This weekend saw 7 of our Pirates attend the North East Raiders development session held at the Colburn Leisure Centre in Catterick, the central hub for Touch in the North East.
North East Raiders are the county level equivilant for Touch with teams dedicated to open age and Masters with the hope to bring playing opportunites for U18s and U15s. developement sessions are aimed at offering a higher level of Touch coaching and referee development to all clubs in the region. Development sessions will continue into early 2018 then players will be scouted at the Touch Northern Cup held at Percy Park RFC.
If successful they will be invited to trial for the North East Radiers to represent the region at the Touch Nationals or Junior & Masters Nationals held in late 2018.
