It was only last month that Paviors won the Notts, Lincs & Derby final in a tight match against Dronfield RUFC on a sunny evening in Newark.
However during the off season, like most sporting clubs, they have immediately started to plan for the season ahead.
Arnold‘s Paviors have announced that home grown back-rower Phil Eggleshaw has been appointed as Head Coach.
Phil’s new coaching philosophy will focus on the development of players through enjoyment so that training and playing are fun.
Pat Billam, Paviors Director of Rugby said that Phil was appointed to lead the development of both skills and fitness at the club going forward.
Pat said “I am delighted to have Phil as our newly appointed Head Coach and I am very much looking forward to his valued input at both senior and junior levels”
Phil Eggleshaw will be joined by last seasons Attack Coach & Academy Coach Jonty Green, now taking on the role of Assistant Coach for the 23/24 season.
Jonty has been a member of the first XV since 2010, playing Scrum-Half for the majority of this time with highlights including the promotion season of 2018/19 and winning the NLD cup on numerous occasions, most recently this season just gone, as well as representing NLD Seniors.
Last year Jonty was Head Coach of a very successful academy team winning the NLD plate as well as being the highest ranked team in the region for the National Cup, making it through to the third round of the National Cup (final 32 in the country).
Paviors Rugby Club play at Burntstump Hill, Arnold, NG5 8PQ and the club runs over twenty teams.
New players are always welcome – girls, boys, men & women, there is a team for all.
