Blackheath v Loughborough Students – Team News

Posted by

Round 12 of the 2016/17 National League One campaign sees Blackheath take on Loughborough Students at Well Hall. Kick of is at 3.00 pm.

Loughborough have had a mixed start to the season, winning five of their eleven matches with one draw to leave them seventh in the table.

Their last two away matches saw them suffer heavy defeats at Plymouth Albion and Moseley, but back on campus last Saturday they hit form with eleven tries in their 76-30 victory against Macclesfield.

The Blackheath squad for tomorrow sees a home debut for hooker Mike Perks, and a familiar name appearing at open-side in the absence of Chris Walker.

Leo Fielding returns at full-back.

For those arriving at Well Hall early, the Bandits will be kicking off at 12.30 pm against local rivals Charlton Park (pitch 3) while the Club U12s will be providing the curtain raiser to the main event.

A full list of forthcoming matches involving Club sides is listed further down.
