New course is available to county’s teenage players

RUGBY clubs in Northumberland can find out more about a regional programme that organisers say will help youngsters to develop their skills.

Talented players in the county are being sought for the Gateshead College BTEC Level 3 in Sport.

Those who join up will be able to take advantage of expertise and guidance from top coaches whilst training and studying at either the college’s Academy for Sport or the Darlington Arena.

They will also be able to continue playing for their own clubs at weekends.

The programme has links with universities, large sporting organisations and businesses in the industry to show what roles are available. For more information, including details of open events, call 0191 4902447.
