Leach - Looking forward to Academy Games

Josh Leach has praised the U16s squad for all the efforts on and off the field over the past 2 months, and the Performance Manager is looking forward to seeing them put all the training into practice on the pitch.

“The squad is made up from the East/West/South teams and we have been training twice a week since June. I have to give huge credit to all the boys as they have shown great commitment.  Over the past 2 months we have looked at core skills/unit skills plus an introduction into team play (attack and defence).”

“As a group they have come together well and have been enthusiastic in everything we have done. We play the Dragons on Sunday 13th August away, and watching training you can see we are looking sharp, so I am excited to see us play.“

Of course it is not only the players that put in the effort as Leach explains – “The coaching staff also deserve credit, and they have worked hard and are looking to develop as well. “

“Once this block is over the players head back to the provinces, and will continue to work on skills and training. It will also be an opportunity for us to have a look as some of the players who didn’t make at this point. We have to thank the players families, as some travel over 2 hours to get to training which is a huge commitment, and the support is a huge factor in the whole process.”
