The new floodlights were run up for the first time on Thursday and the first team squad spent half an hour working some plays and line outs to make sure everything was correct and enable us to request a few minor adjustments from our excellent Installation company Highlights Floodlighting.  
 
Head coach Swilly Ward commented “The new floodlights are a fantastic addition to the clubs facilities, and coupled with the clubs commitment to maintaining the pitches to a high standard mean that we can train properly on the full pitch, plus the additional line out and scrummaging areas, in perfect conditions  throughout the winter.”
 
Chairman Marc Hemingway added ” We have needed these lights now for several years and it is another indication to all of the players that this club will provide everything possible for them to be able to train hard and improve as players, individually and particularly as a team, we also intend to hold several evening games later in the season for the senior teams and also the U18s.”
