Warnes back in business at Beccles

LONDON 2NE: Andy Warnes is set to pull on a Beccles shirt once again after parting company with Norwich.

After being away from Beef Meadow for a number of years, Warnes' return is timely and gives the players a boost as they bid to secure their first win of the season at a higher level.

The knowledge and leadership Warnes brings to the club will be a major asset and so too will be the experience he had with Norwich over the past two seasons.

Warnes will also take up the role of steering and managing the direction of the senior playing squad, taking up the post of director of rugby while working closely alongside head coach Ian Rees.

After throwing away the chance of a first league win last week, Beccles know that nothing less than maximum points will be required when they take on fellow strugglers Harlow at Beef Meadow tomorrow.

Skipper Lake has pulled no punches with the squad this week by telling them that this is a must-win game if they are to fight their way out of the relegation zone. He has also made it clear to the big names of the team that it's time to deliver.

Lake looks likely to have the luxury of selecting from a near full strength team. With Johnston still doubtful Cornelius looks set to start in the second row, which will add additional pace and line-out options to the pack. Behind them Rix looks set for a return in the back row.
