The new senior management of Bernie Kelly [Club Director of Rugby], Joe Walsh [Coach] and Brendan Leahy [Manager], will unveil their plans for the season to the players when pre-season training commences at Hamilton Park on Tuesday July 24th at 7 pm. All newcomers to Sligo, or anyone who wishes to take up the game, will be most welcome to join the training squad. On the evidence of the tag league, there is a number of players who have the potential to successfully switch to rugby if they are interested in giving it a try. The good news is that there have been no retirements from last season.
Following nine weeks of tag rugby, fitness levels appear to be good, and the management have engaged Karl Gilligan to carry out fitness testing on the squad on August 4th, and to provide a conditioning programme.
The search for a No.10 to replace Jordan Farrington continues, but management are optimistic that a top quality player will be recruited shortly for this position.
