Torfaen Tigers looking for volunteers
Torfaen Tigers are looking for more volunteers to help build the club
Torfaen Tigers are looking for more volunteers to help build the club for the 2011 season.
This year promises to be a massive year for Welsh Rugby League and the same can definately be said for Torfaen Tigers RLFC, the club is looking to build on the foundations of Wales Rugby League's excellent schools programme, which has seen all Secondary Schools in Torfaen now playing the greatest game of all, in either the Carnegie Champion Schools or Scorpions Cup competitions, by establishing a full junior section after running only an Open Age team last year.
The 1st team spent 2010 rebuilding in the WRL Championship, following a poor 2009 campaign that saw the club struggle to raise a team. The decision proved to drop a division proved to be a masterstroke as an influx of new faces as well as a few returning old ones gave the squad enough depth to finish the season as League Leaders before losing to NPT Steelers in the Grand Final.
The reward for this is a return to the WRL Premier for the 2011 season. For the first time in the clubs history, there are plans to run a midweek development team playing against Universities and Championship tier clubs to feed the 1st team and ensure gametime for all players in the squad.
In order for the club, who will once again be based at Pontypool United's Memorial Ground, to fulfill these ambitious expansion plans they are actively looking to recruit new volunteers to help with all aspects of running the club including:
Senior Team assistant coach(es)
Senior Team Manager
Water Carriers/First Aiders
Junior Team Managers
Anyone regardless of experience who is interested in helping with any of these positions or any other and can spare a few hours a week please email the club at TorfaenTigers@gmail.com or ring Rob Davies on 07964296496 for more details.
