Name: Adey


When did you join #TeamRoundheads?

At the beginning of the club’s formation

Did you have any experience playing rugby before? And what attracted you to rugby?

Only at school really but I come from a big family of avid rugby fans.

Why do you think there is a need for Inclusive Rugby?

It provides a safe nurturing place for people who want to learn a sport without fear of prejudice

What have you enjoyed the most about being a Roundhead and what is your favourite memory so far?

How welcoming everyone on the team is, our nights out are becoming pretty memorable, enough said!

What does being part of the Roundheads mean to you?

It’s enabled me to make so many new friends and feel like a part of a family. The exercise is helping my anxiety and depression in a big way, I can’t believe how different I feel.

Finally, to anyone reading this who is thinking of joining with experience or no experience playing rugby, but who haven’t yet decided to #ruckwithus, what would you say to them?

I would say just come along and have some fun. The Roundheads are the best bunch of guys who support and look out for each other both on and off the pitch. We all have mixed abilities but we grow with the support we give each other. Joining the Roundheads was the best thing I ever did.
