Paul Garrad
Created : 15/09/2020

We have sadly heard that Paul Garrad a long time member, player, referee, committee member & supporter of the club sadly passed away on last Tuesday.

Paul played for the club when we were Old Guildfordians, and after the merger of the seniors with Guildford and Godalming Paul returned to play as a member of Stoke Park RFC aka ‘The Bisons’. When Stoke Park RFC merged with Guildfordians Paul continued to play for the club and he took on the role of administering International tickets for the whole club which was not a job not to be under estimated.

I played many games .....More

Weekly Update 19th June
Created : 22/06/2020

We are sending all our best wishes to you as some of the restrictions are reduced and an element of normality starts to return. But, there’s no rugby as yet. We are still in the planning and preparation stage and we’re doing everything we can to be ready. In the meantime, stay safe out there.

Your committee met on Monday 15th on Zoom and the meeting was very well attended by section chairs, coaches and other members leading the charge on different important aspects of club life. We discussed a long list of key topics including, of course, the key safety issues associated with the .....More

Weekly Update 12th June
Created : 12/06/2020

Your committee very much hopes that all is well with you and your families this week. There is no big news, so it’s a shorter update this week. Sighs of relief all round! Planning and preparation are continuing but we have no way of knowing what the coming weeks will bring. So, as the Government says, we stay alert.

Your GRFC committee is meeting on Monday 15th, as a regular meeting but now held by Zoom. We will continue to plan the re-start of rugby across the sections but also start to reinstate some of the longer-term projects. For example, defining our next 5 years’ objec.....More

Weekly Update 5th June
Created : 06/06/2020

We hope that this last week has gone well for you and that you and your family are staying healthy. We are in very difficult and confusing times, as lockdown restrictions are reduced and furlough and other complicated changes come on top of generally bad news.

The reactions around the world to the events in the US will have struck us all and important injustices have been quite rightly highlighted. It seems a good moment to state categorically that GRFC stands against systemic bias, racism and unequal treatment that can still be found in our communities and, sadly, in sport. We a.....More

Dear Guildfordians,

We hope you are staying healthy and that your family and loved ones are well and coping with this worldwide tragedy.

The last two months have brought no rugby (except, perhaps, glorious highlights of past matches) and have tested each and every one of us in different ways. So many people have been on a 'coronacoaster’ of emotions, worrying about the world, the country, the county, the town of Guildford and the future for jobs, the economy and public health.

In the rugby community, we are all still hoping for training over the summer.....More

Our Rugby Values

TEAMWORK

Teamwork is essential to our sport. We welcome all new team members and include all because working as a team enriches our lives. We play selflessly: working for the team, not for ourselves alone, both on and off the field. We take pride in our team, rely on one another and understand that each player has a part to play. We speak out if our team or sport is threatened by inappropriate words or actions.

RESPECT

Mutual respect forms the basis of our sport. We hold in high esteem our sport, its values and traditions and earn the respect of others in the way we behave. We respect our match officials and accept their decisions. We respect opposition players and supporters. We value our coaches and those who run our clubs and treat clubhouses with consideration.

DISIPLINE

Strong discipline underpins our sport. We ensure that our sport is one of controlled physical endeavour and that we are honest and fair. We obey the laws of the game which ensure an inclusive and exciting global sport. We support our disciplinary system, which protects our sport and upholds its values. We observe the sport's laws and regulations and report serious breaches.

SPORTSMANSHIP

Sportsmanship is the foundation upon which rugby union is built. We uphold the rugby tradition of camaraderie with teammates and opposition. We observe fair play both on and off the pitch and are generous in victory and dignified in defeat. We play to win but not at all costs and recognise both endeavour and achievement. We ensure that the wellbeing and development of individual players is central to all rugby activity.
