Head Coach Andy Roberts on Pre Season

By Warrington RUFC Webmaster

Season 2019/20

After a couple of months of rest and recuperation, the senior squad get back to work this week as they start their pre-season training.

Sessions will be at Bridgewater High School (Upper Site) and will predominantly be on Tuesday and Thursdays evenings although this is subject to change dependent on school events.

Contact Andy Roberts for more details.

Andy is delighted that all but one of last years squad are intact and is expecting to have the services of the excellent colts side from last year which will significantly boost the senior squad. After finishing so well in the 2nd team league last year, Andy also expects to see some of last years 2nd team Squad transition into 1st team rugby and competition for places will be healthy.

Nathan Beesley has departed for Lymm however Andy is confident of bringing a few key signings on board as we prepare for what will yet again be a very competitive North One West League.

The coaching team remains the same with Andy continuing in his role as Head Coach. JC will continue to lead the pack and the club are delighted to welcome Keith Wardley on board as he moves from playing into a coaching role. Fiona Kellett continues to provide our medical support amongst a number of other roles and Josh Downes will once again captain the 1st team having done a sterling job last year.

Shaun McDermott and Craig Byrne will look to build on the success of last year as they continue in their roles as 2nd team coach and captain.

After last years successes, the club will once again run a 3rd team/social team and we look forward to seeing a number of ex-players return to play in this great side!

Andy has put together a full programme of pre-season fixtures with a number of challenging tests and plenty of opportunities for players to impress before the opening weekend of league fixtures.
