Redruth confirm four more signings
Redruth have confirmed that four more players have re-signed with the National League Two South club for the 2012-13 campaign.
Lock Damien Cook, flanker Lewis Moyle and front-row forwards Peter Joyce and Richard Brown will all feature at the Recreation Ground again this term.
The latest additions brings the Reds' squad up to 28 players with the new season still more than eight weeks away.
The Cornish club started pre-season training early last week. Their first league is against Taunton on September 1. Forwards coach Ashley Morcom expects the squad to be in excellent condition under Adrian Edwards, who previously served the club as a strength and conditioning coach.

Morcom said: "Adrian brings something very special and unique. He's got something about him hat just seems to draw the best out of people. He has got what it takes to get people ready for the start of the season. I'm very glad that he is here as head coach."
This will be Morcom's first season as a member of the management team alongside Edwards and backs coach Steve Evans. He hopes the club's ability to produce young players will see them make good progress once more.
He said: "It is my first year in a coaching role at Redruth but I am genuinely looking forward to getting stuck into it.
"It is very good that we've managed to keep so many of the players from last year. The new players we are bringing in are not just from outside, they have come through the Redruth youth systems.
"For years now, we've had the same players going through the same motions and I'm looking forward to the younger players giving it a bit of kick start."
Morcom played extensively under Dave Penberthy, who spent nearly 50 years serving the club as a player, coach, manager and director of rugby before standing down last season.
However, Morcom believes this is a chance for a fresh start. He said: "It is big shoes to fill. Dave did a lot of work for Redruth – not just over the last ten years as a director of rugby.
"I'd like to think we've drawn a line in the sand and hopefully we are going to go forward from there. There is no pressure, we're starting from fresh and we have no expectations."
