This year Steve, along with other coaches from East Grinstead Rugby Club, will be visiting some of the local schools giving a taster session to encourage children to be involved in this sport.
The Under 9's have come to the end of their season and what a spectacular season they have had as have had East Grinstead's 1st team.
This has been the first year the under 9's have played contact rugby and many have taken to it like ducks to water. The boys have listened and trained well and has been reflected in their festivals this year. Sunday 6th May saw the under 9's awards day. Awards were given for numerous achievements, including the most improved player, highest try scorer, most spectacular tackle, support runner etc. Although a huge congratulations go to Luke Mallett for receiving player of the year by the coaches and players player of the year by his team mates. As you can imagine it was a very emotional day for our head coach, Steve Mallett!!
East Grinstead's 1st team won the southern finals in April putting them forward to play at Twickenham for the final against the northern team Ilkley, which was the climax for the club. This was a great day out as our very own Under 9's players player of the year, Luke Mallett was chosen to be team mascot!! East Grinstead won by 34 points to 18.
