Pre-season training details

11 months ago By Doug Watters

Join us from July 1.

“the club is renowned for it's warm welcome, and you'll be sure to receive one.”

Pre-season training commences on Saturday July 1 at 11am, and we'll be welcoming players old and new along for a (fairly) gentle start. Returning players, you'll want to get yourself along and back into the flow as early as possible as we look toward successful seasons for our 1st, 2nd and Social XVs. And a special plea to prospective new players, to get along too - whether you've recently moved to the area, are looking for a change of club, haven't played in a long time, or indeed - have never played, the club is renowned for it's warm welcome, and you'll be sure to receive one.

For those who would like to dip the toe before the real stuff begins/break themselves back in gently before the 1st official session, we'll be playing touch at Leith Links on Thursday 15th, Thursday 22nd and Thursday 29th July at 6:45pm.
