This squad is into its second year of playing together, we used the 2017/18 season to get settled into our new surroundings at The Den, our main objectives were to enjoy our rugby, develop our skills and most importantly to still be together at the end of the season. Thanks to the excellent support of Peterborough Lions we had a good season at our new home and played some very competitive rugby.
Under 14’s Rules of Play
Moving up to the Under 14 age group and joining the Lions Academy we will see the further development of our players to becoming Lions 1st XV players of the future, RFU Under 14s Rules of Play set out below are mandatory for clubs; -

Come and Join Us
Everyone is welcome, if you are School Year 9 and played before either at school or are considering switching club, or you maybe trying rugby for the first time come and give us a go. I am supported by 3 excellent coaches Rob, Phil & Dan, we train every Tuesday and as you can see from our fixture list we have 21 competitive fixtures on Sunday mornings with local teams, we will also be hosting our own Festival on 24th March. I think we have a terrific atmosphere in the squad helped by a tremendous group of very supportive parents who turn out in all weathers to support the lads.
The feel-good factor following Lions 1st XV promotion to National League Two has filtered down to the Academy, we have doubled our playing squad for this coming (2018/2019) season so plenty to be optimistic about.
It remains for me, on behalf of the players, coaches and parents to thank Lions for their continued support of our lads, we all have very good reason to be excited about the coming season.
