Blackadder and Garvey thank you for your loyal support

8 June 2018

Director of Rugby Todd Blackadder and Club captain Matt Garvey would like to thank all the supporters who have already renewed their season tickets ahead of the 2018/19 season.

There is much to be excited about ahead of the new season. A new era begins with Gallagher replacing Aviva as partners of the Premiership, alongside the brand new Premiership Rugby Cup competition. The Heineken Champions Cup also returns to the Rec in October, bringing the best Europe has to offer to the West Country.

There will also be a bunch of new faces donning the Blue, Black and White for the first time this season, such as Wales international Jamie Roberts and England U20 hotshot Joe Cokanasiga. 

Director of Rugby Todd Blackadder is now excited for the season to get underway.

“We’ve built a really good squad with some really good depth. The young players coming up through the Academy experienced the Anglo-Welsh, Premiership and Champions Cup rugby for the first time last year and that will put them in good stead this season. We’ve also recruited really well over the summer with the signings of the new players and Girvan Dempsey.

“We are now well and truly set up to have a fantastic campaign and do something quite special this coming season.”

Club captain Matt Garvey added: “When some of our boys, such as Sam (Underhill) and Roko (Semesa Rokoduguni) recover from injury they will be like new players coming in and that will lift the squad. We can then push on, have a good pre-season and hit the new season running.”

“You can’t understate the importance of the supporters and what they bring. It’s humbling to see them travel up and down the country and support us.” 

With so much to look forward to, there really is no better time to renew your season ticket with us, and so far we have seen an overwhelming response from our supporters. On the first day of launch we saw double the amount of renewals as we did this time last year.
