Pertemps Bees launch new community scheme

PERTEMPS Bees, the borough's top rugby side, are launching a new community scheme to help youngsters become more active.

PERTEMPS Bees, the borough's top rugby side, are launching a new community scheme to help youngsters become more active.

Despite suffering relegation to National Two, Russell Earnshaw's men have now turned into a full-time team, and a large portion of the squad are contracted to eight hours a week coaching.

Earnshaw has been coaching at Solihull School alongside new fly half Mark Woodrow but leading the new community initiatives are Alex Davidson and flanker Andy Daish.

Lock Davidson who did a sports science degree at Hartpury College and a masters in sports business management is hoping to start a tag league as well as helping disabled and disadvantaged children.

"The list is endless. If you go from doing nothing to doing something, you feel you have achieved and I think we could do a lot," said the 27-year-old.

Earnshaw feels that the scheme will be beneficial to both parties.

"It's all about getting out there and spreading the word and the flip side, the main thing, is helping youngsters with rugby, coaching and healthy lifestyles."
