Callum Thorndike gives us the lowdown on the new Aspatria Coach


I'm very happy to be taking over and hope that only good things will come, we have a lot of young players here and that can mean only good things for the future.

Aspatria Hornets are pleased to announce that former Auckland Warriors Prop Forward Hitro Okesene has agreed to take over as the coach of the club.

He played 5 times for the New Zealand national team and was also capped by Western Samoa and American Samoa. He played for Carlisle RL between 1989-92 and most notably the Auckland Warriors for three seasons between 1995-97. He most recently played for Workington Town (2001-03) where he finished his career and has also coached local powerhouse, Ellenborough Rangers.

He will be assisted by Hornets' veterans Richard Holliday and Stewart Reynolds as the club look to bounce back from the recent lockdown and get back to playing competitive rugby again.

Okesene commented "I'm very happy to be taking over and hope that only good things will come, we have a lot of young players here and that can mean only good things for the future."

All at the club welcome Hitro and wish him the best of luck in his new role.
