Crowdfunding is LIVE

Donate Here

We’ve gone live with our crowdfunding project today. This is your chance to help future proof the club by helping our minis and juniors as well as our Women’s teams to have a facility we can all be proud of. Ten years ago we had about 40 children training, yesterday we had almost 300 training. This doesn’t include the women’s squad or the future development of the girls section.Get involved and follow the link to donate. Donate Here

Crowdfunding Announcement

This Monday our Crowdfunding project goes live.

We are raising funds for our Carrington redevelopment to improve the facilities for the Minis and Juniors, Women’s team and for our new girls section coming this season.

This is a massive opportunity for us to really transform Carrington to a state of the art development with Children and Women playing rugby as the focus of our project.

We need to develop our changing rooms and other facilities to accommodate our children’s section as well as the increase in numbers of girls and women training. The facilities currently aren’t up to scratch with Showers that need replacing, rooms that need new flooring and improved access for all members of our club.

 

Walls have had to be taken down and walls have had to be put up. All of our labour so far has been volunteers who’ve given up their time to help their club. These volunteers have moved walls, replaced tiles and even put in a staircase so far! We need an additional £20-£30,000 funding to ensure we have a facility that we can use for years to come.

Currently used for the tractor garage, this will be redeveloped into an indoor training area for Tricky’s Pups on a Sunday and for everyone else when the weather is bad

NHS Blood Service

Every week, Sale FC host Give Blood from the NHS Blood Service at Heywood Road. During Covid-19 they’ve used both our upstairs and downstairs bars, plus used the Executive Suite as their coffee break room.

Saying goodnight to the NHS Blood Service after another successful day of donations at Sale Rugby Club, Heywood Road. We will see them again next week.

RFU Suspends All Rugby | Club Statement

We appreciate your patience and support in these difficult times.

Taken from the RFU Website:

Rugby activity includes club training, league and cup matches plus rugby education courses from 17 March until 14 April subject to continued review.

The decision has been taken following government advice in the interests of players, coaches, referees, volunteers, supporters and the wider rugby union community.

Where possible, players at all levels are encouraged to maintain their own personal fitness and keep active during this time, while following government guidelines about safe distance and safe exercise environments.

The RFU will continue to review and monitor government advice and will provide detailed updates on the impact to the season in the coming weeks.

Club Statement:

In light of the Government’s briefing on Monday 16  thMarch and the subsequent RFU announcement, Sale FC will be suspending all rugby activities immediately.
This means that there will be no 1  st XV, Ladies, Colts or M&J’s games or training prior to  the 14  th April (subject to continued review).
Unfortunately, this also means that tours organised by the U9s-U15s will be postponed until further notice. Please also note that our annual Ladies Day planned for  the 28  thMarch will be rearranged for a later date (ticket holders will be contacted regarding refunds).
I am sure you will appreciate that like other businesses, this will be a testing time for our club. However, the Executive and Management Team will continue to work hard to minimise the negative impact on the club. Please note that at this time we will continue to be open and operating day to day, however, we kindly ask that if you have business with the club that you contact us via telephone or email in the first instance.
As a club, we do appreciate that this is a worrying time for members and we urge you to continue to follow the government guidelines.
We will continue to keep you updated via our club newsletter and social media.

Scunthorpe RUFC Appeal & Support

The Sale FC Dogs will be supporting Scunthorpe RUFC and the Walker family this Saturday- 23rd November- by holding a bucket collection ahead of our Richmond fixture. Following the death of local rugby player, James Walker. We would like to encourage all our FC fans to donate generously as part of the rugby community. Lets share our SaleFamily love this weekend in remembrance of a cherished advocate of the sport.

Colin Chapman from Scunthorpe RUFC provides further details

Tragically, the night of Friday 1st November 2019, Scunthorpe player James Walker took his own life. With the team set to play Chester away in National 2, and the Rugby World Cup Final set the following morning, this was news they would never expect- “from hearing the news, the whole club felt numb”.

There was a real determination from his teammates to make sure his name remains in a positive light, raising awareness and as much funds as possible to support those struggling with the same issues James faced. A noble act of community. This is when his team mates and club decided to team up with local charity “One for the Lads”, set up to combat and help men struggling with mental health issues. Scunthorpe players commit to Movember, growing out their “Mo’s” to raise funds individually, whilst as a club, numerous events throughout the season will fundraise and promote mental health as well as the £50,000 target.

In support, a number of our Sale FC players will feature beautiful looking “Mo’s” this Movember to also individually raise funds for the cause. As a club we hope we can contribute generously, with donation buckets doing their rounds in these upcoming fixtures:

Players not featured in the Matchday squad will be doing rounds on the weekend to collect donations.

SAT 23rd Nov vs. Richmond K.O. 2pm
Heywood Rd.

SAT 7th Dec vs. RAMS K.O. 2pm
Heywood Rd.

SAT 21st Dec vs. Rotherham K.O 2pm
Heywood Rd.

Currently…over £7000 has been raised within the first week! The JustGiving page will be ongoing until the club hits their target of £50,000 to help people like Jimmy get the support they need!
