Ilkley recruit USA under-21 international stand off
11:00am Thursday 5th July 2012 in Sport
Ilkley’s players returned to full training on Tuesday and met up with their club’s latest recruit.
Former Otley player Mike Cacchia has joined the Stacks Field outfit for the new York- shire Division One campaign.
Stand-off Cacchia has won under-21 honours for the USA and will compete with Phil Howell for the number 10 jersey as coach Rhys Morgan adds depth to his squad.
Cacchia’s arrival follows hot on the heels of the news that popular Tongan Tuli Makaafi is returning to the club.
Ilkley are believed to be hopeful of strengthening their squad further in the coming weeks.
“There are a number of players showing an interest in joining us, but until any of them sign we cannot take anything for granted,” said rugby operations manager Tom Gillon.
