U7s Season Comments: Martin

Thank-you for your present at the presentation

I have really enjoyed coaching your kids this last season and cannot believe how far we have progressed from some being unable to catch/pass a rugby ball to some of the free-flowing rugby we have seen in the latter part of the season. I am really looking forward to next season and beyond , to hopefully turn your kids into decent rugby players, with respect for the game, team-mates and officials ( and opposition I suppose!!)

As Archie (Chairman of the Junior Section) said in his speech yesterday – your kids will form life-long friendships at Eccles – as I have done in my 25 year playing career – with team-mates and opponents that they face year after year, so please continue to support US the now under 8s and watch your children develop into great young adults and rugby players, hopefully, under our (coaches) guidance.

Yesterday was a fantastic presentation day seeing all the players receive their plaudits and awards with relative humility..!!!

Once again- it has been a fantastic challenge for me and Darren and I look forward to seeing as many of the kids at the start of next seasons pre-season. We will be looking towards contact based training (tackle bags / pads) in preparation for the real thing the following year….!!


Cheers and have a great summer….!!!!!
