Redruth have made seven signings ahead of the new National Two South campaign, including former Plymouth Albion and Exeter Chiefs hooker Tom Cowan-Dickie.

England under-18 international Billy Keast, ex-Truro College captain Kieron Westlake and David Mankee also join.

Former Redruth players Shaun Buzza, Ashley Lawton and Alex Ducker have all returned to the Cornish club.

"I have known Tom for a while and he's always impressed with his tenacity and commitment," said coach Steve Larkins.

"To have these players join us will lead to some hard selection decisions but it shows we are going in the right direction and really want to start the league programme on a high."

Nathan Thomas and Dick Whitney have also joined the coaching team and will be in charge of the second XV this season, who will be competing in a newly-formed league.

The news comes after Damien Cook was appointed as Redruth captain, succeeding Chris Fuca.
