Rutherglen Reformer - - The Back Page -

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.
