ROSYTH-based rugby club Fife Southern will step up preparations for the new season by hosting their annual open day tomorrow.

The club, who play in the Caledonia Midlands 3 South league, are opening the doors of their Harley Street home and will play a match at 1.30pm against charity side The Clan.

Fife Southern, who have been in Rosyth in their current format since 1999 following the merger of Dalgety Bay RFC and Rosyth and District RFC, are run entirely by volunteers who president Jonathan Pain says have both “the community and rugby at heart”.

As well as the senior side, the club operate midi and mini/micro sections for youngsters in S1 to under-16 and from P1-P7 respectively, and Jonathan said: “Our aim for the open day at Fife Southern is to showcase a family environment where rugby can be played and enjoyed by all ages from six to 60, regardless of gender or ability. We ultimately aim to be recognised as an accessible ‘hub’ in our local and surrounding area and we will strive for excellence not only on the pitch, but also through our coaching, volunteering, involvement with schools and reaching out to the local community.

“Whilst predominantly a rugby club, we see ourselves serving at the heart of our local community, using the game to promote the positive sporting and social values of rugby for all.”

The club's head coach, Kristofer Richards, added: "We have a young squad who play fast, attacking rugby and are exciting to watch.

"This year we are targeting top three in the league and I am confident we have the team to achieve this."

The open day runs from 11am to late and attractions include inflatables, amusements, a funfair, stalls selling a variety of goods including food and gifts, a DJ and an AC/DC tribute band who will perform from 8pm-midnight. There will also be a raffle to win prizes including a signed 2015 Scotland World Cup rugby top, holiday vouchers and passes for attractions including Blair Drummond Safari Park and The Scottish Deer Centre.
