PRE-SEASON training is now well underway at Chard RFC ahead of the 2019/20 season.

Director of Rugby Luke Aplin is extremely pleased with the high turnout and the terrific enthusiasm being shown, with numbers in the high 30s for all sessions to date.

Senior men’s training takes place every Tuesday and Thursday evening, and the club is pleased to see the return of several key players.

These include Liam Mustchin and Jack Oaten, who will add to the competition for places in the front row and the backs.

Chard RFC runs three league sides on Saturdays and would welcome any new players, who can make contact with Aplin on 07850073625 or

Players should meet at the club for training sessions but a number of these sessions will take place on the adjoining school pitches, because of the ongoing work which is being carried out on the main pitch and the pitches on the Crewkerne Road sites.
