BURNHAM-ON-SEA RFC begin their Somerset Premier season at home to Weston Hornets 2nds on Saturday.

The Stags had a successful season last time out, finishing second in the league and winning the Somerset Vase.

They will be looking to build on that in 2019/20 and captain Ross McKechan is raring to go.

McKechan said: "We have had a good pre-season and the boys have put in plenty of work to get ready for the first game against Hornets on Saturday.

"We tested ourselves against teams in the league above and competed well in all areas of the game.

"We had a great season last year so it’s important that we take confidence from that and really go at it this year.

"We have a good mix of youth and experience and know that if we work hard and are accurate, we can be successful.

"The teams in the league are strong and it is going to be tough but we are looking forward to facing the challenges that the season has to offer head on."
