Keighley Cougars can today confirm Emmerson Whittel is to return to action for the Reserves this weekend.
Whittel who has been out since February with a broken jaw sustained in the unsavoury scenes which marred our Challenge Cup tie against Fryston Warriors, has been cleared to return to action a month ahead of schedule.
Emmerson is one of a number of first team players made available to Scott Lindsey by Craig Lingard for Saturday’s game against Scotland Students, who are coached by Cougars Assistant Nathan Graham.
Cougars Reserves duo Gavin Reed and Luke Walters are set to feature in opposition as a part of the Scotland side.
The game is a 3pm kick off at Cougar Park with admission prices set at £5 for Adults, £3 for Concessions and £1 for Juniors.
