GMS Account Information:

All players and members of a rugby club in the UK need to have an account on the Rugby Football Union (RFU) Game Management System (GMS).

 

You may not realise you have an account on GMS and may not know your login details so the information below will help you set up a new account or access your existing account.

If you have not played rugby before, go to the "I am new to rugby" information below.

If you have previously played rugby then you will already have an account on GMS and will not need to set up a new one.

Go to "Already playing" below

I am new to rugby

If you have NOT played rugby for another club (military or civilian) then it is likely you will not have an account on GMS. In which case the first thing you need to do is set one up.

Create a new GMS account

Follow the instructions at the link below and create an account for yourself, (plus any partner/ spouse who may be joining the club in any way).  It will ask you to select a club, which of course is Amesbury. This attaches you to Amesbury Rugby Club just as a person, but not yet as a paid member or a registered player.

You can either go direct to the GMS login page and take the option to set up a new account or you can go via the support page and follow the instructions.

 

Already playing rugby

If you looking to join Amesbury Rugby Club having already been playing rugby at another club then you will already have an account on the RFU GMS.

You don't need to set up a new account but you will need to log in to your existing account and update your details and register yourself. Instructions on how to update your details

Go direct to the GMS login page and enter your username and password.

If you do not know your user name or password then use the Forgot Password option to reset it. Note: you will need to use the email address used when you last registered for a club. You will receive an email containing your username and the option to reset your password.

Use this opportunity to check and update any information in your records such as address, email, phone number.

Adult - Affiliation to play at Amesbury Rugby Club (Men & Women):

 

There is a regulatory requirement for adult players to be affiliated to a club on GMS.

If you are new to rugby you will need to first set up an account on GMS. See instructions above.


Registration - Step 1:

Download / print and complete the adult player registration form and email a copy to the membership manager.

 

Step 2:

Log in to GMS and access your account if you have one. On the opening account page under "My Organisations" press the + Add button and put in Amesbury to add your details to our club.

 

(While you are there, check your personal details under your name on the banner image to ensure your DoB, addresses and phone numbers are correct. If not, use the edit button to update your details).


The team manager/registrar will wait for your new registration to appear with Amesbury Rugby Club to show and cross-checks the detail on GMS with your form (and correct if needed).

 

Note that the GMS & Registration systems hold the same information automatically. Forenames should be as they were given at birth and “known as box” used for anything different such as Nickname that you may be known as in the club.

 

Amendments to names can ONLY be done in the registration portal by the club/cb/national registrars.

If you have come from another rugby club, login to your GMS account and add Amesbury RFC to your organisations.

In both cases, once you have attached yourself to Amesbury Rugby Club within GMS the Data/Membership officer will take care of everything else.
