Fylde’s 2017-18 National One season ended where it began, with defeat against Cambridge. That September day must seem a long time ago to a young Fylde squad that lost 27 out of 30 games this season to finish 34 points adrift at the bottom of National One.

Signings bring stability for final fixtures says Fylde coach Spragg
Head coach Warren Spragg is hopeful that stability will breed some confidence for the remainder of the season at Fylde RFC, with most of the players expected to take the field at Bishop’s Stortford tomorrow now signed up for next season.
There were plenty of promising signs for the future as Fylde contemplate life in National Two (North) next season, though they are sure to finish bottom of National One after another disappointing defeat.
