Fylde 1st team lock Matt Garrod will retain his coaching/managerial role with the Club’s Colts set-up in the 2018-19 season. The Club is incredibly grateful for the work of Mick Heys and colleagues last season as they resuscitated Colts rugby at the Woodlands. Thanks Mick & Nicky!

Matt will work with accomplished, well known coach Alan Holmes and other volunteers to prepare the squad for what will be another exciting campaign.

Matt is looking to clarify the Colts squad and has issued a request to existing and potential new players.

“If you are still eligible to play for the Colts this year can you please let me know ASAP. If you know of anyone wanting to play then please get them to send me a message.

Upcoming events:

  • Sevens tournament at Preston Grasshoppers on Friday 15th June. The bar will be open for parents as it’s HopFest.
  • O2 Touch Rugby starts on Wednesday on Lytham Green, opposite the Queens pub.
  • We are organising a game in September against a Polish touring team from ages 16-19 so everyone will be able to play from this year’s colts. We are yet to confirm a day in September.
  • Pre-season training dates are yet to be confirmed by myself and Alan Holmes.

We have applied for the league again so there will be plenty of fixtures.”
