Chargers Driving Forward with Triangle Kia

Triangle Kia of Chesterfield has delivered an early Christmas boost to the North Derbyshire Chargers Rugby League Club with a gift of 60 personalised balls ahead of their 2015 season. The professional match-day standard balls are customised with the logo of Triangle Kia and Chargers RLFC.

Jonathan Hyde of Triangle commented, “We are an established family business in Derbyshire and South Yorkshire and whilst we have been recognised as a leading Kia dealership in the UK, we also place great value on supporting our local community groups. Being based so close to the Chargers home match venue, we were pleased to provide these unique items to assist the volunteer-run club as they prepare for 2015.”

Under 16’s Team Manager, Richard Crummack, expressed his gratitude to the team at Triangle Kia as they took receipt of the balls on Saturday. “The balls are a fantastic addition to our match-day equipment. The large quantity provided by Triangle means we have match-day balls for our range of teams from Under 7 to Under 18 age groups for several seasons. Additionally we have a number of supporters wishing to purchase balls which will generate valuable income for the club. We have an exciting 2015 season ahead, with professional coaches joining our team to ensure the best experience and development opportunity for our players, as well as our inaugural Rugby League Tour of the Netherlands in the Summer. We begin 2015 sign-up for all age groups in January, further details available at .”

Coaching Appointments for 2015

In addition to the appointment of Shaun Jewitt as Chargers’ Coach Co-ordinator, the club would also like to announce the involvement of the following coaches and players in the upcoming season:

Liam Finn
Liam is currently playing with Castleford Tigers in the Super League as well as captain of the Ireland national team.  Liam has agreed to put on a couple of session with the club to improve our attacking and kicking game.

Jack Howieson
Jack is currently working with the Eagles on the Strength and Conditioning and the club will be making use of the facilities at Jack’s gym to add some variety to training sessions across some of the squads with a focus upon the development of the Under 12 squad for 2015.  Jack will also be working closely with the club to develop a new product for 2015.

Ashley Rennison
Ashley is a Level 2 RFL qualified coach with experience of playing and coaching at a number of community clubs, including a stint supporting the development of our own Open Age squad a couple of season ago.  Ashley will be the Under 12s Coach for 2015.

Tony Tonks
A product of the Wakefield Wildcats Academy, Tony has played professionally for the Huddersfield Giants in Super League as well as with Bradford Bulls, Oldham Roughyeds, Halifax RLFC and Featherstone Rovers RLFC.
Having recently signed for the Sheffield Eagles, Tony will be primarily working with the forwards from the Under 12, Under 16 and Under 18 squads to develop the team ‘go-forward’, but as with the other Pro Coaching Team members will hopefully be working at some level with all age groups.

Aaron Wycherley
Between them, Aaron and Joe Holland built a successful Primary Rugby League squad last season, taking them to festivals across the a Rugby League heartland and into their first contact games.  Aaron is a product of the Chargers’ Junior development programme and Sheffield Eagles scholarship.

Leigh Sanders
Leigh is a product of the Chargers and Sheffield Eagles, having played professional for the Eagles and represented England at International Level at Under 18s and Student.  Leigh will be providing strength & conditioning support for the club with each player registered for 2015 being offered a free initial consultation with Leigh as well as online access to the nutrition and advice web site which Leigh has developed with the club and hosted by 2and7 Limited.

Connor Barnard
Connor joined the Under 15s squad for the 2013 season, their first within the Yorkshire Junior League and having developed a liking for the game, is now looking to move into a coaching role.  This continues the club’s commitment to the development of internal talent from player to coach roles and Connor will be an excellent addition to the coaching team, teaching the Under 12s the same strong running and handing off tactics that took him to the top of the try scoring table for the Under 15s last season.

Discussions are still ongoing with up to three additional coaches to allow flexibility and diversity across all age groups with a focus upon the development of in-house talent and progression of players into coaching roles where appropriate.
