Youth Training Arrangements

The Quins Youth will resume training on Tuesday 3rd August and are looking for players to join our young but talented squad.

With the new WRU age grade for youth rugby being introduced over the summer we welcome players of all positions and abilities who will be in school years 12 & 13 from September.

The club is looking forward to continuing Youth rugby at the club and this is an excellent time to join a team with excellent coaching and playing facilities.

Training will take place on Tuesday and Thursday evenings with coaches Gary Evans, Wayne Proctor & Cen Powell. Gary has been coaching this group of players since Under 7’s having played for the Quins for many years and giving his all in playing as he does coaching. Cen joined when the current squad were under 9’s having previously played for the Quins in his younger days then moved to London and represented the Grasshoppers, London Welsh and Middlesex County. Former Scarlet and Welsh International Wayne joined in the last two seasons and brings an added dimension to the already successful coaching partnership.

All players are welcome to turn up on the evening or contact Gary (07855 769744) or Cen (07786 373697) for a chat and specific training arrangements.

The Quins prides itself on developing rugby players  from under 7’s upwards and hope that we can play a small part in their rugby journey. With the change in rules for Youth rugby we have a Seconds XV for those who are over 18 who wish to continue their journey. It was a testament to this ethos that over the last weekend when Wales took on Canada the following individuals were involved with the Welsh Squad.

Stephen Jones – Former Quins Youth Player now Welsh Attack Coach

Gareth Williams – A destructive flanker who represented the Quins over 100 times is now a coach with the Welsh team.

Josh Turnbull – Played for the Quins and will now coach with us when our 1st XV is back playing

Ryan Elias – played 45 games for the 1st XV while on his rugby journey before turning professional.

Kieran Hardy – 55 Quins appearances for the 1st  XV

Gareth Thomas – 56 Quins appearances for the 1st XV.

Whilst not all the players had come through our mini, junior and youth system the Quins have played a big  part in their careers. Tumble, Pontyberem, Newcastle Emlyn and Carmarthen Athletic should be proud of what they started.
Not forgetting young Eddie James a recent Quins youth player who is now representing Wales Under 20s following in the recent footsteps of Jac Price and Osian Knott and many others before them. The Quins offers an environment that encourages not only rugby development but social development for players of all ages and abilities.
We look forward to watching our Youth take the field when they can and hope you our supporters do also.
