Who are Woolston Rovers

Woolston Rovers Rugby Club was founded at the Lido Country Club on Manchester Road, Woolston in 1959. The first game played by Woolston Rovers was against Cadishead in the 1960–61 season with Woolston losing 58–8. For the first two seasons Woolston had no pitch, and played all their games away from home. At the start of the third year they acquired a pitch in Victoria Park, where they played until they moved to Bennetts Recreation Ground, Padgate.

Woolston Rovers Open Age have confirmed the coaching set up for the 2019 campaign as they aim to hit the ground running in the Kingstone Press National Conference League Division Three and North West Mens League Division Three.

Mal Holt, who took over as Head Coach on an interim basis part way through the 2018 season, has taken on the role on a permanent basis and he is joined in the coaching department by Dan Griffiths, Rob Campbell, Andy Penny, Scott Whiteley and Will Chadwick.

Rovers PRO Dave Whalley said, “It was an easy decision for the committee to confirm Mal as our Head Coach moving forward. He took on the role in May and really did an excellent job getting us to the Play Off Semi Final as well as winning The Stuart Middleton Foundation Warrington Cup so we are delighted that he has agreed to continue in the role. He is well respected by all players and that is crucial if we are to have success with both sides. Andy has been in charge of the NWML side for two seasons and has done an excellent job which we hope will continue and with the assistants that Mal has appointed it promises to be a very exciting season for us.”

Following his appointment Holt said, “The new look coaching set up is a huge step in the right direction for the club and one that sees a blend of youth and experience as part of it. The NCL team will benefit from myself, Dan Griffiths and Rob Campbell on match days. Dan will continue where he left off last year as my assistant, a role that worked extremely well in the second half of the season, and we have added Rob as another assistant to the team bringing him in from Rylands Sharks and he has some great ideas that we are all looking forward to seeing incorporated into our play. The NWML matchday set up sees Andy Penny continue as Coach with Will Chadwick and Scott Whiteley as his assistants. Scott assisted Andy during 2018 and will continue to do so next year, hopefully in a player/coach role later in the season whilst Will tasted a bit of coaching with the NCL last season and will bring some fresh ideas and enthusiasm into the NWML set up. We will be pushing for promotion for both sides next season and we are all looking forward to a good pre-season that commences on the 3G pitch on Tuesday 13th November, 6.45pm at University Academy of Warrington (Padgate High School). All new and old players will be made very welcome.”

Rovers will also have an Under 18s side once again during 2019 and expressions of interest are sought for a Head Coach, Assistant Coach and Team Manager. If you are interested in any of these positions then please e-mail Club Chairman Steve Moore at steve1moore@virginmedia.com with your details and qualification.

If you would like to be involved at Rovers in any capacity please contact Club Secretary Nikki Whalley on 07889 170895, e-mail nikki_whalley@hotmail.com or log on to the club website at www.woolstonrovers.com for further details.
