We have bolstered the pack with the signing of Adam Malthouse. A back row/2nd row player, who played most of the season in Otley's 1st team last year. Also in the forwards is Sam White, who joined us just after the transfer deadline last year and played the season out in the 2's. He is a Hooker/Back row that has moved up to the area from Old Redcliffians in Bristol.
In the backs we have signed center Michael Robertson, who was part of Derby's league winning side last term. He has also moved into the area through work commitments. Adam's brother Jack Malthouse is an Outside Center/Wing, joins us from Yarnbury and finally Sam Hesketh another Outside Center/Wing, who only took up the game last season but has impressed the coaching staff with his massive improvement, they have asked him to join the senior squad.
All these players will feature in the up coming pre-season games, starting at newly promoted Darlington Mowden Park this Saturday. Then we are home to Stockport on 18th and also home to Keighley on 25th August.
We hope to announce some more new signings in the weeks leading up to the start of the season.
