Boyce is a level-three RFU coach and will work with the club, which plays in Essex 
Division Two.

They also have a second development team which is ready to take on new players and chairman Tim Sullivan hopes the club can continue to grow under Boyce’s coaching.

“I especially want to welcome Adrian Boyce, who is a level-three RFU coach.

“Together we want to see this club go from strength to strength in the league and next summer we will go to Manchester to join our fellow rugby teams in the Bingham Cup, which is the largest rugby tournament outside the World Cup,” he said.

Boyce is keen to get to work immediately and is hoping to attract more players to the long-established gay club.

He said: “It’s a pleasure to join the Kings Cross Steelers in this Olympic sporting year, after the players worked so hard to win the Union Cup this summer.

“If you want to be a part of this amazing club, then I can promise you challenging and worthwhile training sessions, with action-packed ideas to enhance your fitness and your playing skills.”

Ahead of the season, the club kicks off their pre-season on August 2 and is opening its doors to newcomers and experienced players.

Based 15 minutes away from central London at East London rugby club, Kings Cross currently have 80 players on their books .

Sullivan added: “The Steelers are recognised as one of the most inclusive clubs in London and have become a valid choice for local players who want high-quality rugby, combined with a great social life.

“We are seen as a well run and organised rugby club and are fully supported by Essex RFU.”
