MATCH PREVIEW: Yardley & District (A)

By Bobby Bridge, 19th Aug 2011

All players are asked to meet at 12.45 at the clubhouse before journeying over to Yardley at 1pm.
The match will be split into four, twenty minute spells giving both head coaches the opportunity to give all players a run out.
Yardley play their rugby at Midlands 3 West North with the likes of Wolverhampton, Veseyans and Handsworth.
On the eve of the match, head coach Lee Maddison paid tribute to those who have helped him during the club’s gruelling pre-season schedule.
He said: “I'm loving my first senior coaching role but to be fair the lads have made it very easy for me to adjust from just a player to a player coach role.
“Phil Groves (forward coach) has had a big input on pre-season and his experience as a coach will pay dividends with all our forwards at the club.
I’d also like thank Martin Harrison for his time in helping me setup my sessions and his help with scrimmaging.”
This pre-season fixture was arranged after the annual end of season match in memory of Brunty could not be played due to fixture pile ups suffered by both teams.
The usual ceremonies will not be taking place, as these were upheld in a match played among Manor Park’s players instead at the end of last season.
But there is plenty of goodwill among the two sides, so should be a cracking game of rugby!
Address for Yardley; 1 Colehall Lane, Birmingham, West Midlands, B34 6HE.
