Canterbury head coach Danny Vaughan rated the club’s visit to Yorkshire over the Bank Holiday weekend a resounding success after watching his side pile up more than 100 points against Yorkshire Division 1 club Malton.

The game on Sunday followed a valuable training session the previous day with National 3 North outfit Darlington Mowden Park at Scarborough and Vaughan was delighted with some of the work put in.

He said: “Malton were obviously not strong enough for us but it was great for the younger players to build their confidence and for the seniors to put into practice some of the work we have done on the training ground.”

A much tougher prospect awaits Canterbury on Saturday when they take two sides to meet Blackheath. The second team game will kick-off at 1.30pm and the senior side at 3pm, with both games played at Well Hall, Blackheath’s new ground

There will be a distinct European flavour about the Canterbury squad as seven Belgian players are training with the club this week and will be given game time.

Vaughan added: “I met the Belgian coach while I was on a course earlier this summer.

“He he asked me if he could bring his players to Canterbury to study our methods and it could prove a useful link for us.”
