Nesbitt added to Cockles Squad

1 year ago By Jon Hill

Former Ospreys academy and Bridgend scrum half Owen Nesbitt becomes a Cockle

Former Ospreys academy and Bridgend scrum half Owen Nesbitt becomes the latest player to join the Cockles and is being sponsored by Pinnacle Photo Agency.

24 year old Nesbitt was recommended to the Cockles by former prop Will Norton, now of Plymouth Albion and has been training with the Cockles for the past two weeks.

Studying his teacher qualification, Nesbitt is new to the area having studied and played at U.W.I.C (Cardiff). Having moved to Exeter he is a welcome addition to Exmouth and has already settled in well with his team-mates.

Attack Coach Tom Whelan comments:

"We are pleased to welcome Owen to the club and feel he can add to what we already have here. He is a lively nine with a very good skill set and has shown up well in training. He is sure to push for selection in the coming games and will bring out the best in those around him.

"We are indebted to the help of Phil Mingo from Pinnacle for their kind player sponsorship"
