Here’s another act of generosity from a local business! Lytham Dental Clinic will be providing complimentary mouthguards to Fylde’s 1st XV squad in preparation for the 2018-19 National Two season.

They will also be providing discounted deals to all other senior and colts players as well as to Mini-Juniors. Staff will be on hand at the Mini-Junior registration days on Sundays 26th August and 2nd September.

The RFU said: “We strongly recommends that mouthguards or gumshields are worn for any contact rugby sessions (both training and matches). The use of mouthguards can help to protect the teeth and face; however, there is currently no conclusive evidence that mouthguards reduce the risk of concussion. It is recommended that mouthguards are custom fitted.”
