COMMUNITY Group is delighted to announce the continuation of its working relationship with Richmond Rugby until at least 2025.

After partnering together since 2017, the club has agreed a three-year extension with Community Group to manage and oversee the growth of the club’s Community Department following the recent appointment of Ed Roberts as the club’s new Head of Community.

Matt Price, Founder of Community Group, said: “We are delighted to have agreed a three-year extension with Richmond Rugby. Renowned for being an inclusive family community club, we are pleased to be continuing our established partnership and build on the good work already undertaken. We have a fantastic team of coaches led by our Head of Community, Ed Roberts, who believes strongly in making a difference and giving all a chance to access rugby union. Following a busy summer of HAF and Sport Camps, the Richmond Rugby Community Department – powered by Community Group – is excited to be working with our existing and new education providers with the new school year now underway. We will also continue to engage with the wider community and provide support where we can.”

Jimmy Wallace, Richmond Rugby Commercial Director, added: “We have developed and enjoyed a highly successful partnership with Community Group over the past five years and after a lengthy and very thorough review process we unanimously agreed as a Board that it was in the best interests of the club to extend our relationship for another three years. The Community Department continues to go from strength to strength with an extensive coaching programme in over 20 schools and colleges, and together with Community Group’s help we will strive to expand on some of the very positive community initiatives that have already been successfully delivered in recent years.”
