SALISBURY Rugby Club's pre-season training continues to progress well under the eyes of Mark Bugden, Derek Phillimore and Marcus Olsen as they build towards their trial matches and South West Division 1 East opener at Maidenhead on Saturday, September 7.

The club are holding an open trial on Wednesday, August 28, welcoming all players, both old and new, to take part. This will be followed by three trial matches played back-to-back on Saturday, August 31.

Hamish Morton the new director of rugby said: “I'm keen to stress that the trials will be open to give new players the chance to compete with more established club members on a level playing field and, perhaps, to welcome back some old faces we've not yet seen on the training park.”

Anyone who wants to take part in the training sessions on Tuesdays and Thursdays (6.30pm) or has any enquires about pre-season contact 01722 325317.
