Fareham Heathens RFC U15 side have boosted their numbers represented at London Irish Academy DPP with 3 players being selected for this coming season. Joining front row player, Dom Fella, for this coming season are Full Back Charlie Barnes and Number 8 Josh Nicholls.
Having spent the last 2 seasons at the Academy Dom Fella credits the discipline, motivation and hard work put in by the Fareham Heathens’ coaches providing him with the skills and mindset to push him further in what he hopes to be his career.
Josh Nicholls has been at Fareham Heathens since April 2013 and gone from strength to strength showing his versatility at playing nearly all positions. Having missed out on selection last season, Josh has worked incredibly hard and has proven that you should never give up on what you want.
Relative newcomer to rugby, Charlie Barnes, only started playing rugby 14 months ago and has only played one season of rugby. Having come from a football background he has shown that it is never too late to take up playing rugby and prove your ability amongst those who have been playing for years. London Irish Coaches have clearly recognised his potential and selected him for this coming season’s DPP.
U15 Head Coach and Fareham Heathens CCC, Jack Orley, confirmed “It’s no surprise that they got into the London Irish Academy. Their passion for rugby, their attitude to training and the fun they have when playing reflects on the environment set by the whole team. They are a great example of the team we have and I am very proud that they have been recognised for being great players and great young men”.
Fareham Heathens RFC would like to say how proud they are of the players and their supporting teammates and wish them all the success for their futures.
Together and Strong
