Save the Dates

Training resumes next week, it’s probably worth reminding you all of some important dates to mark in your diary over the next few weeks:

  • Pre-Season training starts a week tomorrow, Tuesday 1st July
  • This then occurs every Tuesday & Thursday through July & August
  • Pimms Club on Friday 18th July
  • Club AGM on Tuesday 5th August
  • Pimms Club on Friday 15th August
  • Opening fixtures are Saturday 30th August
  • League games start on Saturday 13th September

We’ll send reminders and further details for each of these as the dates approach but it’s worth marking these down now, especially the weekends regarding early season friendlies and the start of league rugby.


Knights of Malta, Prepare

You should be salivating once you’ve read this and giving tour some serious consideration. I have put forward one hell of a set of a package including excursions and stash for you. This is what you’ll be receiving for your £300. I ask anyone to try and find a better value offer.

Malta Tour Itinerary
24th to 28th May, 2013

Fernandez Gozo & Comino Boat Cruise

2013 International Tour - Malta
2013 International Tour – Malta

The Fernandes is a beautiful 87 foot L.O.A. Schooner Rigged Turkish Gullet with a large forward deck covered stern deck and a large saloon. The Fernandes departs from the Sliema Marina and cruises North westwards towards Gozo. We drop anchor in secluded bays in Gozo. En-route one sees the panoramic cliffs, coves and inlets. The rest of the morning is spent swimming, snorkelling or just sunbathing and relaxing on the large decks, while our stewards prepare a delicious hot & cold Buffet including wine. After lunch we sail towards Comino, where we drop anchor in the beautiful Blue Lagoon and spend the rest of the afternoon swimming in the magical crystal clear water of the lagoon. Fresh Fruit is served before we leave the Blue lagoon. Masks and Snorkels are available on board Free of Charge. A fully stocked bar, fresh water showers and toilet facilities are available onboard. Private cabins with Private Facilities are available on request at a small charge. Fresh Fruit is also served in the afternoon.
