Following completion of the clubs second year in the National Leagues and a short post season break, our squad returns to training this coming Sunday for the first session under new Head Coach Dale Clarke.
After a busy 6 months on and off the field, the club is aiming to begin preparations for the 2017 season immediately, beginning with our upcoming Recruitment Day on Sunday 9th October 2016.
The event has always proved popular in the past and we are hoping for a positive turn out once again, giving players of all backgrounds and experience levels the chance to train with the squad, sample the sport and meet our coaches.
With the NFL season underway and interest in the sport once again at a premium with the UK series games around the corner, now is the perfect time to get involved in the sport.
At the Lightning we have always welcomed interest from those who have no previous experience but wish to get. involved and so our recruitment days are the perfect opportunity to give it a go and ask any questions.
As a club we aren’t just looking for players either and are always on the lookout for coaches or volunteers to help run the club behind the scenes or on game days.
Our recruitment day will be held on Sunday 9th October at our usual home of Ashington Rugby Club, from 10am – 1pm. For more information, see our Facebook event or get in touch at NorthumberlandLightning@gmail.com
