On Thursday 19th January 2023, Chris Simon and Sammie Phillips, representatives from England Touch were in the region and decided to call by to see what Rockcliff social touch was all about.
Sammie ran the warm up and even got the opportunity to join in with the session. They definitely got the experience of the North East weather with temperatures dropping to 1oC but with lots of running around did not feel the effects.
The purpose of their visit was to see how we could help improve the standards of players in the North East, ready for the Nationals in April and also to view the region’s facilities to host a possible event later in the year. Sammie provided feedback to the volunteer player refs and coaches.
Below are a couple of photos from the session.
