a great many).

Also to ALL his family who should be very proud of a truly good man.

Sincere best wishes from me (Flaggy) and everyone at North Ribblesdale.

I have been reliably informed that Clubs should ignore the statement regarding clubs in 10-12 team leagues starting on September 25th. All Yorkshire Clubs start league rugby on September 4th, unless of course Covid takes over!

This was what was stated in the lastest return to rugby email from the RFU to all clubs on Tuesday:

Adult Rugby Roadmap – return to full contact dates
 

When can clubs return to full contact rugby? (10s and 15-a-side)

We have carefully considered the preparation period required after a long lay-off. We have taken advice from medics, coaches, directors of rugby and players within the community game to create the below pathway:

Adult Rugby

The updated rugby roadmap for adult rugby is here.

Monday 19 July

Scrums and mauls can be re-instated in training only.

A minimum 3-week preparation period of training sessions follows ahead of match play.

Coaches are reminded that they are responsible for working with all players to assess their physical readiness and technical competence before returning to scrummaging. Players may be at different levels of fitness and conditioning. See below guidance for returning to scrummaging safely.

Coaches must be satisfied that players have undertaken sufficient technical preparation, skill refinement and reconditioning work before returning to full contact match play.

Internal training games are allowed between Monday 19 July and Saturday 7 August. Training games should include an incremental approach to scrummaging and coaches should rotate players every 20 minutes. Clubs should not return to match intensity full contact 15 a-side training games immediately.

Saturday 7 August

Full contact 15-a-side and 10-a-side rugby matches, with scrums and mauls, may resume against other clubs from, and not before, Saturday 7 August.

It is the choice of clubs and players whether they wish to compete in full contact matches from Saturday 7 August. There is no pressure to do so.

Teams that do not yet feel ready for full contact 15s have the option of playing 7s, 10s, XRugby or 15-a-side rugby with uncontested scrums.

Saturday 4 September

Full contact 15-a-side league rugby commences for Men’s Levels 3 and 4, and for 14-team men’s leagues in Levels 5 and below.

Saturday 18 September

Full contact 15-a-side league rugby commences for 12 and 10 league men’s teams in London & SE.

Saturday 25 September

Full contact 15-a-side league rugby commences for 12 and 10 league men’s teams in North, Midlands & SW.

25/26 September

Full contact 15-a-side- rugby commences for majority of women’s competitions.
