Westcliff Unveils “new look” Coaching Team

Westcliff RFC unveils a ‘new look’ coaching team to take the reins for our first National League season and will include a European Cup Winner & Premiership Champion.
The club hasn’t rested on it’s laurels since the season ended, and have worked hard to assemble a coaching team that not only understands the club ethos of continuing to develop our home grown players, but also brings the skill and experience required to compete in the National Leagues.
We are therefore very proud to announce our coaching team of John Rudd, Joe Vandermolen, and Kent Bray along with Saracens double centurion and former Westcliff youth player, Jackson Wray. 
Keeping John on board was very important for us. He has been an integral part of what we have achieved over the last few years, not just with our backs but also the squad as a whole. His energy and enthusiasm, along with his years’ of knowledge gained whilst playing Premiership rugby, has brought exceptionally high standards to the squad.
Kent has joined the team as our new skills coach, and will also work alongside John with the backs. Kent is an exciting addition to the coaching team, and the coaches and players will be able to draw on his wealth of rugby knowledge and experience, both as a player and coach at State and Premiership level in Australia and the UK.
Current Westcliff player Joe Vandermolen will become the forwards’ coach, whilst continuing with his playing duties. Joe approached us about the role and whilst this may be Joe’s first coaching role, he has already put in a huge amount of work and shown a hunger to succeed in terms of the role and the club. Joe also has a lot of National League and Championship rugby playing experience from when he played at a high standard after coming through the club’s youth set up.
Finally, securing Saracen back rower Jackson on the coaching team speaks for itself. To have someone of his stature is such an accolade and the fact that he is a former Westcliff Youth player makes it even more gratifying.
He will concentrate his efforts on the defence and breakdown area, and even though he will not be able to make every session, we are confident that every player in the squad will benefit from his knowledge and experience. 
In addition to the coaches mentioned above we also have other exciting specialised coaches lined up for the season. As previously announced, former Harlequin and England Centre, Jordan Turner-Hall will work with our youth sides, developing our future senior players.
We hope you are as excited as us about these new assignments – Senior Squad Pre Season training starts Saturday 9am June 22nd at The Gables
All new players are welcome at Westcliff RFC no matter what age or level. Please contact Pete Mahoney for more details.
Summer Training Has Started

Summer senior training has started with sessions on Tuesdays and Thursdays for touch, skills and fitness. Training starts at 19:30 and finishes at 21:00. All senior (mens and womens) and academy players are welcome. Contact Lewis Harvey or Pete Mahoney for more details.
A Thank You from The Chairman

I would like to say a big thank you to all those loyal members that have already got on board the Westcliff Rugby Club ” metaphorical bus ”.
Due to the RFU reducing the funding for clubs in level 4, along with the estimated increased travelling and additional admin costs, and mandatory new equipment requirements at this level for match day recording of games for the 1st XV, this is expected to exceed £20,000 alone.
So far over 50 members have bought a “seat” donation for £100, with many more buying more than 1 seat.
As you know we have reached National League Level for the first time in our club’s history of rugby, on an amateur basis and in the main by promoting our own and continuing to invest in our own youth system.
We continue to be “one club one family” and the effort shown from the membership so far for this initiative clearly shows this.
If any members or companies would still like to get on board the ” Westcliff Bus ” then please contact me by email or on 07968970690.
