East Kilbride Pirates will host two rookie try-out sessions this month as they step up their search for new players.
Those interested should come along on either Saturday, January 5 or Saturday, January 12, at the John Wright Sports Centre.
Each session will run indoors from 1-3pm and prospective players should wear suitable footwear for training indoors.
Pirates chairman, Amanda McDonald, said: “We were semi-finalists for the British Championship last year, and in 2013 we’ve got ambitions to go all the way to the final, so continuing to grow the size of our squad is really important.
“In particular, we’re looking to recruit linemen this year. They’re the players who specialise in controlling the line of scrimmage – either stopping the opposing team getting through for a touchdown, or blocking a clear path to let our offense get through and score.”
“The ‘trenches’ are often where a game is won or lost, so it’s one of the most important jobs on the team.”
