March Bears succeed with promotion appeal as touch rugby training starts

MARCH Bears will play their rugby in the Greene King Super Premiere Merit League next season after successfully appealing for promotion.

The side had originally been placed in the deux table - but appealed against this decision in the search for a greater challenge after enjoying a successful season.

The squad have already begun touch rugby training, with more than 20 players turning out for the latest session.

Players of all abilities are welcome at the sessions, which are held on Thursday evenings from 7pm at the Elm Road Sports Field.

Full training will start on Tuesday and Thursday evenings from July 19, with the season set to kick-off on September 10.
