CO-CAPTAIN Jake Albon is among 10 Henley Rugby Club players to commit to playing for the Hawks next season.

Formal contracts have not yet been signed but are expected to be once rugby can be played again in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic.

When last season was brought to a halt by the RFU in March, the Henley Hawks were fourth in National Division 2 South with five matches remaining.

They were six points behind first placed Taunton Titans and three points behind play-off second placed hopefuls Tonbridge Juddians.

No date has been set yet for the new season to begin but players have sought to pledge their immediate future is at Dry Leas with more to follow.

Albon, who plays second row, is now in his fifth season at the club and is a master at Mousford Preparatory School.

Tom Emery, who plays hooker, is also in his fifth season at the club and has amassed more than 100 appearances.

Charlie Hughes, who plays prop, is now in his second year and his best performance came last year with a hat-trick of tries in one game before half-time.
