The first practice session for the Morecambe Bay Storm American football club is being held at Salt Ayre Sports Centre next Sunday, February 28, between 2pm and 4pm.

The non-contact trials will be held on an artificial pitch with suitable footwear and clothing required.

The club, the first in the area for non-university students for 25 years, is hoping to build towards entry into a competitive league in 2017.

No previous experience is required for those wanting to attend what the Storm are dubbing ‘Rookie Day’.

Coach Don ‘Scud’ Fairhurst said: “We are fully enthused with the prospect of taking a team of relative novices and turning them in to competitive league team for the 2017 summer season.”
