Team Of The Year: Thurrock Rugby Club

THURROCK 1sts have won the League with four games to go. The team have continued to steamroller all before them. Spirits were high at the recent Vice-Presidents Lunch so before the spirits went, we spoke to Chairman Bob Heapy about the season but also about the plans the club have off the pitch.

The Blackshots area could be transformed over the next few years to see a sports hub showcasing rugby, athletics and cricket as well as a possible sports academy.

The secret to the teams success is the ability to nurture and retain youth. Many young players are realising that the club is on the up and they could ride rhe crest of a considerable career wave.

It is a pleasure to report down at the club. Everyone is so welcoming and they appear to have the goodwill of both business and families in the borough. Exciting times indeed.
