The second adult team within the club will be in its third year of a regular weekly competition having played in the Midlands Merit League in 2010, RLC East (2011) and Midlands Regional (2012) in which it reached the finals. The team will play in the Midlands Premier Division against teams such as Telford, Coventry Dragons, Sleaford, etc.
All fixtures take place on a Saturday afternoon kicking off at 12 or 2.30pm.
The team trains on a Tuesday and Thursday night from 7pm until 8.30pm. Sessions take place at Duston Sports Centre. The coach of the team is Patrick Wilson. Patrick is UKCC Level 2 qualified and is also employed by Northampton Rugby League Ltd as a Community Rugby League Coach. He is also one of the founding members of the club and in previous seasons has successfully coached a number of junior teams within the club as well as taking the Academy to the Final last season.
All players need to be registered with the RFL and to join the club costs £50.00 for the season. Match fees are £5.00 for a home game or an away game where no coach travel is utilised. There will be an increased fee for any away games where a coach is booked. We provide a fully qualified physiotherapist who is at both training and matches and all players are fed at home games.
The second team will have a high standard to reach with the first team constantly leading the way with success, a pressure that Patrick and his team will be able to live with.
