Doncaster Mustangs’ new head coach Paul Weston has vowed to get them winning again after a difficult 2014.

The Green and Golds failed to win a single game last season in a tough BAFANL Premiership North division.

But Weston, who was confirmed as the club’s new boss last week, is confident he can turn things round.

“After a disappointing 2014 season I want to get the Mustangs back on track and back in the habit of winning,” said Weston.

“We’ve been recruiting hard and will be adding new players to the squad over the coming weeks.

“These new signings will add to the massive potential this squad has following a successful series of rookie days that were held throughout the autumn.

“I want the Mustangs to get back to playing an exciting brand of offensive football this season, so teams can expect an aerial bombardment when they play us in 2015.

“This, matched with a vastly improved defence, will help us get back to winning ways.”

Weston, a former Great Britain youth international, has been with the Mustangs as a wide receiver for the past five seasons.

He also has experience of playing at Hull University and Farnham Knights.

Mustangs finished bottom the 2014 Premiership North Standings with nine defeats from nine.

This year will see the club operate in Division One of the Northern Football Conference. The season starts in April.

Mustangs hold training sessions every Sunday (10am-2pm) at Doncaster School for the Deaf.
