We will try and keep improving with every game, that is what we will do. We will try and compete but it will be incredibly difficult. We’re not under any illusions as to how tough the Championship is going to be. “Staying up would rank up there, definitely rank up there – it would be incredible to be able to do that. We just want to be in a position where we don’t make idiots of ourselves and we compete as hard as we can. Every club we’re going to is a big club and there are some really good rugby clubs. I played for Bedford myself, a proper rugby club.

It was really handy to have their help. ”Planning for their first-ever Championship season will see an informal running club morph into official pre-season training at the end of June and Cairns will be sticking to his guns despite reaching the big time, relying on the togetherness of the squad that has taken Caldy this far to now test itself in a division that will be all new to them.?? https://t.
“We were just finding our feet really and the lads learned very quickly the level of what we needed to do to win games. Then we ground out a lot of results and as it shows in sport if you get into a habit of winning it massively helps. And the Sale Sharks tie-up, how beneficial was that for Cairns and Caldy? “We only really had Elliott Gourlay all year, we had the full-back because we got a couple of injuries. We spoke to Sale and they lent us Elliott and Nye Thomas. Nye, unfortunately, got injured and didn’t play very much but he had a couple of games towards the end.
There aren’t other options, getting to Jersey will be a plane journey and probably Penzance (for Cornish Pirates) because it is just too far in a bus and not doable but it is what it is. We will have to find a way. It hasn’t been fully planned out but I’m sure the club will react and do the right thing for the lads. “The rest of the travelling isn’t too bad. We’ve done it before so we will be absolutely fine.

Despite an early-season wobble, a 17-game winning streak – 23 wins overall from 28 outings – ushered them into the Championship, a home win last month over Sale in front of a jubilant bumper crowd securing them the title. Wow. “That was brilliant, it was a great atmosphere and the game added to that, ” enthused Caldy boss Cairns to RugbyPass about the club with a wooden shack for a clubhouse and an open field for a ground.
“We packed in 3, 500 people on the bank and there will probably never be another day like it in Caldy. It was unbelievable, the lads getting promoted and winning the league, but we have moved on pretty quick because most of our lads are involved in the County Championship. “We’d a good celebration for a couple of weeks but now we are on to the next one and obviously thinking about next season. Brilliant, it was good, ” he continued, reflecting on their latest title-winning campaign. “We lost our ten in pre-season and our 15 in the second game of the season. Then the ten that came in to replace got injured and then the next ten that came in got injured.

They were crowned National League 2 North champions in 2017 in front of a 1, 432 Paton Field attendance against second-place Sale FC, reaching National 1 for the first time ever.
There are loads of good fans and the lads will really enjoy the atmospheres. ”Always a pleasure to have you guys onboard https://t. co/2DqPcd9VIL— ANTHONYS TRAVEL (@ANTHONYSTRAVEL) November 1, 2021A feature of the Caldy operation under Cairns is they don’t do overnights, instead preferring to be early-risers for away matches. For instance, last October’s 300-mile trip to Plymouth required a 5:15am start. “That’s correct, ” acknowledged the head coach. “The lads don’t like travelling the night before so we just get on the bus early and get our way down to the game. “There will be a couple of plane journeys in there in the Championship.
