With their new coaching set up, including Mark Yeates as head Coach, Steve Yuill returning as backs coach and two-time world cup winning All Black Ben Franks coming is as forwards coach, there are exciting times ahead for the team.

Pre-Season has been tough, but with great numbers turning out to sessions it has been productive and has aloud any young or new players to be well integrated into the squad.

Two games against Milton Keynes and Banbury have given they players some much needed game time for the winter months ahead. A mixed Tows side beat Milton Keynes in a mid-week game and drew to Banbury on Saturday 24th August.

When asked for his thoughts on pre-season Tows Captain Craig Holton said, “Pre-season has been fantastic with a number of new and young faces coming into the set up. With have been working as a unit including the colts for the majority training, giving them a taste of senior rugby. The Introduction of a new coaching set up has changed things up and added a new angle.”

A trip to Leicestershire awaits Tows this weekend playing newly promoted Market Harborough, Craig reflected on the last meeting between the sides, “We look to build on last year as when we face a Market Harborough side who are new to the league. The last time we met this side was a pre-season friendly last, which saw Harborough come out on top. We anticipate a very competitive first game and look forward to the challenge.”

The first home game of the season will take place on Saturday 14th September 2019 against Melbourne in front of the Vice Presidents and guests.

Towcestrians 2s take a side away at Lutterworth as they start their season on Saturday.
