After the introduction of two new coaches, the #MightyMaroons have undergone two months of an intense but beneficial pre-season schedule in which Paul Gerrard and Tom Taylor have had plenty of time to work and prepare the players for the long season ahead.
The mid-week hosts are not a side to be underestimated as they look to carry on form from last season successes where they remained undefeated in the Tennent’s East Region League One. Although, falling short in a 21-62 loss to Rockcliff RFC on Saturday, the side will be back up and firing for their first competitive fixture of the season.
Ponteland RFC on the other hand, are looking to put last season’s woes behind them with new coaches and a new outlook as they make the travel up to Berwick RFC in round one of the Northumberland Cup.
Match Location: 11 Derwentwater Terrace, TD15 2QY
