17 Feb 20: Club Review by VP Graham Norton

The Committee has agreed to take Vice President Graham Norton's offer of compiling a review of the club. Graham will be interviewing members of the club as he constructs his report on the state of the Maidstone FC and provide recommendations.

He will be looking at all aspects of the club for his report that will be submitted to the committee at the end of the season. We ask that you please assist him, should he contact you. Alternatively, if you feel that you would have a constructive input, please get in touch with Graham at grahamnorton100@hotmail.com.

05 Feb 20: 1st XV Manager Steps Down

The club wholeheartedly thanks Richard Weston for all of his contributions to the club, as he steps down a 1st XV Manager / Head of Playing.

Richard coached through the Youth section here before taking on the Mustangs Manager role. He transitioned to 1st XV Manager four years ago and has been a linchpin for the 1st XV set-up. After the resignation of Pete Barford, Richard stepped up as Head of Playing to help steady the ship whilst the club searched for a Director of Rugby.

Despite his interest in the role, his hard work and dedication was also being spotted at work as he moved into a more managerial role around Christmas. This meant that he could not look to fulfil the DoR role but has given as much time as he possibly could to the club as it sped up the recruitment process. Now that the new Director of Rugby is in place, Richard can step back and concentrate on his new role at work.

The club thanks Richard for all of his efforts, commitment and support over the years and most recently, during a busy time with his work life. We all hope to see Richard when he has some spare time around the grounds and in the bar!

05 Feb 20: Club Statement: Director of Rugby Appointed

 

The club is pleased to announce the appointment of Steve Oram as Director of Rugby. Steve has coached all the way through at youth level before becoming the youth manager at Aylesford. He then had stints as a coach at National sides Blackheath & Canterbury with endorsements coming from both Des Diamond & Andy Pratt. 

Steve will begin work with the coaches George Flatman, Dave Charlton & Mustangs Manager Jason Smith straight away as we build for the future. He will be responsible for the senior playing sides and will work with the youth section as we progress all age groups along with the Academy with Mick Walker. 

Throughout the process Steve has been astute with his observations of the team and his vision for the future of the club is in line with the committees. 

On behalf of the club we welcome Steve Oram as Director of Rugby and look forward to the future. 

The club also sends a massive thank you to Richard Weston, for holding the fort as Head of Playing in the interim.

02 May 20: Sponsorship Team Formed

The club is pleased to announce that it has formed a new sponsorship team.

Further information will follow in due course.

*** IMPORTANT MESSAGE FROM MEMBERSHIPS SECRETARY****
posted: April 04 2014

To all members paying their membership by Direct Debit.  
 
It has come to our attention that some players are cancelling their direct debit at the end of the season with a view to restarting the payment at the start of the next.  Please be advised that the direct debit is the club's way of providing flexibility to its members and is intended for a 12 month commitment.  Any player that cancels their direct debit at the end of the season will be required to make up the deficit before starting again the following season.  This club needs the financial support of it's members by payment of their annual subscriptions.  Players not fulfilling their obligation to pay their subscription are placing unnecessary financial risk on the club and leaving it up to their fellow members and friends to fund their club.  Please be cognisant of this and play your part.
 
Thank you
 
Mike Laurenson
Membership Secretary. 


Old Maidstonians Rugby - Shirt Sponsorship
posted: July 29 2013

Are you an Old Maidstonian? Are you involved with local business? Would you or your company like to put something back into the school community?
 
Old Maidstonians Rugby are looking for a shirt sponsor (or sponsors) for this and future seasons. The side plays a number of fixtures throughout the season, primarily during the academic holidays; including the traditional fixture against Maidstone Grammar School's 1st XV plus what is looking like becoming an annual fixture against a Maidstone Rugby XV.
 
If you or your company would like to put something back into the community that gave you your academic start in life and feel that sponsorship of Old Maidstonians Rugby is the vehicle to do so, then please contact Jonathan Davies via the Old Maidstonians page on this website, or alternatively contact Maidstone Rugby's sponsorship representative (Bob Hayton) via the contacts page.


Club Trades Directory
posted: February 15 2014

A reminder to members about the club’s Trade Directory service on the website. We think you may feel you would prefer to use other members of your club rather than suppliers you know nothing about at all. Members listed within this register are there because they have asked to be included.

The aim here is twofold:

To keep business within the club family.

To provide good service/value to our members.

At the very least we would expect Maidstone Rugby members on the directory to offer good service and value for money to their fellow members. Inclusion on the directory is free to members, for non-members who wish to be included there is a nominal annual fee.

If you would like to be added to the directory then please contact Bob Hayton.

Note: Access to the directory is through the navigation button located at the bottom left of the website homepage.
