Friends Of Cooke

Cooke RFC is acknowledged as having one of the best rugby complexes in Ulster and indeed Ireland. As well as running successful adult men’s, women’s, mini and more recently, a rejuvenated youth section, we wish to maintain the grounds and clubhouse facilities to the highest standards for the enjoyment of members and our guests.

You may be aware that we introduced the “Friends of Cooke” initiative during last season to raise additional funds and to keep the club financially vibrant. As always, members rallied to the call and we are grateful for the positive response which generated over £5,000 of additional income towards club running costs.

I would again appeal for your support as we progress this project for the 2018-19 season. The cost involved will remain at £250 per year to again include the following benefits:-

(i) Annual RFC sub

(ii) A chance to win one of 16 cash prizes with (an extra) number in the “500 Club”

(iii) Invite to a FoC sponsored pre match Lunch

(iv) Priority access to International tickets (2 max, subject to availability)

(v) Prominent acknowledgement on the “Friends of Cooke” Display Board.
