Rising Stars join Newcastle Falcons’ ‘ACE’ Programme

Following the exciting news of Trevor Davison linking up with the England Summer Training Squad yesterday, we’ve had more good news from our U16 squad.
Sam Green and Ewan Brown have been accepted into the Newcastle Falcons’ ‘ACE’ scheme at Gosforth Academy, which produces a valuable pipeline of players for the first team squad and beyond.
The duo will get full time rugby coaching alongside subjects at BTEC and A-Levels. The ACE programme has already helped to nurture professional players including George McGuigan, Callum Chick, Tom Marshall and Morgan Passman.
Paul Vinnicombe has developed the U16 squad into a fine group from scratch and must take huge pride in this fantastic news. Well done Paul Vinnicombe and your fellows coaches for your efforts over the years.
We wish these two fine young men all the best in their future rugby development and hopefully you’ll still be able to play for Blaydon Academy at some point, which is going from strength to strength.
