Two New Signings

October 7th, 2018

We are delighted to bring supporters up to date with two exciting signings since the start of the season.

Will Edwards (above) made his debut at centre in the pre-season friendly with Rotherham Titans and registered with the club just in time for our first league match at Peterborough Lions, where he started at 10 and kicked two conversions in the 26-12 win. Further good performances at home to Sedgley Park and in the defeat at Hull Ionians after missing two games with injury mark Will out as a player of great promise. Originally in the junior ranks at Selby RUFC, Will is currently studying at Durham University where he is a close friend of Will Lawn.

Jack Blakeney-Edwards (above) is a 10/12 who joined the club in early October and kicked 14 points in an assured debut against Preston Grasshoppers. Originally from London, Jack moved to Kendal as a youngster and played in the juniors at Kirkby Lonsdale before earning a rugby scholarship to Durham School and being picked up for the Newcastle Falcons Academy. As a student in Leeds, he played for Otley and then signed for Darlington Mowden Park where, despite limited 1st XV opportunities, he was selected for the Yorkshire County squad in 2018 and greatly impressed our coaching duo of Jon Feeley and Jon Skurr. Jack spent the summer playing for Sydney club Gordon Highlanders in the New South Wales Shute Shield and, on his return, played a couple of games for Kendal before deciding to commit to Wharfedale.
