heard today that we have signed 3 under 16 lads onto the academy gregg mcnally adam ramsden and michael lithgow having played with gregg for a few years and against the other 2 i have to say gregg is a top player good passer and excellent kicking also good in defence lithgow is a strong running forward he doesnt miss mant tackles and adam ramsden is ok but IMO there are better players in his position in the U 6's league and also the 18's but good luck to all of them hope they do well

definatly tyrone is awsome best stand off/scrum half that i have seen round here there are some really good players at kells also hensingham have some very good players there is alot of talent around they just need a chance

there are also some players at U16 level that with the proper training could be very very good

yeah i am not saying kells havent produced some of the best players at whithaven but the comment made by my self that there is talent at over clubs eg
egremont ranger -john Paul brocklebank the best stand off in under 18 rugby round here,he is also gettin a regular start at 1st team in the conference at the age of 17.also for egremont jack Murray was playing 1st team until the rangers were pulled up about playing him as he wasn't 17 as i pointed out in my last comment

wathbrow - jonny machin - has been playing since his 16th birthday at the hightest another level he can i am just sayinthere ismore than just kells that are producing good quality players


i think whitehaven should be looking up at kells u18s for new signings

ashley mcdonald
steve mcmillan
scott nichol
ben ferguson
dean aspinall
shaun flanningan
