A big Victory Park welcome to Sam Hatton, who is replacing Shannon Newsham as first team physio ahead of the 2020/21 season.
The 22-year-old joins us after a season in the sixth tier of English rugby union with Bowden RUFC. A graduate of Salford University, Sam’s work with the Magpies will compliment his full-time physio role for Altius Healthcare.
I’d like to thank Shannon for all her hard work and wish her every success in the future, as well as welcoming Sam to the Magpies. He comes highly recommended to us, and although he is relatively young, he brings a lot of knowledge and experience to the role – Jamie Vermiglio
