Will Fairhurst & Will Martin Join Growing Pre-Season Signings

24th September 2015

The Skolars strong off-season recruitment drive has continued with the re-signing of two Will’s, Will Fairhurst and Will Martin.  Both players impressed with consistent performances when they took to the field in 2015.

Will Martin was a strong force at the back end of the season and became an extremely reliable member of the team at prop. Always one to put his hand up for the hard carries and very rarely missing tackles he has made 7 appearances, crossing the try line twice along the way.

Will Fairhurst came to Skolars as a bit of an unknown. Advancing through the Warrington academy system and then on to Australia where he consistently played Queensland Cup for Tweet Head Seagulls, it was obvious Will had talent. He proved that talent this year making 9 appearances at the start of the season. Unfortunately for him he has a shocking run of injuries in the 2nd half of the season. He first suffered a medial ligament tear after playing 9 early season games and subsequently missed a large portion of the summer after keyhole surgery to repair the damage. Upon making his return on the annual Friday Night Lights game vs North Wales he was cruelly struck down with a rupture of the achilles, requiring more surgery and putting him out for the remainder of the season. We all wish him well for the long rehab journey and look forward to seeing him fit and healthy and playing for the Skolars in 2016.
