On Wednesday May 26th, Oadby Wyggs hosted a special evening of training and coach education with guest coach Geraint Davies.
Geraint’s brother Mark and one of his students Tom Ellis (Oadby Wyggs Junior player) sadly passed away in 2019 and 2020 respectively, both due to brain tumours.
Geraint is raising money in their memory for ‘Brain Tumour Research’ and the “My Name’5 Doddie Foundation” (support sufferers of Motor Neurons Disease).
Geraint cycled 455.5 miles over the Bank Holiday taking him from Great Yarmouth to Aberyswyth and on to Swansea. Each evening, he visited rugby clubs along the route delivering a Coaching session as he did at Oval Park.
Known to many at the Club as a parent of Wyggs players, Geraint is a Level 4 Head Coach, high profile Coach Educator and Head of PE at LGS. Geraint visited each group during the night and did a 20/30 mins coaching session with every age group present on the night. Coaches from the minis, juniors and senior sections were all encouraged to attend.
