Holyrood Brothers Taking Vikings to the Top

Doug and Connor Caddick, currently studying at Holyrood Academy 6th Form, are on a mission to make an impact in the world of rugby. They now both play in the squad for the Somerset Vikings and are already making a name for themselves!

The brothers discovered their early passion for rugby when, as young children, they played rugby union for Chard RFC. Doug has also played for Ivel Barabrians in the past and both boys have played at district and county level and for Irish Exiles South West teams.

Doug was invited to try out for the Vikings at the start of the season and is now sponsored by West Country Waterjet (Chard). Connor, also recently invited to join, had his first game for the Vikings in June against Exeter Centurions – in the inaugural Trans-Blackdown Challenge Cup where Somerset Vikings won 48-28.

The Vikings currently play in the West of England Premier League with matches against Bristol Sonics, Swindon St George, Cheltenham Phoenix and Bath & Wiltshire Romans, as well as friendlies and 9s tournaments with clubs from Devon, Wiltshire, Gloucester and beyond.

Keep up the hard work boys – Holyrood eagerly awaits news of your further success.
