WILTSHIRE Wyverns team are moving home after a successful first league campaign last season.
The side, who were based at Corsham RFC last summer, will now play out of Trowbridge RFC’s headquarters.
Club treasurer Paul Turner said: “The Trowbridge club provided many of the players for the Wyverns’ first season so this move, after a successful first season at Corsham, is regarded as a natural development.''
The Wyverns are looking to attract players from across the county to play in the summer sport, which allows many rugby union players to maintain their fitness in the close season.
Turner added: “At present, Wyverns run an ‘open age’ (16+) men’s team in the Rugby Football League (RFL) West of England Division.
“But it is hoped that with the establishment of a permanent home, expansion may be possible into youth, women’s, wheelchair and veterans’ (tag) rugby in the future.’’
Wyverns’ will take on Swindon St George, Bristol Sonics, Gloucestershire Warriors, Oxford Cavaliers and Somerset Vikings in their division this season.
The campaign gets underway against Swindon St George, away on May 12.
Training is on Tuesdays at 7pm at Trowbridge RFC’s Green Lane base. See the website wiltshirewyverns.co.uk for start date details.
All prospective players are invited to a meeting Trowbridge RFC on Thursday, March 29 (9pm). Contact Turner at 01225 810408 or email@example.com for information or head coach Baz Ramshaw at 07595 730444, firstname.lastname@example.org.
