Will Britten to lead 1st XV in new season – 2019-20

Will Britten will captain Newark’s first XV for a second season starting in September.

The centre has been re-appointed by the club’s board of directors for the new season which starts away to Ashfield on Saturday Sept 14.
The first home game is on Sept 28 against Coalville.

Tim Barker, the club’s director of rugby, said: “Will had an excellent debut season as captain in which we finished eighth in Midlands Two East North and triumphed in the Notts, Lincs & Derbys Shield.

“I’m looking forward to working with Will and our new first team coach, Adam Corcoran, who has joined the club from Paviors.”

Pre-season training will start in early July building towards three friendly fixtures, starting on Aug 24 when the club stages a centenary match against a Notts, Lincs & Derbys under-20s XV at Kelham Road.

Newark’s first home league game is on September 28 against Coalville.
