Two Weston players reached personal milestones in last week’s match against Old Redcliffians.

TWO Weston players, prop David Price and wing Matthew Watkins reached personal milestones in last week’s match at Old Redcliffians.

Weston-born Price made his 100th senior appearance having joined the club at Under-15 level and, at the time was in the Somerset 15 and 16 groups.

HE became a prominent member of the club’s colts squad before making his first team debut as a replacement at St Ives in November 2007. His first start was at Barnstaple in September 2008. He has scored three tries.

Watkins, aged 26, born in Bristol and educated at Nailsea School, made his 65th first team appearance to qualify for his club blazer badge.

WESTON rugby is mourning the death of former prop forward Mike Campbell, who passed away last Friday at the age of 64.
