not the location the route mapping which sends you through the new estate and then through the fence rather than along the road and up the access track - it was never a route to the club ever as previously it was a commercial plant nursery

Google allow anyone to make amendments to Google Maps - I'm assuming that's what you were using. If you find anything where the location pin is in the wrong place it can be amended 👍

Cheers, sounds a great facility !

We only have inside bars, all under the Dome. 

Food is generally steak pie, with a pea jus or pork scratching's, again under the Dome served in the presidents suit (Which doubles up as the bar, chairman's suit, changing rooms, showers and kit shop )

Panoramic views over Yorkshire and Derbyshire (When the Dome is opened) 

Big Eddie was not happy on his last visit .... when the Dome is closed we cannot use the open fire for obvious reasons Cry

Cant wait for some rugby Saturday !!!!!! Dome open all being well !

TDTwo,

My last visit to Dore Moor was exceptional fun with great hospitality, a brilliant lunch, a very competitive game and very good company. I am very much looking forward to coming back this year. I don't think the Caldy coach left until about 7 p.m. which gave plenty of drinking time as it was a mid winter fixture with a 2 o'clock kick off.

Some of the Caldy supporters arrived as if dressed for an autumn stroll around the Cote D' Azur...........they soon discovered during winter there can sometimes be a bit of a nip in the air in the environs of Dore Moor which can be quite noticeable if there is a breeze blowing. I think one Caldy supporter somewhat regretted not bringing a pullover or a long sleeved cardigan to ward off the chill. 

This year I must remind him to think on and also bring an anorak or a cagoule to avoid getting damp from Dore Moor's  fine mist which can be persistent.

Caldy have their second 1st xv warm up fixture tonight against Welsh Premiership Side RGC 1404. The match is being played at Ruthin rugby club.

Yesterday a Caldy A side which was Caldy's 2nd xv squad took on Birkenhead Park under lights at Upper Park. Park just edged very competitive game 28-24. The match was refereed by Premiership referee Ian Tempest.

Caldy's young squad of 25 players played with intensity and pace throughout against a much more experienced and physically bigger Birkenhead Park squad. After 10 minutes I thought Caldy's faster game was going to see the Park side struggle but they lasted the match admirably scoring through driving mauls and robust direct play.

Caldy's game plan was surely to go wide and let their pace rack up the scores but the young squad were happy to mix it up front as well which was encouraging but slightly foolhardy against such an experienced forward orientated team.

It was pleasing to see the Caldy scrum hold up well against Park and the young squad showed that they are more than capable of holding their own at that level.

Eddie - good luck against the Gogs tonight. Be thankful you won't have to endure their announcer, gets a little upset when the opposition fans give their verbal encouragement 😉

Thanks for the tips re Taunton everyone. No harm in a bit of give in the match for this kind of fixture. Forecast is for decent weather.

Expect 2 coaches of oggy munchers tomorrow plus some independents as well. 

Hope your team is as good as your facilities - we need you guys to get promoted and give us a derby within 100 miles/easy driving time. Halliford can tell you that at one stage, they were our "local" rivals in Nat 1 before Cinderford took over...
Come cheer up, my lads - 'tis to glory we steer!

Would Rams be your nearest away fixture or is it still Cinderford.

Deva I do not think the announcer will be too upset tonight as not many Caldy supporters are going to Ruthin for a preseason game and have to pay £10 entry fee!!

These moans have been going on for years, think about when the grass pitches are rock hard in September or from being frozen, nobody complains then !

I think the 3G/4G debate will carry on, I think knowing the surface I played on was the same pretty much week in week out would be a relief, I have seen some terrible pitches over the years at this level and above, lumpy bumpy, coloured mud, boggy areas the list goes on. 

A few little marks can happen for the removal of sub standard pitches !

Good performance by Caldy away at RGC eventually lost 29-26 with RGC scoring in the last 10 minutes after Caldy were leading 26-17 midway into the second half they put on all their subs and the youngsters  took on the RGC pack . After going behind they pressured the RGC line for the last 5 minutes and were unlucky not to score. It was a good result against a team which is one of the top premier clubs in Wales.

OK if it's a decent opposition Level1 or 2, maybe 3 but a bit steep otherwise.

I watched Scarlets vs Bath at RGC a few years back, 5 quid.

Worth the entrance fee just to shout against the partisan crowd.

Good result for Hinckley too. Building quite nicely.
I'm quite impressed with their increased presence around the town lately too (although I hope they're not going to all be piling into the new main shirt sponsors, the tiny Elbow Room pub, as there won't be enough room for me and the mutt!
Good club, and getting better.

I watched Bath v Scarlets a few years ago at the Clifton ground, they charged £5 and it was good value especially the Doom Bar beer and the singing by the supporters in the clubhouse after the match. Old school!
