Following our recent drive to ensure the coaching structures in place for the Youths teams of Dolphin RFC for the coming and next few seasons, we are making our follow-on plea to all members to please assist in encouraging more young players to join us at U13, U14, U16 and U18 level.  If you could spread the word among children, grandchildren, relatives, friends and neighbours it would be fantastic.  In particular as boys enter rugby-playing secondary schools, the numbers drop within Dolphin so anyone from 1st year secondary school upwards most welcome.
