Ford: "We can’t wait to get started"

27 June 2014

The Bath Rugby squad returned to pre-season training this week with renewed determination for success in 2014/15.

Along with the news this week that Head Coach Mike Ford, First Team Coach Toby Booth and Forwards Coach Neal Hatley had agreed new deals, the Club announced the arrival of Darren Edwards as a First Team Coach. 

All four were delighted to welcome back the squad and begin the preparations for next season, as Ford explains.

"Pre season is an exciting time of the year an opportunity for us to get better and make  significant improvements on last year. 

"The boys have come back fitter than ever and have  worked really hard this week. The whole organisation is massively excited for the forthcoming campaign.

“Our recruitment again, has been predominantly young English talent and we are looking forward to seeing what these guys add to what is already, a very talented squad.

“The competition for places will only incentivise the guys to work harder, which is beneficial for the whole squad, and we can’t wait to get started.

“We have high expectations and will look to take our game to the next level as we believe we have only just scratched the surface of what this team can achieve."
