Redruth: Head coach Steve Larkins impressed by youngsters

Redruth RFC
Redruth are ninth in National Two South with three wins from seven games

Redruth boss Steve Larkins says the club's crop of new young players show there is a bright future for the team.

Jack Kessell, Robin Wedlake and Tommy Phillips have all made their way into the squad in National Two South this season.

"We've got some guys in there who could play National League rugby for years to come," Larkins told BBC Radio Cornwall.

"We had four, maybe even five, players on Saturday playing against Taunton who were 20 or below."

Larkins says he is impressed by the attitude that his young players are bringing to the squad.

"It's promising for the club when you've got these guys coming through and they're playing with no fear and are kind of having a go," he said.

"You need to be bringing some of the youngsters through."

Redruth host newly-promoted Bishops Stortford on Saturday having won just one of their last five matches.

"They're a target team," added Larkins. "But there are no bad teams in this league any more.

"They're going to come down and will want to win after a couple of close games for them in the last few weeks.

"Our defence has got to be switched on on Saturday, it's going to be a tight one."
