Player Update (2)

July 9th, 2018

Pre-season training is picking up in intensity and the players are responding really well. We are particularly pleased to see three long-term absentees back in the fold, with Will Davidson and Sam Gaudie returning from injury and Will Bell back training again after a couple of years of family commitments.

The following new players have now signed up: –

Ben Leacock – A 6’8” second row from Kendal keen to step up a level. Ben has been attracting interest from National League clubs in Lancashire but opted for Wharfedale and is loving the Wharfedale experience.

George Martin – A young prop out of Sedbergh who is studying at Leeds Beckett and has played National 2 rugby for Huddersfield. He was recommended to us by Dan Harrison at Sedbergh.

Kristian Sharples – A friend of Reece Ward from his junior days at Old Brodleians, Kristian is a versatile wing/full-back who has played for both Otley and Huddersfield in National 2.

Together with last week’s three new boys (see their photographs below), this is the busiest close-season for signings that we have had for a long time and the coaches are working on one or two more. There is lots of energy and enthusiasm at training so please do try to get down on a Tuesday/Thursday evening or Saturday morning to sample the atmosphere.
