Sale FC are delighted to announce the launch of Sale FC Rugby Foundation. The Foundation will start this season with a Community Coach from our own first team. Andy Hughes will for the next 12 months coach in local schools at all age groups with both girls and boys to get rugby back into prominence in the school system in Trafford. This project has been funded entirely from sponsorship in the minis and juniors section at Sale FC.
There are currently 28 sponsors who’ve stepped forward to enable us to launch this fantastic initiative. We will thank each of our sponsors individually throughout the season and each sponsor will have their logo on the car being provided to Andy for his work.
Andy Hughes Says
My aim at Sale FC is to increase participation in the sport of rugby, supporting talent and provide an opportunity for young people to enjoy playing sport and to sustain their activity levels. Rugby is a sport that can be enjoyed by a range of ages, and there are plenty of age groups at Sale FC that will welcome new players and show them that rugby is a great family sport to be involved in. I want to provide high quality sports coaching and physical activity for young people and to encourage people to participate in rugby at the club. My role will involve making strong links with the schools and Colleges in the area and bringing rugby into the community of Sale and to the club, Sale RUFC. I will be delivering coaching sessions to try and show junior players that rugby is a fun and enjoyable sport to be involved in and that they have a fantastic opportunity with their local rugby club to make new friends, join a prestigious rugby community and also learn new skills. Sale FC already has a fantastic reputation as a rugby club both on and off the field and I’m hoping to get more of the local community involved in a great club. I cannot wait to start and give back to Sale RUFC and the Sale community that I have been partly involved with over the past two seasons and have thoroughly enjoyed. I am looking forward to meeting the Mini and Junior section when they start the new season, meeting the Colts coming through the club and getting the club involved in the local community.
