Bridgend Ravens can confirm that a strategic partnership with local clubs is now underway ahead of the 2013-14 season with the club having invited a number of talented players to attend the first part of pre-season.



Aimed at seeing if the players have what it takes to make it at Premiership level, it shows that the relationships with our junior clubs is growing ever stronger as these players look to prove themselves at the next level.



The selected players include:




Bridgend Athletic


Liam Griffin (Prop), Sean Derrick (No.8), Mike Hathaway (Wing)

Tondu

Cai Llewellyn (Prop), Nick Hopson (Centre)



Kenfig Hill

Ben Jones (Lock), Mikey Kennedy (Full Back)

All players will be receiving an extensive skills and conditioning programme delivered via Jason Larkman, Dan Griffiths and Paul Young during sessions held at Pencoed College, which will involve both gym and on the field work.

Assisting Head Strength & Conditioning Coach Larkman is the familiar face of scrum half Kyle Barrett, who is looking to develop a strength and conditioning. Kyle is also currently developing as a Conditioning Coach with Ospreys' U16 East squad.
