Bognor RFC Academy 2019/20 began in earnest this Sunday
Bognor RFC Academy 2019/20 began in earnest on a Sunday as 56 players and eight coaches attended the initial assessment day.
Programme coordinators Tom Spurle, Doug Millen and Rob Outen, supported by a large coaching team, put the players through assessment drills focussing on key skills before a 60 minute trial match.
The 2019/20 Academy season begins at the end of August with a four day training camp at the prestigious Kelly College in Devon and ends in April with matches against Winchester at Allianz Park, home of Saracens, with the end of year awards dinner in the players lounge.
The Academy will run two teams in the Hampshire leagues as well as entering the Sussex colts and National Colts cup competitions. With eight county players in the squad and a wealth of talent it promises to be an exciting and successful season.
Bognor RFC Academy is open to all year 12 and 13 players in September and new players are welcome - contact through the club website or social media.
The players are in action at Hampshire Avenue next Sunday as the under 16’s take on Fareham Heathens ahead of their Hampshire cup final - 11 am KO while the under 17s host Tottonians Colts. 1pm KO.
