Pre-Season Update

Squad Update

As we approach the pre-season friendlies, the squad has been put through it's paces to help it get upto speed.

New (and old) signings have bedded in well, all adding something to the squad. A run down of new players:

Darren Moore (Scrum Half) - Returning back to the club after a spell at Cirencester.

Bryce White (Back Row) - You might remember Bryce being a prop but due to a longstanding back problem, he will be in the back row.

Lee Hathway (Back Three) - Lee left us to go to Cinderford but due to a change of work commitments last year, Lee returned to play a few matches. Lee is now back, although having damaged his collarbone in training.

Jake Worthington (Back Row) - Jake featured in the Combi Cup Final for the 2nd XV after training with us towards the end of the year. Currently at Uni, Jake previously played for Bury St Edmunds.

Richard Hance (Back Row) - Strong ball carrier joins us from Cheltenham North, looking to step up a level.

Dan Burnham (Prop) - Joins from Cheltenham Saracens, with a strong pedigree. Dan has previously played in Australia, looking to add to his experience at Old Pats.

Jasper Frost (Prop) - Having previously played for the 1st XV, Jasper moved home but has returned with a new job, strengthing the front row resources.

Tom Eddolls (Half Back) - Joining us from Gordon League where Tom was player-coach, Tom brings added strength in half back position.

Jason Rickard (Prop) - Jason, or Jaybo, has had previous spells at the club but left due to work commitments. Jaybo is back, bringing a real character to the squad.

Flo Lacrampe (Wing) - Having moved to Cheltenham, after playing at a good standard in France and on the Seven's Circuit, Flo is an excellent addition to the back three.

Steffan Morgan (Centre/Wing) - Coming to Cheltenham for work, the centre/wing arrives with a strong pedigree of rugby from Wales, playing for Newbridge.

Kristian Taft (Centre) - Arrives having played 1st team for Drybrook for a number of years, the ex-UoG student comes highly recommended from UoG Director of Rugby and player, Chris Downes.

Mac Zishiri (Half Back) - Another strong addition to the squad, Mac comes with a CV of high level sevens from the Army.

Alongside this, we will have the next generation of Colts coming through, with some real talented players joining the Seniors.

This page will be updated as and when we have any confirmation of new players.
