Player News

July 2nd, 2018 Comments off

Pre-season training started on Thursday 28 June with an impressive turnout of 32 players including several new faces. Head coach Jon Feeley set out a few key principles and then it was down to work with some basic passing drills before Chris Black took the players through a series of shuttle runs to set individual benchmarks for the weeks ahead. A similar number of players were back on Saturday at 8.30 for another 90 minute workout. The energy and enthusiasm in the squad bodes well for the season ahead.

We are delighted to announce the first new signings of the new season: –

Sam Booker – a prop from Keighley looking to step up into National League rugby.
Ben Sowrey – a hooker and former player returning to the club from Newcastle Falcons, having also played for Doncaster, Rotherham and Worcester Warriors.
Chris Walker – former England U20 captain and Yorkshire Carnegie back-row forward who has recently returned from playing in France where he helped Rennes win promotion to Federale 1, the equivalent of National 1.

We expect several more signings to be announced over the next few weeks.

Workforce Day 2018

June 23rd, 2018 Comments off

We would like to extend our thanks to everyone that turned out to help us on this year’s Workforce Day. The majority of the planned jobs were completed. Without your help this would not have been possible. The club and the grounds look very much better after all your hard work.

Our special thanks to Adrian Jones of Height for Hire from Bradford for providing the cherry picker seen here in action

Photographs from the day are now available. Click on Photos near the top of this page then follow the Link to Flickr Album.
