Since the latter part of last year the club has been in discussions with the University of South Wales CC (USW) regarding the formation of a partnership. These discussions have involved members of the Management Board, playing members and the club captain, along with representatives of USW, and I’m pleased to confirm that agreement has now been reached.
What this will mean is that USW will use the RCC ground for their home fixtures. They have both a men’s and a women’s section and the games will be played on Wednesday afternoons. The partnership will mean more income for the club, greater bar takings and the name of RCC being spread farther and wider. The fixtures of USW will eventually be placed on the website and if received earlier enough within the 2021 Fixture Card.
Can I thank the club members involved in the discussions for their help and positivity, as well as those who initially gave council of previous experiences: their insight was vital. This is another great step for the club and ties us in with the second largest educational organisation in the south east Wales area. They have the reputation of being the dynamic, go ahead kid on the block, which is probably why this fit feels so right.
