Your News Two into one goes for Boston

TWO into one does go for Lincolnshire club Boston who are enjoying a revival under their new coaching team.

The Midlands Five East North outfit had stuttered, losing a number of key players to other clubs or to retirement and injury. But things have started to look up at the Princess Royal Arena since Willem Jonker and Sean Hughes joined the club last summer.

Boston were only looking for a Community Coach but Jonker and Hughes proved to be so impressive when they were interviewed that they were both recruited. Hughes was appointed Community Coach with Jonker taking on the role of Senior Coach.

We had a overwhelming response from qualified coaches from all around the world, ie South Africa, Portugal and even Australia, said Bostons new chairman Martyn Miles.

The interviews took place at the Club with all interviewees being shown around the facilities and having the opportunity to coach the Mini's/Juniors and the senior players to see if they liked what they saw.

After phase two of the interviews we were put in a difficult position, there were two candidates that would suit our purposes, both with different qualities on offer.

A decision was made to appoint both of them. Dare I say that both Coaches are doing an excellent job, but this as come with a price. Both Coaches are funded by the Club, therefore the Committee has worked extremely hard in the past few months to ensure that the funding for both Coaches is available by putting on functions regularly at the clubhouse and searching for new sponsors.

Local solicitors Sills and Betteridge have come on board as Bostons main sponsor and Sue Smith, the clubs functions and bar manager, has helped to generate additional revenue to fund the new coaching team.

We've already held a very successful Tag rugby competition and we are running a schools evening league which most of our local schools have signed up for, said Miles.

Our main aim this season for the 1st XV is promotion and to carry on season by season getting promoted when we can.

The other main aim is to show the local community that we exist and to recruit more players young and old.
