PROMISING coach Eugene Martin has been named as the new backs boss at Pertemps Bees.

PROMISING coach Eugene Martin has been named as the new backs boss at Pertemps Bees.

The former New Zealand Maori threequarter has joined from Rotherham Titans and will assist head coach Russell Earnshaw as the Bees look to erase last year's disappointing memories.

Martin could be the answer to Bees' attacking problems and the 40-year-old has promised to use all his experience to help bring an upturn in fortunes for the Sharman's Cross Road club.

He has signed a two-year contract and his arrival will see him reunited with

Earnshaw after their days together at Doncaster Knights.

"I am really happy to have this opportunity and working alongside Russ will be good because we have got the makings of a good team," said Martin.

He also admitted it was the 'next stage of his career' and Earnshaw believes that he will be a valuable addition.

"He will bring a lot to the club," the Bees boss said. "Rotherham had a good backs outfit this season and Eugene will improve us in that area."

Bees are still unclear about what league they will be playing in next season as their appeal relating to a controversial game against Cornish Pirates back in January has yet to be decided by either the Rugby Football Union or First Division Rugby.

However, Earnshaw knows that his side struggled in attack and has acted to fill the gap which has been left vacant since Ben Harvey left in December.

He has brought fly-half Mark Woodrow back to the club following a stint with Division One outfit Newbury while prop Craig Voisey has linked up from Belfast Harlequins.

Second row John Harlock has also arrived in Solihull from Cambridge.
