Cooper and Mills in for Senior Debuts

8 months ago By Jon Hill

Summer signing Lewis (pictured) and former Colt Ned Mills are both set to make their debuts tomorrow away at Bracknell.

Cooper, sponsored by Devon Contractors, has returned from the Royal Navy Senior Rugby tour of the US , and has since been on duty. His delayed return comes at a vital time for the Cockles, and is a big boost with James Harris and Dave Bargent's continued absence from the side.

Ned Mills has come up through the junior section of the club and has been a standout player in the 2nd xv this season. His inclusion is on the back of some eye catching man of the match performances and is richly deserved.

A notable absentee tomorrow is fly half and player coach Tom Whelan, who is still suffering from concussion following an incident involving a Bournemouth player, who has since been cited for his actions. Whilst this is a big blow , We are boosted by the return from injury of influential centre Henry Goldson, who replaces the unavailable Mark Wathes.

With wingers Matt Ryan, Matt Dayment and Harvey Ridgeway unavailable , the experienced Richard Cadywould earns a recall to the starting line up in his preferred full back position, and is sure to add another kicking dimension to the squad.

1. Nick Halse
2. Davy McGregor
3. Tom Barnard
