Player Recruitment 2016/17

1 year ago By James Lee

We are looking for players of all abilities to join us for the 2016/17 season! Pre-season training begins Tuesday 5th July.

Liverpool Collegiate RUFC have established themselves as one of the most successful community sports clubs in Liverpool.

Collegiate are always keen to attract new players to the club running four senior sides, a colts side, as well as 10 Mini and Junior sides.

The 1st XV will be competing in South Lancs/Cheshire 2 this season and it is hoped the club will secure promotion into the top division in the next couple of seasons. Our 1st XV offers a good opportunity for experienced players to play competitive rugby.

The 2nd XV play in North West Division 1. With opposition in this league including the second teams of a number of National League clubs this allows players to face a good quality opposition, producing a squad of players who are also comfortable playing in the 1st XV.

The 3rd XV offers a more relaxed approach to rugby for those keen on the social side of the game or newcomers to the sport. This is a great team for those who may not be able to commit to regular rugby or wish to play at a slower pace, and provides a good learning platform for those wishing to develop.

This season we will also run a U23s Development Team with the intention of recruiting and retaining younger players who will then go on to play in 1st and 2nd teams in the future.

Being in close proximity to Liverpool University, LJMU and Liverpool Hope University the club has benefitted from the inclusion of numerous student players in previous seasons - with many of them playing regular 1st XV rugby. The club is easy to get to by public transport and lifts are available for those who need it.

We a really keen to attract new players at any level of rugby for next season as we aim to continue our success.

If you looking for a new club to join or a new challenge as well as excellent coaching and a lot of enjoyment please contact our rugby manager on 07951049273 or email liverpoolcollegiate@gmail.com.

Pre-season training begins Tuesday 5th July at 7pm on Otterspool Prom and continues every Tuesday and Thursday - same time, same place.
