Last Saturday was not only the last game of the season for the 1st XV but it was also the last game in a Tarleton shirt for two of our 1st Team stars, Captain Jamie Bantleman and Frankie Skofič.
Jamie is leaving the club after amazing service as a player and more recently as the Captain of the 1st XV, to focus on his family and ventures away from rugby as a Personal & Online Fitness & Transformation Specialists! As a player Jamie has given everything for the club when he has pulled on the shirt and as a captain Jamie has lead with pride, lead by example and has forged a band of brothers bond between the squad that is clear for all to see!
Frankie will be leaving us for pastures new after 17 years at Carr Lane! Coming through the Mini, Juniors and Colts sections Frankie has excelled as a player in every age group he has played in and will be as big a miss off the pitch as he is on it! Frankie will be moving on for a new challenge and will be joining older brother George at Blackburn RUFC!
Both lads will be greatly missed by everyone at TRUFC!! We would like to thank you for your amazing service to the club and everything you have contributed both on and off the field and we wish you both all the luck in the world for everything you do from now on!!
