THREE Midlands clubs were presented with their RFU Whole Club Seal of Approval at Englands RBS 6 Nations Championship match against Scotland at Twickenham Stadium last Sunday.

Burton, Harbury and Ampthill were recognised for attaining the high standards required for Whole Club Seal of Approval status and presented with their awards by RFU Senior Vice-President Willie Wildash.

Burton were represented by their president John Lowe and David Gill, Harbury by Ian Holroyd and David Andrews and Ampthill by treasurer Bill Warfield and committee member Jake Bishop.

The RFU Seal of Approval accreditation recognises the effort and achievement of volunteers in reaching the standard required in the development of rugby across the whole club, and to plan for the long term sustainability of the club and rugby union.

The Whole Club Seal of Approval accreditation was introduced in 2009 as a method of ensuring high quality provision of rugby in clubs. It builds on the established procedures of Mini and Youth Seal of Approval.

Clubs are assessed by the RFU and must demonstrate evidence of good practice in areas such as club management, player development and recruitment, child protection, sports equity, coaching, refereeing and volunteering.
