Spee hopes to learn

BEES full back Reece Spee may well be terrorising National Two teams up and down the country but he admits his game is far from complete.

BEES full back Reece Spee may well be terrorising National Two teams up and down the country but he admits his game is far from complete.

The energetic 30-year-old has established himself as a firm fans’ favourite at Sharmans Cross Road with his never-say-die attitude and attacking flair.

However one area he is struggling in is his kicking but last year’s ever-present star is hoping to learn or thing or two tomorrow when he lines up against Leeds Carnegie.

“It will be good for us to play against some good opposition to see what we’re about and where we really are, and how much we need to improve,” he said.

“It’s going to be good fun to play against players of their calibre and I hope Jonny Goodridge plays.”

Former Gloucester full back Goodridge is well known for his excellent long-range kicking qualities.

His attacking kicking game has been influential for Leeds as they charge for an automatic return to the Guinness Premiership and Spee will be taking note of his opposite number tomorrow.

“Eugene’s (Martin) been working with me on my kicking and it’s been helping out,” said Spee.

“I tend not to want to kick the ball so he’s helping me improve that side of my game.”
