Moment of the Month: Blyth + Ashington = Blyton

Moment of the Month: Blyth + Ashington = Blyton

Tuesday 28 November 2023 Written by: Mark Smith

Falcons Community’s Moment of the Month for November is awarded to Blyth RFC and Ashington RFC, who have combined to create Blyton RFC.

At the beginning of the season both Blyth and Ashington were struggling to form teams at youth level from U13s to U16s, so together they made the decision to amalgamate both teams, forming Blyton RFC.

The coaches are from both clubs, looking after different age groups, where they also have regular fixtures which are also shared between the two clubs. 

The newly-formed club of Blyton now have 80-plus young players attending weekly training sessions and matches. This has allowed the continual growth of grassroots rugby, and without this combined effort the two teams would have missed out on the first stages of their rugby journey.

Both Ashington and Blyth RFC are active members of our Club Connections programme, powered by Fusion for Business (FFB).

FFB helps support sports clubs on their journey to achieve Net Zero through a range of programmes. Their solutions comprise of a series of debt-free, risk-free, cost, carbon and energy-saving measures.
