The Falcons have been busy in the off season. Following on from the two years rebuilding, they are now ready to make a push to the top again.
The ambition of the 2009 Div 2 champions is apparent with two of their off season appointments, noteably the return of Senior Team Manager, Guy Kersey, and Head Coach, Lester Hopewell (left) – the same partnership that took the Falcons to Division 2 title and the Division 1 playoffs in 2009 and 2010 respectively.
The appointment of Kersey and Hopewell shows the ambition has returned to the Leicester Club who are now built on a solid platform thanks to the hard work of Chairman, Saul Freer.
Coach Hopewell is also planning to bolster the squad with some returning players who started playing during his first tenure as Falcons. Head Coach, Hopewell has been a winner at whichever club he has been at, and is planning on continuing this with his second term at the Falcons. He is also appointing some highly talented coaches; his Brother Johnny Hopewell will be coaching the Offensive line and Ron Mason is installed as Defensive Coordinator, while player favourite Bernie Hackshaw returns to coach Defensive line
