Scots make three changes to starting line-up for local derby at Ealing

11th September 2015

London Scottish have made three changes to their starting line-up ahead of their trip to Ealing Trailfinders on Saturday afternoon.

Chevvy Pennycook replaces Rory Bartle as blindside flanker, whilst Matt Williams and Peter Lydon take the places of Andrew Turner and Craig Jackson.

Jason Harries, who scored in his first match for the club moves to the left wing with Williams putting on the 14 shirt for the first time this campaign.

On the bench David Cherry, James Hallam and David Young offer an entire front-row alternative, whilst Alex Brown will also look to make an impact as a substitute. Winger Miles Mantella will be hoping to make his first appearance of the season after recovering from a knee injury.

The Scots suffered defeat to Moseley in their Greene King IPA Championship season opener, and Head Coach Peter Richards is expecting a reaction from his side.

Richards said: “We had some good individual performances last week but we’re looking to get back on track this weekend, it’s a local derby so it’s a challenge to look forward to.”

“We’re pleased to have Matt back from injury, and Pete and Chevvy also get the chance to start after coming off the bench against Moseley.”

London Scottish squad to play Ealing Trailfinders at Vallis Way on Saturday, 12th September, 15:00 kick-off.
