SEGHILL Rugby Club are back in pre-season training as they build up to their second season in Durham and Northumberland Division 3.

The players will be put through their paces in a pre-season friendly against local rivals Blyth on Saturday, August 13, as they prepare to open their league campaign at home to Hartlepool BBOB on Saturday, September 3.

In the same opening fixture last season, Seghill edged a narrow 17-14 victory after Hartlepool had taken an early lead.

New first XV captain James Goodwin will be hoping his players can increase their margin of victory this time around.

Anyone interested in joining the club, at senior or junior level, can contact George Arnott on 07711 982506 for more details, or attend the training sessions at Wefare Park.

Seniors train from 7pm on Tuesdays and juniors from 7.15pm on Thursdays.
