Cam signs up for a second season at the Woodlands

Cameron Crampton has committed himself to a second season with Fylde in 2019-20. The 20 year old scrum-half had a very successful first campaign at the Woodlands following a move from Midlands Premier club Sandbach RUFC. An ankle injury in September was an early setback but he recovered quickly and made 25 appearances during the season, sharing the no 9 role with Sale Sharks’ Gus Warr and Adam Lanigan, and scoring four tries in the process. He’s also a neat left footed goal kicker and provided cover for principal kicker, his half-back partner Greg Smith.

Before joining Fylde he earned representative honours for Cheshire at U’17s, U’18s & U’20s levels and stepped up a level in May 2019 to start three games for Lancashire’s County Championship squad.

Cameron, 5’6 & 75kg, is currently studying for a degree in accounting and finance at Manchester University.

Warren Spragg said: “I was delighted that Cam got the opportunity to play for Lancashire after a strong debut season with Fylde. I think that experience will have further strengthened his game understanding and confidence. We will he looking for him to start to drive standards at training to help take the team forwards.”

Cameron Crampton said: “My debut season at Fylde brought new challenges, and many opportunities. Our expansive style suits the way that I like to play and the lads have made me really welcome at the Woodlands. Many thanks to my sponsor, Campbell & Rowley, and the great fan support both home & away.

“Despite a poor end to the season we made massive progress as a squad from where we started the year, and put ourselves in a good position heading into the new season. I look forward to another exciting season at Fylde, fully expecting myself and the lads to further improve and finish higher up the table.”
