Wanderers look to the future
The world may be in the grip of a pandemic but in adversity there is opportunity. The enforced rugby lockdown has allowed the Wanderers to take stock of its future and there are significant changes on the way.
“Its nearly 12 months since our last competitive game” commented Rugby Chairman Alyn Humphreys “but we have not been idle. Chairman Gerry Blake has set us a task to revive the rugby in the club and to underpin our successful Championship side”
To that end productive discussions have been held with George Taverner our local hub officer and the Wanderers will be reviving their junior section as soon as Covid allows it. Under the directorship of Jordan McDonnell the Wanderers aim to resurrect the section and include within that a girls rugby team.
Jordan commented “there has been a lot of good work done by clubs in the West of Cardiff but we know that there are players not associated with other junior sections and we aim to offer those players a chance to get into rugby. The West of Cardiff also has a number of female players having to travel some distance to play and we wish to offer those players a chance to play in their local community.”
Tony Murphy vice chair of the Rugby committee added “We are also looking at starting up a Youth Team – a side that was once the cornerstone of the Wanderers and there will be some really positive news on that front very soon. In this day and age you need to produce your own players and a Youth team can be a source of rich talent.
