Progressive sports club, Mancunians RL and Manchester Metropolitan University (MMU) are to launch a joint coaching scholarship programme.

The scholarship will see a number of students from MMU work with Mancunians each year to assist with coaching in local schools and in return, Mancunians will pay for the each of the students to achieve a coaching qualification in either Handball or Rugby League and provide valuable coaching experience to the students who take part.

Supporter owned Mancunians run Handball and Rugby League teams and will begin to offer junior teams in both sports throughout the city over the next few months and already work with a number of schools in the Manchester.

Only four years old, the club has made big strides since its inception in 2009. The club has ambitions to move up the Rugby League playing pyramid in the next few years and the club is gearing up for the first league game of the season this weekend against Wigan Bulldogs.

The scholarship programme will see six students per academic year work with Mancunians to receive expert tuition and free coaching qualifications and the programme will be supervised by award winning coach, Vinny Webb who is Director of Sport for Mancunians.

Webb has recently joined the club as a board member and brings a wealth of experience to the club, having been coach of Russia and Georgia international Rugby League sides over recent years, was Performance Director for Student Rugby League and coached the British Amateur side to success in the 2000 Emerging Nations Final over Italy.

Excellent news. The more cooperation between clubs in the Manchester/Salford area the better.

Will Mancunians be supporting their local Super League club on Friday.

Best of luck with this project. Vinny Webb name rings a bell. So getting him in there as your front development man sounds progressive. Sounds like your organisation should be working closely with what is now happening over at Barton & Salford City Reds.

Always good to hear about local RL developments. I like it that the club is also offering handball. That was a neat move following on from the interest in the game at the Olympics.

Looks like East Manchester Rangers have got in there


from east manchester rangers arlfc


East Manchester Rangers have teamed up with Salford City Reds Foundation and their Manchester Development Officer, Andy Connaughton to develop East Manchester Rangers under 13’s side. Building on the hard work already carried out in the City by the foundation, the under 13’s side will be a great addition to the East Manchester Club. Andy has been coaching in Manchester for almost 2 years and he said “after almost 2 years of developing Rugby League in Schools throughout Manchester, it’s great to see a club being developed at Belle Vue and I’m happy to be a part of it. I’m looking forward to the challenge ahead and I hope that some of the players will be Salford City Reds Super League stars of the future”.

The team will play in the North West Counties League and training takes place at Belle Vue Leisure Centre, Gorton every Tuesday 5pm-6pm (currently indoors), sessions are free.


We are now happy to announce what our first open age Rugby League season will entail, and after much deliberation and discussions with coaching staff and RFL league officials, we have chosen for our first season to enter the Rugby Football Leagues entry division. The division is made up of 20 teams ranging from newly established clubs, such as ourselves, right through to established clubs wanting to expand the number of teams they enter into competitions. As a new club, we want to make sure that we develop the club properly and build a club for the future, and unlike many before us, we don’t to take players from other clubs to ensure that we fulfil our own fixtures. The whole ethos of our club is to encourage peop...le that live, work, and learn in Manchester, and the surrounding area, to play for East Manchester Rangers. So with that in mind, we would like to invite all potential players 16+ with an interest in playing Rugby League, to a welcome morning on Saturday 9th March (10.30am start). This first welcome day/training session will be led by Steve Molloy and the committee, allowing us to tell you much more about our club. It will allow us to find out more about what you want to see in a community rugby club, and provide you with your first taste of Rugby League in East Manchester. Our first season is not only about playing Rugby League, but about building a culture of being involved in RL as players, coaches, volunteers and supporters, so, throughout the season, we’ll be organising trips to major Rugby League events such as Magic Weekend, Challenge Cup Final, Grand Final, World Cup games and the World Cup final. If you don’t want to play, but would like to get involved in the running of the club, coaching at the club or volunteering with us then please feel free to come down and talk to us on the 9th March.


We are delighted to announce this morning, that we have entered into a partnership with Manchester Leisure Trust/Manchester City Council, which will see us playing our home games at Belle Vue Leisure Centre for many years to come. Belle Vue Leisure Centre was the host venue for Hockey at the 2012 Commonwealth games and will soon be the new home to Manchester Giants Basketball team. The venue is undergoing major redevelopment as we speak and will soon have many more state of the art facilities, so we are looking forward to a bright future at the facility. Come back later today as we will be announcing our first open age fixtures and welcome morning.

Hopefully the Reds can revive the Broughton Rangers revival too. There's a distinct lack of clubs round the Broughton, Ordsall, Seedley area.

The developers of the New Broughton regeneration project were supposed to include a pitch in the plans and a team did play a season or two but afaik was mainly a jolly for local RFL staff.

Don't think they ever really got into the community. Shame as a lot of kids in that area could really benefit
