June 25 2019

CLEVE Rugby Club are looking for new players to join their Colts side.


The club, based at the Hayfields in Mangotsfield, is looking for players of all abilities aged 16, 17 or 18 to join the side next season.
Cleve has three senior sides, a thriving minis and junior section, which includes age groups from under 6 to under 18s, and is also working to establish a women's side.
The club is always looking for new players from young beginners to first team seniors to take advantage of the facilities and coaching on offer at the Hayfields.
Director of rugby David Partington said: "Success is measured in many different ways for junior rugby players and we are equally proud of every product of our club.
“In recent years we have had Ryan Davis, Chris Brooker, Redford Pennycook, Chevvy Pennycook, James Phillips, Jack Tovey, Harry Casson, Will Davis and Ryan Roach all go on to sign for professional clubs.
“Our senior squad is heavily populated by players who have started their rugby careers as juniors at the club, and countless other players have gone on to enjoy rugby as members of other teams.
“We are looking to recruit Colts this season and want to be able to fulfil the ambitions of all players.
"We can offer the opportunity to progress to senior rugby, or simply enjoying being part of a team in the here and now.
“Rugby can be a superb sport in the development of young men, through discipline and teamwork, but most importantly we can offer enjoyment within a fantastic facility for 16 and 17 year olds and beyond.
“Cleve are an inclusive and friendly club, and we are always looking for new players and members to join us. Any new player, regardless of background, experience and ability are all very welcome from age 5 and upwards.”
