Euan Dingwall (flanker), Ryan Headington (centre) Rob Smith (scrum half), Olly Venni (halfback), Patrick Marmion (back row), have all made the step up from the U18's to train and play with our Development side.
Over the last month they have been joined by new 1st XV recruits Grant Lowe (hooker - Upminster), Seb Clark (back row - Loughborough Uni), Simon Johnson (back row - South Leicester), Alex Leo (number 8 - Barking), John Semple (Centre - Hawkes Bay, NZ), Charlie Mayou (Wing - Unattached), and Mike Stanway (Wing - Old Albanians).
Rowland Winter, DOR, states, "It is important to keep growing & developing the 1st XV squad and all the senior sides of the club, we are rapidly growing as a club and we have now seen over 60 new players join our adult playing sides this season."
"To be able to add to the 1st XV & Development squad with talent that has come through the mini & youth age groups is a great credit to the coaches that have put in the hard work to develop these players on Sunday mornings."
Mike Stanway and Grant Lowe have already made their 1st XV debut, and new centre John Semple is in line to make his this weekend.
