In addition to last week’s recruitment news, we are pleased to announce our next 2 signings for the upcoming season.
Firstly we have signed Kieran Duffin, a Scrum Half that joins us from Western Australia. Prior to his time abroad, Kieran was a product of the Wasps AASE program and also Bedford Blues Academy. He also had a number of 1st team appearances for Ampthill.
Head coach Richie Williams says, “Kieran will give us another option at scrum half. He is a player that I have watched on a number of occasions and I have always been impressed with his excellent leadership and organisational qualities. Along with Cam Keenan and young Fin Creighton, we once again have real strength in depth and variety in a key position.”
The 2nd player is experienced campaigner and front row forward Tom Harrison who joins us from National 2 team South Leicester.
Tom has played for a number of National 1 and Championship teams including Plymouth Albion and DMP. He has also represented England Counties and the Barbarians.
Commenting on Harrison, Williams said “I had the pleasure of coaching alongside Tom last season and I was really impressed by not only his playing exploits, but also his attention to detail in his coaching. Tom will join us as a player coach with an emphasis on the scrum. He is moving rapidly along the coaching ladder and holds a position at Leicester Tigers Academy. Tom is another character that I feel can carry on the strong tradition of player development at Cambridge.”
