Further Squad Updates

Rowland and Craig have been working hard in the pre-season to build an exciting squad of 1st XV and Development Players. As the first test approaches this weekend away against Darlington Mowden Park please see the update squad page to help you recognise some of the new faces.

Details of the Ins and Outs are provided here.  In summary:

  • 24 Players have been retained
  • 7 Players have made the move up from U18s to the Development squad
  • 14 New additions
  • 12 Players still on trial
  • 20 Players have moved on

 

In addition Ian Whitby (new Development team manager) and Scott Murphy (Development team coach) have put together a full fixture list of 24 matches for the development squad (see here).  With this in addition to the 33 1st XV fixtures, 19 Wanderers fixtures, and 22 Exiles fixtures), it promises to be a feast of Senior rugby at Volac Park.

Blood & Sand link with Premiership Champions grows

Matt GoodeThe strong link between Cambridge Rugby Club and the Aviva Premiership Champions Northampton Saints has continued to develop with new player / coach Matt Goode making a guest appearance for Saints in The Premiership Rugby 7s Finals at the Stoop this evening. 
Goode, 31, who celebrated the birth of his 2nd child earlier this week, works for the Saints Community team managing the HITZ programme in partnership with Premiership Rugby. Cambridge supporters can watch Matt live on BT Sport this evening, and then in person at Volac Park for the 1st home pre-season fixture, v Old Albanians on the 23rd August.

The Saints will also be coming to Volac Park, as the Academy U18 side have chosen the clubs great facilities as a summer training base for a number of their sessions. The Saints Community team will also be running a 3-day Camp at the club from 19-21 August, looking for future Saints stars (aged 6-16) in a few weeks time, details are on the Saints website.

The Premiership Champions will also base the Cambridgeshire 'Developing Player Programme' (DPP) at Volac Park for U13, U14 and U15 age groups throughout the 2014/15 season. The DPP is the sub county development programme for players who feed up to the Saints Elite Player Development Group (EPDG) age groups, of which many Blood & Sand youth players are in both set ups!

McComb joins coaching team

Gareth McCombGareth McComb will begin the transition towards coaching with a player/coach role for this season.

The former Rotherham, Birmingham and Nottingham back row has notched up over 15,000 minutes of rugby in the last 10 years and he goes into the 2014/15 season, his 6th at Volac Park, with 130 games for the Blood & Sand under his belt.

Rowland adds, "Gareth is due to have a minor op to tidy up a niggling injury and will not return to play until the new season has started so we saw this as the perfect opportunity to start his coaching involvement with the team."

"He has no intention to hang his boots up just yet, and we are glad of that, he has so much to offer and we are delighted to help his coaching development as he helps the development of our young squad."
