FYLDE rugby club field a number of their new recruits as they entertain Premiership side Sale for a pre-season friendly at the Woodlands tomorrow.

Among those who get their first run-out in Fylde colours are Chris Johnson, Scott 
Barrow, Warren Spragg, Ben Vernon, Dan Birchall and Rob Taylor.

In addition, Roger Banks has his first game in a Fylde shirt since his return from a player-coach role at Fleetwood RFC.

Coach Mark Nelson,

“It will be a first outing for our new signings.

“It will also be a great opportunity for some trialists and younger players to have a run and show what they can do against top opposition.

“And it’s great value, costing just £5 for admission and £3 for concessions.”

Sale, the premier club in the North West, will be fielding a mixed squad of highly promising Jets youngsters and fringe first team players.

The squad will include 
Cillian Willis, Aston Croall, Will Cliff, Tom Brady, Johnny Leota and Nick McLeod.
