Originally an old boys’ team, Apache was set up by Adam and Jonas Hurst many years ago, but the ethos remains the same; although the game (and the team) have come a long way since then, our basic ideals have not.
Players can come to training or will be given a ‘trial’ run-out on occasion, and although performance and ability counts for a lot, the ‘personality’ has to fit too; we are always a popular team with spectators as we make time to talk to anyone interested in the team. Players should always be aware that they are joining a ‘club’ and we are all friends on and off the field.
We field 3 sides over the course of the season, which allows us to retain loyal Apache players who may not play in the top side but who can still do a job in one of the other teams and remain a part of the Apache family; it also means new players can be seen in one team or another.
Apache – the senior side, which plays in all international events, the SSS and GB7s, as well as the more prestigious tournaments around the UK;
Apache Raiders – the ‘A’ side, featuring regular players from the top team, new players with a good 7s CV, and players on the verge of breaking into the senior side;
Apache Braves – the ‘Academy’ side, where young players can be seen and learn the game, ageing Apache legends can pass on their experience and retain some form of match fitness, and game-time can be guaranteed for anyone not making the senior squads on any given weekend.
