Verulamians Rugby Club are looking to go one step further this season after a fairly successful year last time out.
They picked up the Herts President’s Trophy with a comprehensive victory over Watford at Saracens’ Allianz Park in April but fell just short of promotion from Herts Middlesex One.
That will be the goal for the first team, which is still captained by James Hayes, but is now under the stewardship of new caoch, Sam Townsend.
Their season opens with a home game against Old Actonians tomorrow (Saturday) with a 3pm kick-off.
And there will be plenty of action at Cotlandswick this weekend.
The seconds are also at home tomorrow when they face Chesham and on Sunday the mini and junior section hold part two of their registration day.
And the club are anticipating an increase on last year’s numbers that amounted to around 250.
- 1 St Albans paedophile jailed for trying to arrange online abuse
- 2 Aldi prioritises St Albans for new store
- 3 WATCH: Delivery driver caught fly-tipping in rural area
- 4 St Albans woman defies odds to become oldest with Rett Syndrome
- 5 Sentence increase for St Albans theatre stalwart jailed for paedophilia
- 6 Area Guide: The historic St Michael's village area of St Albans
- 7 Major architectural firm moves into St Albans
- 8 Call for proper testing for new Charter Market stalls
- 9 The latest court results for the St Albans area
- 10 Drum kit, CD player and stereo stolen in burglary
That figure is spread across all ages from six to 17 and there is plenty of room to accept more aspiring rugby players.
With numerous qualified coaches and medically trained people to watch over everyone’s welfare, parents can also take advantage of the facilities in the comfortable clubroom.
