Bury St Edmunds have added two new players to their squad ahead of the new National 3 campaign.
Former St Joseph’s College pupil Shaquille Meyers has joined the Haberden outfit, after a season playing for National 2 team Ampthill, while former Leicester Tigers’ youngster Josh Goldspink, who represented the Midlanders in the Heineken Cup, has also signed.
Back row forward Goldspink moves from Brighton rugby club after spells playing abroad in Europe and Sri Lanka, having seen his spell with Leicester cut short through injury.
Meyers, who plays as a back, was selected for England’s under-18s during his time at St Jo’s Ipswich. He progressed onto Bedford Academy and was captain of the Eastern Counties Under-20s squad last season.
Director of Rugby, Gavin Hogg, said: “These signings demonstrate the level of coaching support we now provide at Bury.

“With our strong links with Northampton Saints and having Saints Academy coach, Jon Curry, as part of our coaching team it ensures our playing squad has contacts and a pathway in place to enable players to progress to the higher levels of the game.”
