Whitehall-sponsored Colchester Rugby Club kicks off the season

We are looking forward to another great season this year as proud headline sponsors of the Colchester Rugby Club. We’ve sponsored the club since 2014 and see it as a great investment in the community, impacting the lives of hundreds of children and adults across 20 teams.

Colchester RFC, who are part of the London and South East Division of the Rugby Football Union, started the season on a positive note with a win from the 1st XV against Shelford last Saturday.

Margaret Whiteman, the club’s first female President: “Despite losing out by the smallest of margins last year for promotion, the 1st XV are going all out to get there this year with a new Head Coach Ben Scully, a new Captain Danny Whiteman and a strong team of experienced and new players.”

Mrs Whiteman has introduced training sessions for ladies and girls recently and is currently working with the management team in preparation of moving to their new club grounds in summer 2020.

We wish the best of luck to all the teams in their training for the upcoming season.
