We have now received the first fixtures from the Yorkshire Junior League and will be working with the Midlands Rugby League to identify playing opportunities for development squads which have recruited well over the off-season, but which do not currently have the required numbers of players to being competitive fixtures in March.
It is expected that the Midlands Rugby League fixtures will begin in early May as in previous years, which provides another couple of months to bring more players into the squads and aim for the full 13-a-side matches with a fall back of small sided fixtures of 9-a-side.
The relevant squad pages will be completed once we finalise leagues and age groups, which should be by the start of next week.
First training session for all age groups is Saturday, February 7th at Warsop Vale – Primary RL, Under 12 & Under 14 from 10:30 to 12:00 and Under 16 & Under 18 from 12:00 to 13:30.
For those squads registered in the Yorkshire Junior League the season starts on the weekend of March 7th. Players who have not yet completed the sign on process, please bring your forms to the first session and set up your payments online from the ‘Pay Online’ section of the web site.
A training schedule will appear on the web site ASAP.
