The Yorkshire Cup Winning Squad 2016/17.
On behalf of our Coaches; Nick Green and his assistants Joe Firth, Will Smith, Paul Farrar and Karl Scarth, I welcome you to Morley Rugby Club's Under 16/U17/U18's.
We currently run a combined U16 (Year 11) and U17/18 (Post 16) rugby team and have fixtures, festivals and training planned through to May 2018.
We play in The Yorkshire RFU Colts' Leagues, Our league is an U16/U17/18 League playing teams of similar ages and ability around West and Central Yorkshire.
Our aim each season as a club, as a team and as coaches is to compete at the highest level possible within our age groups. Our long term aim is to continue to develop the players as players and the team as a team, until they are able to play for The 1st XV.
This is what we have said every season for the last 9/10 years and it still holds true.
By creating more of a ‘club’ atmosphere and by offering something distinctive we believe that players will be attracted to Rugby Union and to our club in particular. This applies to the coaching and playing of matches as well as to the whole ‘experience’.
Rugby Clubs are different. They are not Football Teams where there is no ‘club’, no changing rooms, no bar etc. Our Club is different, we are not like some clubs where you play away from The Club, change in your car, arrive late and leave immediately.
At Morley everybody is welcomed, valued and supported.
If you want to get involved contact any of the coaches or come down to Scatcherd Lane on a Training Night and join in, you're always welcome.
Training begins at 18:00 with fitness and coaching drills, we then run add 'contact' and apply what we have worked on into a game situation.
