Saracens have introduced a new and easier way for you to order tickets but still benefiting Pinner Rugby Club via the Cashback scheme!
A number of people have asked over the last couple of weeks if we are still selling Saracens Tickets this season. The answer is YES, however Saracens have changed their administration system which does make my life easier. For all games at Vicarage Road and the new stadium at Allianz Park Saracens are offering Pinner Rugby Club “Cashback “ £5 for every Adult and £2 for every Under 16’s Ticket purchased.
Please note the cash back offer is not available for the Saracens v Northampton Saints fixture at Stadium MK on 30th December 2012.
To purchase tickets you must enter the Saracens website using the designated link:
Users will need to register /create an account if you have not purchased from Saracens before., for each subsequent purchases you will simply follow the clubs URL and login again. Users must then follow on screen instructions and to book their tickets. Please note that your Tickets will be sent via post to you direct.
If you want to sit in the same area as your friends be sure to specify the stand and block you are looking to go for as this process will let the individual choose any seat(s) within the stadium.
I would encourage everyone to use the link every time you purchase a ticket to benefit from the club CashBack scheme. Cashback is a great way for Pinner Rugby Club to make money towards purchasing new equipment and other projects to benefit our children

Some of the experiences that young players have had when Saracens RFC are involved:
Despite inclement weather, the rain did try and spoil the days activities, although judging by the smiling faces it didn’t succeed. Players were greeted by four Saracens coaches upon entry into the clubhouse, forms filled in, introductions made then straight out onto the playing fields. Players were split into different groups depending on age and experience and rotated around all of the coaches, each developing different skills whilst having great fun.
Today the players went through a number of drills, games and skill development:
Morning and afternoon sessions
Development through game play
Individual skills & techniques
Speed, Agility and Quickness
Tackling / Tagging Techniques
It was definitely a full on session in the morning and the orange slices offered went down a storm (even though some said they didn’t do oranges!)
Lunch was eagerly taken by all, a great spread was laid on – Spaghetti/pasta bolognese - french bread, hot tomato soup, salad – with carrot, cucumber pepper sticks, yogurts, assorted fruit, orange/blackcurrant squash.
After a briefing session led by the coaches it was back out again for the afternoon session. At the end of the day, coaches gathered all the players for a feedback question and answer session and presented the player of the day award.
What a great start to this Rugby Camp, really looking forward to tomorrow
A much better day on Friday – clear blue skies and no hint of rain
On Friday, the coaches built upon a lot of the skills they had introduced the day before; concentrating on
Breakdown Management (Rucking, Leaching, and Ball presentation progressions)
Forwards / Backs Split
The coaches commented on how much more concentration the players had on Friday and noted that all had made excellent progress
The lunch of cheeseburgers was a hit, some even asking and getting seconds!
Of course, we celebrated the birthdays of Jameel and Sam in usual Pinner style; get it down you Zulu Warrior!!
The afternoon session had players developing more specific skills to their playing positions (older groups) whilst the Tag players whizzed around the field with Tag grabbing everywhere.
This was a great 2 day camp and hopefully Pinner RFC will host another Saracens Rugby Camp in the future
Sooopa Sarries Sunday – Pinner RFC beyond pitch-side!
After a disappointing weekend of International Rugby at the World Cup; apart of course the Welsh – llon.gyfarchion , ddeisyfwn ‘ch bydew i mewn ‘r semi finals it was up to Pinner Mini and Youth Sections to brighten up the day!
After a terrific morning of training and friendly matches with a friends from Hackney Bulls many of the players and parents jumped into their cars, put on their clean Pinner tops and headed off to Vicarage Road for the Aviva Premiership match against Newcastle Falcons
Through the Saracens club Partnership program we had secured a number of tickets which allowed children to go free and for reduced prices for adults.
Apart from watching live Premiership rugby, what else caused this exodus?
Well, a great day was install for the players; representing Pinner Youth, Mini Section and players from the Little Rugby Academy were guest of Saracens and formed the Guard of Honour for both the teams as they exploded onto the pitch, being that close up we saw what giants these rugby players were and how they were focused on the game in hand, even so, one player managed to get his hair ruffled by a passing Saracens player!
During the half time interval Pinner Under 7s and Under 8s were invited to play on the pitch, demonstrating their skills during a TAG rugby game, Pinner having the honour of being the only club to be represented and enjoyed every minute running around on the quality pitch, scoring tries and taking Tags. Coaches Andy Nash and Richard Evans were extremely proud of the display you put on, their beaming smiles being broadcasted on the big screen, cheered on by over 5,000 home supporters (including a few Pinner senior members doted around the ground)
What a great experience, a great day and one that will hopefully remain in the memory of all the young players who attended.
Saracens won, by the way!
Here’s (a lot) of photographs from the day, enjoy
Oh by the way, I was interviewed by ESPN/Sky Sports News before the game, if anyone has seen it or recorded game firstly, did I look fat on the telly! and secondly, is there a copy of it I can have a butchers at? (cheers Spud)
A big thank you to Steve and Richard at Saracens and a special thank you to Jo Talbot for organising everything today
When ‘Sarrie’ met Pinner Mini and Youth Sections
Sunday 25th September saw the Aviva Trophy make its second appearance around Pinner Players within a week. To protect and also to greet was the Saracens RFC mascot ‘Sarrie’ who proved to be a popular ‘extra’ during the training session!

Pinner RFC shine @Pinner Show with Saracens RFC and Aviva Trophy
First time out at Pinner Show – a great success
Pinner Rugby Club, with Club Partners Saracens RFC, took part in the Pinner Village Show organised by the Rotary Club of Pinner, for the first time this weekend.
The Village Show was, once again a great success – fun for all the families who ventured into the park. It contained many local charity and craft stalls, entertainments and of course Pinner Rugby Club.
Local residents and visitors from further afield came in good numbers throughout the day, despite the intermittent rain showers. The Kiddies Fun Fair, the miniature steam train and the many local charity stalls were in attendance at the Rotary Club of Pinner’s Pinner Village Show. The Merry-Downers Morris Dancers, the Harrow Concert Band and the Tug of War events kept the crowds well and truly entertained
Many Pinner Rugby Club members braved mixed weather to raise awareness of our club and hopefully gained some new players.
The day didn’t get off to a great start when Minis Chairman Spud had great difficulties putting up the club tent (a new club gazebo is on the way thankfully!) failing to recognise that you can’t put it up inside out! After a succession of Rotary Club members tried to aid the suffering Spud, former Mini’s Chairman Steve George was called into action and promptly alleviated a minor disaster.
At 10.15 the Aviva Trophy arrived on our stand along with Saracens young star Geoffrey Sella (son of French international Phillipe Sella) ready to meet and greet the local community and have their photograph taken with both Geoffrey and the trophy. As you can see, Pinner members were very keen to get their hands on the trophy and Geoffrey was fantastic throughout the day, signing autographs, showing off his skills and playing demonstration rugby – as he is currently injured this had to be limited although witnesses said that he was awesome despite a light slip resulting in getting covered in mud – a few eagle eyed passer byes saw him take his top off and remarked that suddenly they liked rugby (you can follow Geoffrey on twitter – @geof_sella)
Throughout the day, players from all levels of the club came down to support our publicity drive, seniors from the first team, club captain Reza Sibilant got his hands on the trophy with a beaming smile; the youth under 15s were out in force along with manager Brad Seiler, under 7s & 8s coach Andy Nash, a Saracens fan, also got ‘up and close’ with the silverware. Players from all squads were in presence and worked tirelessly in promoting our club; as a result many new faces were seen at training during Sunday morning, great work.
Then for something different: Pinner entered the tug of war competition; firstly testing themselves against each other then taking on all-comers, including the Morris Dancers. All succumbed to the brilliant effort by Pinner – out-right winners, well done.
The day proved to be a great success, many made their way to the club to watch some fantastic rugby in the form of the 1st XV versus Old Merchant Taylors and the Pelicans first outing of the new season versus Uxbridge 2nds (match reports and photographs on website)
Pinner Rugby Club is a club Partner of Saracens RFC and this has allowed us to bring them down to the club next Sunday 25th September for a morning of ‘Super Sarries Sunday’; where they will be once again bringing the Aviva Trophy, players, coaches and ‘Sarrie’ the mascot. It will be a fantastic opportunity to have your photograph taken with the above and be part of the Saracens Pixel wall. All welcome and please bring down your friends. The under 15s will also be playing a pre league friendly match versus Fullarians RFC (also a Saracens Club Partner).
The raffle proved to be a great success, a big thank you to Saracens again for supplying the first prize. The draw was made after training on Sunday – the winners were:
3rd Prize: a rugby ball – Les Chaffe
2nd Prize: Signed rugby ball by Austin Healey – Monty Meghjee
1st Prize: 10 match tickets for Saracens home fixture at Wembley – Max Alexander
Congratulations to them, contact will be made within the next couple of days an the first prize will be presented during ‘Super Sarries Sunday’
Pinner Rugby Club along with club partner Saracens RFC provided a unique experience at the rugby club this Sunday. With the training pitches filled with players from all age groups and a pre league friendly Under 15s fixture against Fullarians RFC a morning named ‘Super Sarries Sunday’ kicked off. Placed just outside of the Pinner clubhouse entrance was the Aviva Trophy sparkling in the sunshine, players and parents were greeted by Saracens mascot ‘Sarrie’ as they prepared for a morning of rugby.
It was be a fantastic opportunity to have their photograph taken with the trophy and of course Sarrie, all squads took it in turns through the morning and after training finished many of the player of the week winners muscled up to Sarrie for a memorable photo opportunity.
