1st xv Tabs

I would like to take this opportunity to say that it is a great honour to be captaining Leighton Buzzard 1st Team for the up and coming 2018/2019 season. Having moved to LBRFC as a colt I have thoroughly enjoyed playing rugby at Wright’s Meadow and joining the senior squad at 17. I feel I have well and truly risen through the ranks, and to become captain 8 years later, is a real honour.

Having looked up to and admired my predecessors I will strive to do the best I can for the club and it’s players.

We will be competing once again in East Midlands 1, a league which is both challenging and enjoyable for us. Having many highs last year but sadly more lows as we ended the season in a relegation battle, the whole squad are looking forward to performing at a higher standard this year and finishing in the top half of the table. With young players gaining more confidence combined with our depth of experience I believe we have a capable and winning formula.

This is our 2nd year with head coach Tom Mowbray, who having joined the club last year has changed a lot since starting. Players are now familiar with his coaching style and expectations during training and match play which will further enhance the cohesion between players and the coaching team. Along side Tom we welcome Graham Magill and David Chapman who have a wealth of experience both on and off the pitch and I know the players look forward to working with them both.

As ever, we are always welcoming new players of all ability’s, 2nd and 3rd teams have regular games every Saturday and for those interested it is an opportunity to push for 1st team shirts. Moving forward the more bodies at training will mean an increased competition for shirts and therefore a higher standard of rugby. Please don’t hesitate to contact the club or myself if you are interested, new players will always be welcomed as the involvement of ‘new blood’ will ensure progression and succession. Training takes place on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 7 pm-9pm with Touch rugby on Wednesdays.

I cannot wait to get stuck into the new season and hope it’s a success for all at Leighton Buzzard, Look forward to seeing you all on the sideline or on the pitch.
