HRH The Princess Royal Opens DRFC Clubhouse

DRFC welcomes Royal to open new facility

Representatives from Leys Estate were among members, trustees, funders and supporters of Deeside Rugby Football Club invited to welcome HRH The Princess Royal to the club’s new Clubhouse at Woodend at Crathes on 1st September.

Since moving to Woodend at Crathes from shared facilities in both Aboyne and Banchory 10 years ago, Leys Estate has supported the club in its dream of developing some of the best purpose-built facilities in the north-east through a long-term ground lease and ongoing team sponsorship.

The club now has two full size pitches, two half size pitches and the newly opened Clubhouse with kitchen, toilets and communal area. The second phase of the development project will hopefully see the changing facilities renewed and the possibility of a Strength & Conditioning Unit built in the future, which will be both an asset to the club and the wider community.

The Clubhouse is now ready to welcome teams and supporters when the 2021/2022 season gets underway on Saturday, 4th September!
