Will Britten named Newark Rugby Club captain for the third season running
Will Britten has been appointed captain of Newark Rugby Club for the third season running.
Tim Barker, director of senior rugby, said the decision was unanimously taken at a recent club board meeting.
“I’m delighted that Will has accepted the challenge of another season as captain,” said Barker.
“Due to the curtailment of last season because of covid-19, there is definitely a sense of unfinished business.
“The young first team squad made huge progress under new coaches Adam Corcoran and James Offer and we will be looking to develop further next season.”
Newark’s senior squad returned to training last week after the coronavirus restrictions were lifted by government and the RFU.
More than 36 senior players attended last Tuesday’s session.
Another 30 Colts enjoyed their first run out in a session led by Danny Coen and Paul Bratton after lockdown measures were relaxed.
The squad will train every Tuesday and Thursday at the Kelham Road ground from 7.30pm.
The club said all new player were welcome.
Barker explained it is still not known when the 2020-21 season will begin and the club is following all regular guidelines from the RFU.
Newark will announce further details of the new season as soon as the RFU give the go-ahead.
