Great opportunity for some of the lads to ramp up their pre season preparations this weekend at Nth Shields on Friday and Saturday. Those wishing to play on the Friday should let Jack Pellew or Magnus Leask know during the week.
In an effort to prepare the squads, Ed Midcalf (Dame Allans Head of Rugby and Ex Percy Park Head Coach) will take the squads for Saturday through their paces at training on Thursday night. So get along to training and take the opportunity to learn a few things from a very experienced 7's coach.
Undateables - Sean Ramsay (captain) Jez Nash, Darren Kelly, Lewis Chater, Jack Hearn, Ben Wollerton, Daniel Brewer, Sam Bird, Brandon Gilbert, Ben Merrett, Andy Hall, Zach Weatherhead, James Loraine - Magnus Leask (coach)
Unloveables - Shaun Stewart (Captain) George Bambrick, Tom Cox, Sam Warwick, Rich Harrison, Daniel Shuttleworth, David Bowman, Jeff Burke, Tom Clapperton, Henry Wilson, Christian Selkirk, Mark Stewart - Jack Pellew (Manager)
It is hoped that one or two bodies will be added to this squad as the event gets closer.
An interesting opportunity to gauge where we are at with our pre season as well as have a closer look at a few of our senior colts. Brandon Gilbert and David Bowman have been working alongside the first team for the first six sessions and have shown real promise. In addition, it is fantastic personally to see Old Allanians Jack Hearn, James Loraine take the field with two of this years' leavers in Sam Warwick and Daniel Brewer. Sure to be a great occasion and one where I don't have to mind my language in front of them anymore.
Another great step forward in our prep toward improving our league position from last season.
Up the Vos !
