The Destroyers are pleased to announce our final addition to the coaching staff, previous Club Captain, Connor Crofts.

Connor is returning to the team as a Special Teams and Offensive Assistant after spending 4 years playing for the U.

We wanted to know a bit about Coach Crofts’ playing experience and what he was looking forward to most about being part of the coaching staff. Here’s what he had to say:

”I started playing football when I was 16, first with the Nottingham Caesars and Leicester Falcons junior teams before coming to uni where I’ve spent the last 4 years with The Destroyers. I loved every minute spent playing with the U and I am really excited to have the opportunity to give back as a coach now that I’ve graduated.

I’m looking forward to working with Coach Cliff and the other coaches and hope I can use what I’ve learnt over the last 7 years to help our returning players and the rookies we’ll be bringing in, to improve as much as possible!”

The Destroyers are glad to have Coach Crofts on board for the 2019/20 season!
