New boss Nick Greenall pleased with preparations for Diss Rugby Club's new campaign
New head coach Nick Greenall is pleased with how things are coming together at Diss Rugby Club.
The Blues endured a tough 2018/19 campaign under the guidance of former chief Dave Smith, one in which they were relegated from London 1 North after finishing bottom of the table.
However, as they prepare for life back in London 2 North East, former Ipswich RFC, Southend and North Walsham boss Greenall is excited by what the future holds.
“The whole group is having a really good time at the moment. We are learning but also enjoying ourselves at the same time,” he said.
“Any rugby player worth his salt is competitive and wants to win, and you are more likely to do that if you are enjoying yourself and your surroundings.
“We are looking at a couple of players from overseas but there will also be some new local players coming in.
“We have freshened things up a little bit and there is a real family feel about the place.
“I know the chairman at Diss really well and I respect the attitude of the club. It is a really well run club and I know from coaching against them that there are a lot of good characters.
“There is a long way to go and it will take some time, but everyone is really excited about the coming season.”
Diss will begin their 2019/20 campaign with a home game at Mackenders against east London-based Wanstead.
