Welcome to Bournemouth RFC Under 16’s.

We are a mixed ability squad and welcome all players at any level of experience; we currently have 25-30 players.  We offer a ‘train for free trial period’ for the first two sessions and all you will need is rugby boots and a gum shield, there is no pressure to join.

We play both Home & Away games, sponsored events and team building exercises that are held in Dorset, Hampshire, Wiltshire, Somerset, Berkshire and Sussex areas.

Throughout the season we do team building events such as paint balling, karting and canoeing to name a few.  This creates a great team spirit, fun for all the team and also helps the players to work together.

We also organise evening charity games, normally held on a Friday night or a sponsored event to raise funds.  The players select the charity they wish to support for the current season.

The playing season is from September – April, Chapel Gate also hold an annual tournament hosting teams from all over the UK.

The U16’s also go on tour every season and these are themed events, the last two had been at London Irish and Saracens.

Whilst having been established in the building industry since 1990, our managing director, Mr. Matt Sturgess had, due to popular demand, decided to expand the business and create M. P. Sturgess Building & Brickwork Ltd. The company was formed in 2005 and was mainly involved with extensions, home renovations and small works of all kinds. Since then the company has expanded into new build homes and large refurbishment projects for major organisations. We pride ourselves on being conscientious, reliable and having a strong work ethos. We strive to work with the customer to achieve the best results possible for every project. Whilst still maintaining our regular client base on the small works section, we are currently establishing the company in larger contracts.

Thanks to a sound understanding of the needs of window and door fabricators & installers, Total Hardware quickly grew to be the first choice for many of the UK’s leading industry players.
