Merlins fly to new roost.
From the 2013 season the Sussex Merlins will be based at Brighton Blues Rugby Club. After 3 fantastic years at Hove RFC the Merlins have agreed a
partnership with Brighton for at least the next 5 years to base their activity at Waterhall.
Chairman Nick Weston – the partnership with Brighton is a significant step forward for the Merlins. Waterhall has fantastic facilities including an all weather pitch, which for the last 2 years we have been going out to the university to use such a facility. To have this at our home club is fantastic and unrivaled in amateur sport. The Hove club have been really good to us but with work set to take place on the main pitch next summer and a lot of our juniors coming from Brighton this move makes sense. It is my own and the committees hope that this can be a catalyst to great things for the Merlins.See you at Waterhall for pre season training in feb.
