Eccles RFC take great pleasure in announcing the return of James Wright to the Men’s Section.
Sam Simpson, Eccles RFC Director of Rugby and Head Coach made this statement on James’ return. “I’ve used the word delighted a few times this season when making these type of announcements but when I say I’m delighted to see the return of James Wright to Gorton Street I whole heartedly mean it from the bottom of my heart.
James isn’t only a product of Eccles RFC’s Mini and Junior set up, he also played an instrumental part in the club’s promotion from level 7 to 6 in his first season as a senior player, when he was an ever-present member of a squad that firmly established itself at that level beating many teams now plying their trade at level 5.
Unfortunately, James has been away from the club in recent seasons as a player while attending Edge Hill University, where he not only represented his University but also played for Southport RUFC, recently scoring a brace of tries for their 1XVs and receiving great praise in post match write ups. Despite his relocation, James’s passion for Eccles RFC saw him traveling back to coach both the Colts & Eccles Ladies teams.
James will be a tremendous addition to the team & squad at this point of the season bringing with him, not only a huge amount of experience & knowledge but also an understanding of winning games at this level and the ability to play in a variety of the key positions across the backline . Welcome Home James”
