Searching For Rugby Players - 18+
Chris Dean (Deputy CC) would be most grateful if you could help identify rugby players across the County for a GLSW team to play the Northampton Old Scouts RFC in a friendly match later this season.
Northampton Old Scouts RFC was formed in 1926 by a group of Rover Scouts who were chatting around the campfire at Castle Ashby near Northampton. Since then the club has gone from strength to strength, and runs 5 senior sides each Saturday. It is anticipated that we will play a club XV on a Sunday afternoon at their ground.
Initially, we are looking to form a squad of 25 players aged 18 and over, but if there is also interest from the Explorer Scout section a second squad of 25 aged 16 to 18 to play their under 17's or under 18's.
We will be arranging coaching from qualified coaches plus hopefully some 'intervention' from one or two rugby celebrities.
Already your very own Sam Allan has expressed an interest in playing, and also Ian Tanner who plays regularly for KCS Old Boys in London SW. There must be more players or would-be players out there, please help find them.
I look forward to receiving some responses, and if you have any suggestions please also let me know. Chris Dean
