Welcome to the club Coops

6 months ago By Jon Hill

6ft 4 inch back five forward Lewis Cooper joins from the Royal Navy

Highly rated 6 ft 4 inch Back five forward Lewis Cooper becomes the third summer signing of the Cockles, and is being sponsored by Devon Contractors.

Cooper, capped by the Royal Navy last season against the Royal Nationale , is happy anywhere in the back five and is renowned for his ball carrying abilities. A team mate of Richard Cadywould in the Royal Navy squad, and of Ryan Morris for the Royal Marines, the Lympstone based forward is a welcome addition to the squad and is sure to fit in well at the Cockles.

Head Coach Jon Hill comments:

"We have tracked Lewis' progress for the last few months and were alerted to him by Rich Cadywould, who was also in this years Royal Navy senior squad. He is young, disciplined and ambitious and has a great attitude and I think he will fit in well to the squad which is massively important. We need to establish a high work ethic in the pack and in the team, and Lewis fits that bill. Whilst he was disappointed to lose his place to Fijian International Sam Matavesi in the Navy squad for the final two games of the season he received rave reviews for his performances against the French Navy , Richmond and Hampshire."

We are delighted that Devon Contractors continue their long association with Exmouth RFC and will become player sponsors of Lewis, as well as continuing as shirt sponsors this coming season.

Regards

Jon
