Sudbury trio included in Eastern Counties final squad

Sudbury Rugby Club players Fraser Beckett, Tom Summers and Shaun Smith have all been selected as part of Eastern Counties National Under-20s Shield final squad.

The trio received the news this morning that they will travel with the squad to Coventry’s Butts Stadium to face Oxfordshire on Sunday in the competition’s final showpiece (3pm).

After taking part in the final training session on Wednesday evening, the three were left with an anxious wait before hearing the news they were included in the squad that reached the final after a comprehensive 62-17 semi-final success over Cambridge University.
