Next Rookie Session – 11th December

We’re holding our 2nd recruitment session this Sunday at Tilsley Park for players and staff interested in joining the Saints for 2017.

Following an excellent 2016 season, the Saints have been promoted to Division 1 and are looking to grow the team further.

The sessions do not require you to have any experience but players who have previously played with other teams are encouraged to join too.

Club spokesman James Dunstan said “The 1st rookie session on 27th November was a great success, with near 40 new players in attendance. There was real potential on show at the session, including a few players with experience at university or other senior teams”.

The session on 11th December will wrap up the year before weekly training begins on January 8th.

With Division 1 football coming up in 2017, the British American Football Association are due to announce the conferences shortly, which will determine the opponents for the Saints.
