Academy skipper Marcus Lowe looks set to make his first appearance at National League level with our partner club Henley Hawks this Saturday when they take on Worthing Raiders at Dry Leas.
Marcus joins current and former Academy players Louis Flynn, Dyneal Fessal, Matt Killeen, Tyler Bush, Zi Alexis and Zaki Chamnaoui who have now played at Level 4 of the RFU League structure.
Academy Director John Lacey said ” This is great achievement for Marcus and is thoroughly deserved. He is another Ealing lad who has progressed through the Emerging Player Group, Senior Academy and played with the Men’s section at the club before moving out on loan. He has worked extremely hard over the last 3 seasons and has taken on board all the feedback from the coaching team. He learned loads during his time with the Pro Squad last season and we thank Ben and all the coaches for their support. This is another step along the road for Marcus and I’m sure he will approach making the improvements he needs to move to National 1 with the same effort he has always shown.”
