12 Jul Ravens pre-season continues
As pre-season continues for Bridgend Ravens, Saturday morning saw the squad hit Merthyr Mawr for the first of a number of fitness sessions over the next few weeks.
A number of squad members both old and new were present as Strength & Conditioning Coach Liam Capener-Jones put the boys through the paces with a few conditioned matches, relays and hill runs. New Head Coach and Coaching Co-ordinator Matt Silva was happy with how the first session went.
“The dunes was the first of a number of Saturday fitness sessions the squad will be participating in over the pre session period. The work ethic displayed on Saturday from the boys was superb and they’re creating a highly competitive environment.”
“As a coaching group we are very happy with the effort the boys are putting in, and are excited ahead of the new season.”
With a large number of last season’s squad having been retained on new two year contracts along with the key re-signings of former Ravens Jamie Murphy, Tom O’Flaherty and Chris Williams, the club are optimistic ahead of the start of the new expanded 16 team Principality Premiership.
Further new additions to the squad are due to be announced soon as the final pieces of the jigsaw are put in place ahead of the pre-season friendlies which commence on August 13th.
