Our gates may be locked but there's plenty to keep us entertained and connected this month.

Firstly, we’re encouraging all members, family and friends, to take advantage of a new RFU Amazon partnership offer that lets you watch England Rugby for free in the Autumn Nations Cup, while also creating much needed revenue for the club.

The Quilter Internationals kick off this weekend and will be streamed online via Amazon Prime. To help grassroots clubs generate income, Amazon have worked with the RFU to open up registration for clubs to become Amazon Associates.

This means the club will receive £3 for every member of our community who signs up to Amazon on a FREE ONE MONTH TRAIL through our club’s unique Associates link below.

PLEASE USE THIS UNIQUE LINK https://amzn.to/3poDIZH  to sign up for your free one-month trial, otherwise the club won’t benefit from your subscription.

There is no expectation for members to stay on Prime past the trial period. Eccles RFC will make £3 from each individual sign-up via the unique link, regardless of whether the member stays on past the trial period or not.

Every little helps in these challenging times, so please share this message and our unique URL link with your friends, colleagues and neighbours who are all welcome to sign up and take advantage of the offer!

Secondly, for those who enjoy the clubhouse baroom banter the 'Eccles RFC Autumn Nations Cup Match Predictor' League is now live!

  1. Download the MatchPint free app and sign up matchpint.co.uk/app
  2. Select 'Guinness Pint Predictor'
  3. Select 'Leagues' and '+join'
