KENNEDY BACK FOR SECOND SPELL

By Rhyd Cole | 04/07/2018

Having recently returned to Wales after a spell in Australia, Bridgend Ravens are delighted to announce the signing of back Mikey Kennedy.

No stranger to Bridgend supporters, Kennedy turned out for the club seven times between 2013 and 2015 earlier in his career. Capable of playing across the back line, and having spent the last three years in Australia he returned at the tail end of the last season to help his hometown club, Kenfig Hill end their National League Division 1 West Central campaign in fine form and on signing ahead of a pivotal 2018/19 season, Kennedy was looking forward to the challenge that the Principality Premiership presents.

“I appreciate the opportunity Bridgend have given me to return to the club and hope to make a big impact in the upcoming season. I’m really looking forward to pre-season getting started.”
said the 24 year old.

Head Coach Matt Silva was delighted to secure Kennedy’s signing.

“We as a coaching welcome the signing of Mikey, he is an exciting player who is a real threat with ball in hand. He will add to what is now a dangerous backline. Our style of play will suit his running skills perfectly. Another local lad from Kenfig Hill, this further demonstrates the strong link between the Ravens and the local clubs."

Kennedy joined fellow new recruits Aled Evans (Back Row), Mathew Donnelly (Second Row), Stuart Floyd-Ellis (Centre), and James Little (Second / Back Row) who commenced pre-season training at Coleg Cymunedol y Dderwen last night.
