This season 2017-18 sees the club have a Colts team again with a new set up and new sponsor!
The squad is now a mix of the Under 16;17 & 18 players. This goes along with the RFU regaulations allowing under 16 players to play alongside the other older age groups. The teams will fufil their own fixtures with the U16players being given an opporunity to play up in some of the U17 league fixtures. All players will be assessed and have all relevant paperwork in place to allow them to play.
The Colts now play their matches on Sunday afternoons, this was decided by the RFU and County as Colts were finding it more difficult to play on Saturdays due to lack of pitches at clubs. The squad will be training on Thursday nights, initially from this week at Mortimer School 7.00pm and from mid-Septemeber at Westoe RFC 6.30pm.
The club have now put in place a new coaching team headed by Ian Etchells alongside David Wilson (Newcastle Falcons), Ian Booth and Andrew Fox with help from Senior players and other guest coaches.
The club would like to thank Ray, Stew and Fred who have managed the Colts for the last few seasons but who are unable to continue with the squad due to commitments on Sundays.
The Under 17 Colts have also a new sponsor this season. We would like to thank Geoff Moore, who is an ex Westoe player and West Nauticalfor their support for the future stars of the club.
