Gloucester Rugby would like to inform supporters of the details inviting them to an open day at Kingsholm Stadium on Monday 25th August (Bank Holiday).
With plenty of new faces in the Cherry and White playing squad and coaching staff, Kingsholm will open its doors for the perfect opportunity for our supporters to get to know the new recruits and give them a big welcome to the #glawsfamily!
There will be plenty of chances for the players to mingle with supporters, sign autographs and take pictures and the Community Unit will host regular signing sessions throughout the day.
There will be activities on offer for all the family from when the door opens at 12pm with the playing staff leading skills sessions and plenty of outdoor activities such as a Giant Connect 4 and a Giant Buzzer.
Stadium Tours will also be available, taking supporters behind the scenes at Kingsholm and the inner-sanctums of the changing rooms.
Entry to the Open Day is free to all supporters and the event lasts from 12pm to 3pm, and everyone at the club is looking forward to welcoming you to Kingsholm on Bank Holiday Monday, in the lead up to the new season!
Speaking after the 55-0 win over CA Brive, Jonny May told GRTV that he's delighted that the team's hard work is starting to pay dividends but was equally happy for his friend and team mate, Charlie Sharples, on what was a big night for his fellow winger.
Speaking to the local media this week, David Humphreys insisted that Gloucester are looking forward to kicking off the new European Rugby Challenge Cup against Brive on Thursday evening, although an unfamiliar opponent and a five day turnaround will pose a challenge.
Director of Rugby David Humphreys felt that his Gloucester side put themselves in a position to put Saracens under real pressure at Allianz Park on Saturday, praising his team's commitment and defence, while admitting that a lack of accuracy hit their chances in the second half.
Speaking to the local media at Allianz Park, Tom Savage was disappointed after the defeat at Saracens, but claimed Gloucester did plenty of good things and could've taken more than a losing bonus point.
