Training all set to restart

MATLOCK RFC’s lengthy season may only have ended last weekend, with their NLD Shield triumph, but thoughts are already turning to the 2011-2012 Midlands One East campaign.

The pre-season training schedule will start at Cromford Meadows on Tuesday, May 22.

Initially, Tuesdays will be for fitness and gym work and Thursdays for touch rugby and ball skills.

The intensity will build as the squad progresses through the summer.

Initial sessions will start at 7.30pm prompt.

All senior squad players should be looking to improve further on fitness and strength levels achieved last season.

Last season’s under 17s and under 18s squads are also welcome to come and get involved with the senior squad.

Whether you are hoping to go to university/college or not, the club hopes that you wish to remain playing for Matlock.

Any new players who are interested in joining the club are also welcome to come along.

For players still carrying an injury from last season, the club physio will be available to provide some treatment on the Tuesday nights from 6.45pm.
