PLAYER EXODUS FROM SCARBOROUGH RUGBY CLUB

29 Jul

TOM HICKS, SAM DAWSON, MATTY YOUNG (Back Row) CADE ROBINSON (front row)

With the new season just over four weeks away Scarborough has seen an exodus from its playing ranks which leaves the Seasiders struggling to find replacements for six first team players who have departed. Youth Development Officer (YDO) and star fullback Jimmy Perrett has returned to his native Australia at the end of his contract/visa as has popular hooker Sam Dawson. Kiwi Manning Smith won’t return from injury and Kiwi second row Cade Robinson has disappointingly moved on to North One rivals York. His second row partner Tom Hicks is reportedly joining the army and finally wing/centre Matty Young is taking a sabbatical from rugby due to business commitments

Club recruitment officer Nick Ingham has issued the following statement: “The announcement of the departure of Jimmy, Cade and Sam is of course disappointing but not unexpected and we have planned to replace them for some time. I wish the three of them the very best of luck in the future and thank them for their time with us. I hope they’ve found value in their time at Scarborough.


Regarding new players for next season we have three new players who are pretty much confirmed including two U.K. players who are moving to the area. 


The management team have been working hard on recruitment since the middle of last season. Over the years we have built up a great network of recruitment sources and have been lucky to have been supported by ex-overseas players who have recommended fellow players to come and join us. It’s not easy for overseas players to play in Europe as it comes at some expense to them but we are confident in our ability to offer a rugby club that is true to the values of the game and where non-local players are made to feel welcome“.

The first of the incoming players Aussie utility back Angus Frend arrived in Scarborough last week and is pictured below.
