OA SAINTS OFFICIALS
After finishing fourth last season in the Women's Championship South East Division 2, the Saints look forward to a fresh start with a new Head Coach, Daren Brown, taking the helm. It has taken a season for the Saints to rebuild the squad, with a strong focus on recruitment as the main driver to meet our 3-year plan of running two ladies sides and finish in the top two of the league.
Darren joins us as a Level 2 Coach, currently working towards his Level 3 Qualification. He was previously Head Coac at Slough RFC. We have some new assistant coaches supporting Darren. including Sam Townsend who has been a well-respected player and coach at OAs for many years and Ryan Littleboy, delivering some specific skills and drills. Our guest Coach, Charlie Hughes, whose scrum and lineout expertise enhanced the Saints set piece last year, stays with us to deliver some technical sessions later on in this season.
Many new players have joined the Saints through the summer and preseason, plus we also welcome four Junior Saints who are now eligable to play at Senior Women's level. Our squad is constantly growing and much of this has been due to inviting local teams to play in mini tournaments at OSs to help build relationships, increasing our presence on social media and taking part in RFU supported schemes such as the 'Pitch Up and Play', all aimed at bringing girls into rugby.
Off the pitch, the Saints are as ever keen to fundraise and get involved in main club activities. Look out for the ever-popular Saints calander, and we are also planning another Race Night, to be hosted by the Saints, which will take place in 2017.
Team building events are important to keep the squad united, and these include fancy dress, team BBQ's, activity days and participating in 7s and 10s Tournaments. In May 2016 the Saints livened up the inagural Amsterdam National 7s Tournament which most definitely had an appetite for fun. If all this sounds like your type of club, the Saints are always looking forward to welcoming new players of all ages and ability.
