Team info

Welcome to 'The Mighty Herons Academy” team page.

We welcome all players, no previous rugby experience necessary.

The Herons Academy are expecting a bumper season. Already turn out for training has exceeded all expectations with virtually the full squad turning out Tuesday evenings.

The squad has a deep Herons pedigree, with some playing for Wanstead since they were 5 or 6, many are already team mates for nearly a decade. Numbers are strong and this is likely to be a rich source of new blood for the senior team. Some of these boys have been looking forward to that step up for years. They come with the largest support group of fans (critics) who are happy to stand on the sidelines in all weathers.

The squad is over seen this season by, the more laid back than a very hairy possum Nick Luxmore, And the incredibly understated Mario Tavasoli. A blend made only at Centenary Fields! They are assisted by Sid Smith and Kevin (smoothy) Cottrell with the coaching and Managed by Jeremy Turner, all have been with these boys for years and will help keep the season moving in the right direction.

Our coaches and officials are CRB checked and have coaching qualifications and rugby experience.
