Lowestoft and Yarmouth Rugby Club hunt for new head coach

15:48 07 March 2013

Lowestoft & Yarmouth Rugby Club are searching for a new head coach for next season following the decision by current player/coach Scott Nelson to step aside following five successful years in the hot-seat. Scott had been a player with L&Y before moving on to North Walsham then Carlisle before returning as player/coach in 2008 when L&Y were in crisis at the bottom of Eastern Counties One. Only a league reshuffle prevented their demotion that year, and since then Scott has taken the East Coast side into the London leagues by 2009, on to the semi-finals of the RFU National Vase, then up to their current level in London 2 North East in 2011, thoroughly rebuilding the side along the way. Now he is considering a career offshore and believes it is time for someone else to take on the mantle. The role envisaged is a part-time paid post and the applicant will need to be at least Level 2 qualified with applications invited by Tuesday, March 26.

Freethorpe U9 played away to a good Ormesby Lads. Conditions were great for football and what was evident was both teams’ fighting spirit as well as some quality on show. Freethorpe were a credit to themselves and were leading only to let it slip five minutes from the end. But this was their best display of the year, with hopefully more to come. Billy showed a great attitude all match and Ross was his usual battling self. Nevie linked up well with Tobias and between them scored the goal of the match. Eddy was inspirational between the sticks with some fine stops. Will took over at half-time and was strong and confident. Alfie shored up the defence with good reading of the game. Josh contributed to a good performance with some good tackles and quick runs. MoM: Eddy and Will.

Silence could be golden in Norfolk if a trial to cut out noise on the sidelines of youth football matches across the border is deemed to be a success.
