CLEVE RFC would like to welcome home Nathan Huntley. 

Nathan played mini and junior rugby then over 200 first team games for Cleve. 

It's great to have him back at the club in his new role as head coach, and we are looking forward to the new season.

Nathan said: "I've played for Cleve for 28 years and am honoured to be appointed head coach.

"I understand what it means to pull the shirt on and represent the badge.

"I'm really excited to get started and put my own stamp on things.

"I want to introduce an exciting style of rugby that everyone understands and enjoys, creating an environment that both players and supporters want to be a part of."

Our senior players start back for pre-season training on July 5, and anyone interested is very welcome to come along.

This season we also have colts rugby for under-17s and 18s, with Simon Clark and James Irvin leading the coaching. 

Cleve's first-team season in the Counties 1 Tribute Western North division kicks off with two home fixtures in September, against Cinderford II on the 3rd and Old Bristolians on the 10th.
