Start of a new era...
Start of a new era for Compeed Marlborough Nomads 7's
With 6 weeks until the start of the season, James Davies Head Coach of the 7's brought together over 40 players and staff to attend Compeed Marlborough Nomads 7s club day last Sunday (1/3/20). He was joined by fellow rugby coaches Dean Bradley and Oli Bishop, both of whom make up the coaching team for the 2020 campaign.
The day started with a presentation outlining the programme for the 2020 season along with staffing, fixtures and expectations.
For us as a club we are extremely excited to be able to run 3 competitive 7's side's this year backed and supported by Compeed. The routes and history of our club go back to 1867 when we were known back then as 'Marlborough Nomads', where groups of players used to commute from all over the U.K to compete for us. Four years later we were part of the founding members of the newly formed English Rugby Union in 1871.
Fast forward to 2020, we run a competitive senior, junior and mini's side and welcome the 7's on board as part of our forever growing club.
The 7's team see's the following teams competing at the highest level on the 7's circuit for the 2020 season, including the GB Super Series for both Men's Elite and Women's Elite Teams.
Men's Elite - 17 Tournaments Men's Academy - 10 Tournaments Women's Elite - 11 Tournaments
Keeping with tradition we welcome new and old players to compete within the team, with our aims as a 7's club to:
To be the most successful invitational 7s team.
To act as a platform to develop, upskill and grow rugby talent throughout the U.K to compete at the highest level.
To welcome any new players who are willing to work hard, be loyal and committed to playing for us.
To become a rugby family where players have 100% commitment, are competitive with each other and respect the culture.
Our last training session before the start of the season is at Marlborough RFC (15/3/20) at 11.30-15.00.
If you or any friends wish to attend, please email James in advance of the session.
We look forward to seeing all the teams in action at the first tournament on 12th April.
