Though it’s the close-season, there has been plenty going on at Arnold’s Paviors Rugby Club.
Dee McKenzie , one of the club’s Under 18’s Women’s Squad has been selected to attend the England Under 18’s training camp at Wellington College, this month.
Club President Neil Kendrick told us that “The club is extremely proud of Dee’s achievements – she sets an amazing example to others in the club and the club is proud of her achievements.”
But its not just Dee making waves at the top level as Neil added “Four of our youngsters attended the Welsh Exiles Training Camp ( eligibility through Welsh parentage/grand parentage) recently at Trent College : Danny Mountain, Josh Kirwan-Thomas and Owen Evans were involved in the under 15 training, while Evan Griffiths was with the Under 13’s.”
Only a couple of months after Paviors won the Notts, Lincs & Derby final in a tight match against Dronfield RUFC on a sunny evening in Newark preparations are in full-swing for the new season.
Pre-season training is already in progress on Tuesday’s and Thursdays under the supervision of new first team Coaches: Phil Marshall and Jonty Green.
The first game of the season sees Paviors renewing, after several seasons’ absence, contests between the Arnold outfit and local rivals Mellish, who will make the short journey to Burntstump.
Prior to this much looked forward encounter there are home pre-season friendlies against Doncaster on Saturday August 18 kick off 3pm and on Thursday August 24 against Tuxford kick-off, 6.30 pm.
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.
