RUGBY LIONS: Don’t forget meeting tomorrow (Tuesday)

All welcome at Webb Ellis Road clubhouse 8pm

Former chairman David Owen, who we believe still owns the club, is holding a meeting - open to anyone interested - at the Webb Ellis Road clubhouse on Tuesday (28th) at 8pm.

Mr Owen will give details of the situation and what the way forward may be. It is likely there will be play of some sort at Webb Ellis Road next season in the form of friendlies.

It follows Rugby Lions being thrown out of the league for next season, after they failed to meet the RFU’s deadline to repay all rugby-related debts owed by the company Mike Aland set up to run the club.

Although Mr Aland took over the club last year, we believe the purchase from David Owen had not been completed. Mr Aland has not been speaking to the Advertiser in recent weeks to explain the situation.
