Academy look ahead to Army challenge

The Academy welcome the Army U23 to Vallis Way on Sunday October 16th in what is set to be a serious test for the young Trailfinders.

Our last game saw a convincing win against the RAF Hawks in September and there have been some impressive performances with the Men’s section in Zoo Shield League 2 which included a 40 point hall for the Academy players against previously unbeaten Old Albanians.

Centre Luca Townshend has been in good form scoring a pair of tries yesterday while U19 prop Kadeem Collins is impressing with his work rate and ball carrying ability.

Prop Zaki Chamnaoui, No8 Marcus Lowe and Centre Chris Hitchcock will all return from injury to be available for selection while Hooker Will Day looks set to make his first appearance of the season.

As always we expect a testing encounter against the Army and have always been impressed with the leadership on display and the boys love the physical challenge we’ve come to expect.

Kick off is at 14:30 and it would be a huge boost for the team to see as many of you on the touchline watching as possible.
