WESTCLIFF youngster Jake Spivey is determined to build on his eye-catching senior debut.

The teenager bagged two tries on his first start against Shelford and has now set his sights on continuing to impress.

“Obviously any try is enjoyable but to grab two on my debut felt special, especially as we were behind but I have to keep going now,” said Spivey.

“It was a great result as well so I got off to an ideal start but I want to keep helping the team get more good results.

“My own aim for the rest of the season is to hopefully keep the starting position and continue playing in the form I am plus hopefully getting better as a player.

“In terms of the team, I don’t think it’s unrealistic to say Westcliff have the ability to beat any team in our league but we will take each week as it comes.”

Westcliff’s 38-23 win at Shelford was their fourth victory in six games and saw them move back up to fifth in the London & SE Premier Division.

And Spivey - a key member of Seevic College’s successful side - enjoyed making the step up to the senior ranks.

“It was a big step up physically but I feel I coped very well and could perform at that level physically and mentally, which hopefully I’ll be able to show,” said Spivey.

“I am used to playing at high levels and intensity, having previously training at Saracens and the England trials, so I enjoyed it.

“The game was brilliant to be a part of.

“It was really exciting.”

Spivey - who has been with Westcliff since a young age - started at full-back against Shelford before reverting to his preferred position of scrum half.

But he feels happy in either of the roles.

“I’m normally a half back but as I’ve developed physically as a player I’m used to being moved to different positions and I have played at full-back before so it was not uncomfortable for me at all,” said Spivey.

“However, I didn’t really get stuck in until I moved to scrum half, where I scored the two tries, as it wasn’t very busy at full-back.”
