Fill Your Boots is the grassroots rugby player exchange which has been running successfully for almost two years. Whether you are a rugby club in need of extra bodies to ensure your match takes place, or a player looking for a run-out, we can help you find a game. We have over 300 rugby clubs from all over Britain who use us regularly. 2017 saw FYB nominated for the England Rugby Mitsubishi Volunteer of the Year awards.
Here is how the idea came about….
Racal Decca are “the world’s smallest club” and we struggle to field a XV each week. Racal Decca formed alliances with other clubs including Streatham Croydon to share players if one of our games were cancelled each week. It was highly successful, more games were being fulfilled, meaning more games for everyone involved.
It got me thinking that this could be successful if more clubs like Racal Decca had a player exchange, where clubs that needed extra bodies and players that needed game time could go to find each other.
The goal is simple, to make more games happen.
Some weeks we will fail, some weeks we will succeed, but rest assured FYB will work as hard as possible to Make Games Happen.
