Our National Division One campaign continues at the Twickenham Stoop tomorrow afternoon (Saturday 22nd October) when we face Exeter in round seven, kick-off 3.00pm.
Pre-match sales indicate we can expect our biggest crowd of the season so far, though there are still tickets available for this match, which can be purchased from the ticket office on 020 8410 6000 or online by clicking here. Alternatively, tickets can also be purchased at the ground on the day, either from the ticket office (located in the south-east corner of the stadium by Gate 3) or from the turnstiles, which will both open at 12.00pm.
Please note that we will be having a minute silence just before kick-off following the tragic events of last weekend and the death of three year-old Jake Oliver; the son of Andy Lee, Managing Director of our sister company Sportingclass, and his partner Polly Wiseman, Administrator Manager of Quins nominated charity the Richard Langhorn Trust.
Andy and Polly are well known to many at Quins, indeed I was a team-mate of Andy's during my time at Saracens, when Mark Evans was head coach. It is upon the request of the Quins players that we will be having a minute silence in memory of Jake.
With landscaping behind the south stand still to be completed, car parking arrangements will be the same as they were for the opening two home games. Car parking on-site will be limited to corporate hospitality guests, debenture holders and corporate gold season ticket holders. However, we can only offer this facility on a first come, first serve basis and only up until 45 minutes before kick-off.
All other season ticket holders who have a valid car parking pass, please note that parking will be available in the Rosebine Car Park just off the A316, past the Stoop. The Rosebine Car Park will also be open to the general public at a cost of £5 per car.
One again, neither the Greene King marquee or the Mighty Quins Village will be open tomorrow, but both will be up and running for the match against the Cornish Pirates next month (Sunday 20th November). However, for our junior fans tomorrow there will be three bouncy castles, all located in the south-west corner of the stadium.
With Harlequin Amateurs playing Old Millhillians straight after our game with Exeter, we would ask all supporters to refrain from coming onto the pitch after the match in order for the Amateurs to kick-off on time. Also after the main game, fans favourites The Melody Fakers will be the live band in the Kings Bar, starting at 5.15pm.
Community activity this Saturday sees the second round of matches in this seasons Richmond and Twickenham Times Curtain Raiser Cup, which will take place on the main pitch and Craneford Way pitches from 11.00am.
