John Horbury #17 transfers to Welwyn Warriors
Over the weekend, John Horbury (#17) requested a transfer to Welwyn Warriors, which was agreed by Milton Keynes and the transfer process was completed in time for John to play in Welwyn’s 1st team Flags game against Hillcroft A. Alas for John, his new team lost 11-7 but still have their primary goal of promotion back into the Premiership to battle for.
The reason John put in the transfer request is that he wants to push to make the England Universities squad for this year’s British National Championships at the end of April. Playing with the Welwyn 1st team in East Division One could give him a better chance than with Milton Keynes in East Division Two. We wish John all the best in his quest to make that squad.
