Honiton RFC have made a major signing ahead of the forthcoming 2018/19 campaign.

The new man at Allhallows is Alex Brooks, who has joined the Lacemen’s coaching staff.

Brooks is an experienced fly half who has played for Cullompton since he was a junior.

He has been their first choice number ten for many years and he is a well-respected manager of the game from what is an undoubted key position.

Given his experience, Alex has decided he is now looking for a new challenge and very much wants to get into coaching whilst still having the opportunity to still play.

This ‘player-coaching’ role gives him the ideal opportunity to do that and he is very much welcomed by Honiton and with a strong set of players, all remaining at Honiton from last season, there is an air of optimism for the Lacemen to build on last year’s on-the-field successes.
