Cannon, I think you mean Rams. They have changed their name. By the way, what are they now calling their ladies team?


So they like Bristol have gone down the banal pointless rebranding route that throws away the heritage of their club in the hope that they may get more sponsor money because their name is shorter or more "catchy"?


My money is that every opposition will say they are playing Redingensians, whatever the new name!


I dunno, readingensians was always a mouthful -I like the chance to Rams?

Regarding the Redingensians/Rams debate......well not  debate really, just criticism of the name change.

I would personally, come down much in favour of the change.  If I was the Rams marketing manager, I would be massively enamoured by the improved opportunity this would give me to market to an audience outside of Reading.

Clearly, this is not an issue if, as a club, your ambition is to play at level 4 or lower but, if like Rams, you aspire to move higher, then marketing moves of this sort are to be applauded IMO.   Well done to them but they must appreciate, that they might now be replacing Chinnor in the eyes of the green eyed monsters on our forum.
Anything they achieve this year will just be down to money Ouch  Me ??  Yes I see good levels of finance and sponsorship, but it has been built over several years.....an impressive progression.
I suspect that they may be recruiting a few backs Wink
Of course I hope my lot stuff 'em home and away, but it is not likely.
