Pre-season training for the 1st XV Senior Squad will begin on Monday 2nd July at 6.45pm at the club. Training will then continue on each Monday, Tuesday and Thursday throughout July and August. Any new players interested in joining the squad for pre-season are asked to contact Gareth Dyer (07814959533) beforehand.
We request that all other teams and squads please do not use the fields for pre-season training until week commencing 30 July (subject to the weather). We have extensively re-seeded the pitches and would like to give the grass the best opportunity to establish itself. Please respect any signs or roped off areas when training starts. Please rotate where you train and consider the damage that can be caused in wet conditions by intense training in one place or by scrummaging.
So far we have confirmed the following pre-season fixtures:-
Thursday 16th August vs. Sale FC (Kick off/Venue TBC)
Saturday 25th August vs. Tynedale (H) (Kick Off TBC – There will be 1st and 2nd XV fixtures against Tynedale on this date)
A further fixture will be confirmed in due course. The league campaigns for both 1st and 2nd XV’s begin on Saturday 1st September with the 1st XV at home to Darlington Mowden Park whilst the 2nd XV travel to rivals Sedgley Park.
