Cambridge Rugby Club has announced its first signings for the new summer.
The new signings will see them bring on the trio of Pierre Peres, Henry Peck and Cameron Keenan onto the team.
In addition to that,Euan Kingdom colts’ player has been promoted to the first team squad in anticipation of the forthcoming National League One campaign.
In regards to new additions, there has been little news emanating from Volac Park but Ross Stewart, the club’s director of Rugby has been quite a busy man behind the scenes.
One of the signings, Peck is a 20 year old prop who arrives at the club after spending the last two years at Ampthill.
A former Millfield School pupil, Peck has represented England at the under-16 level.
Stewart had this to say about him: “I worked with Henry at Northampton Saints, he was an outstanding scrummager and has the attributes that we want in a young prop and player.
“He wants to step up to the next level, and he has seen at Cambridge that we have given players the opportunities.
“I’m looking forward to working with him again.” He concluded.
Another of the new signings Peres is a 26 year old scrum half and before signing onto Cambridge, he has been with Bury St Edmunds.
Towards the end of the last season, he came down with injury which thus had a negative impact on his game time. He however was part of the team that came off victorious over Cambridge towards the end of the 2015/16 campaign.
23 year old Keenan is another addition to the squad, and a scrum-half joining all the way from Olney.
He has previously spent two years at North Otago in New Zealand, and spells at Blackheath, Bedford and Ampthill as well. These were unfortunately disrupted by injury.
