150 up for Gavin

Weston captain Gavin Simpson made his 150th first team appearance when he led his team to victory against Brixham at the Recreation Ground.

WESTON’S captain Gavin Simpson made his 150th first team appearance when he led his team to victory against Brixham at the Recreation Ground last Saturday.

Weston-born Simpson, aged 31, was educated at Churchill School from where he played for Somerset at 18 group level. But before that, the flanker had joined the Seasiders’ Under-16 squad and he eventually became a permanent member of the Colts’ back row.

He duly progressed to senior level, making his first team debut as a replacement at Blackheath in the opening match of the 2000/01 season.

Four weeks later he made his full appearance in the home match against Plymouth Albion. So far, he has scored 11 tries.
