Wisbech Rugby Club hoping to attract fresh youth talent

WISBECH Rugby Club are looking for children to join their youth teams as they hope to continue last season’s successes.

More than 140 youngsters from Wisbech and the surrounding villages turned out for the club’s eight mini-teams last season and enjoyed a trip to Premier League and European Champions Leicester Tigers for a training session and pre-match pitch walk.

The Under-9s side came runners-up in last year’s Cambridgeshire Cup final and the club are keen to continue their policy of developing talented young players in the area.

Chris Finlay, from Wisbech Rugby Club, said: “The great thing about rugby is that it is a team sport and suits kids of all shapes and sizes because there is a position to suit everyone in a rugby team.

“What we want most is commitment and determination as rugby is a contact sport and you need to be willing to get stuck in.

“There is also the social side of rugby with players making new friends and joining in with the club’s great social events we organise.”

The club’s youth set-up caters for seven to 17 year olds and there is no need to be an experienced player to get involved.
