New signings recruited for Cambuslang
Former Hull RFC Super League player Chad McGlame has joined Cambuslang RFC for the 2016/17 season.
Coats Park coach Jamie Seery recruited the half-back as well as Scottish international Louis Senter to the team who will be in the squad for the first league game of the season away to Paisley (Saturday, 3pm kick off).
Both players have played with the full Scotland international rugby league side.
McGlame played with Super League side Hull FC and was part of the Easterhouse Panthers set up last year.
He progressed through the Scotland Rugby League pathway, appearing with the U16 Youth World Cup team in Moscow, the Scotland U18 European Shield squad in Prague in 2008 and Scotland‘A’against France in 2010.
Commenting on the match against Paisley RFC, Seery said: “They are a decent opposition and we should, given the players we’ve got, be able to win.”
Cambuslang Rugby Club have added experience to their ranks in preparation for the new season which gets underway this weekend.
Coach Jamie Seery, who will take charge of the team in his first competitive league match against Paisley RFC on Saturday, has recently added two more players to the 25-man squad.
Chad McGlame and Louis Senter, who have both played with the full Scotland international rugby league side, will join the Cambus campaign.
Senter won the European Cup with Scotland in 2014 and played with Hull KR before moving to Halifax.
He also played with Whitecraigs last season before moving to Cambuslang.
McGlame played with Super League side Hull FC and was part of the Easterhouse Panthers squad last year.
Cambus were relegated to the BT West Division Two and are aiming to bounce back to the league above with a new man in charge.
Speaking to the Reformer this week, Seery said:“We are confident going into it. We had a game on Saturday and lost by two points, 31-29 against Grangemouth, which was the first competitive 15 a-side game we’ve had. It was important we get that fixture in before we take Paisley on.
“We had new players in on Saturday who all performed well so that has given us more options for this weekend.
“Preparation has been going well for the season, we’ve been training twice a week.
“I don’t know much about Paisley but I know one of their backs coaches and one of their players I’ve played with before.
“They are a decent opposition and we should, given the players we’ve got, be able to win.”
The Coats Park side will compete in the league consisting of Stewartry, Paisley, Millbrae, McLaren, Lenzie, Cumnock, Cumbernauld, Clydebank and Waysiders Drumpellier.
