Kestrels boost forward ranks as Cochrane and Kellock return for another year

Kirkcaldy Kestrels have added two more forwards to their roster for the upcoming Scottish National League (SNL) season.

Sean Cochrane and Lewis Kellock will both return for another year to help the Kestrels’ bid to build on a promising end to the previous campaign.

Cochrane has been a permanent fixture with the Kestrels over the past few years and enjoyed a productive season last time around.

The 24-year-old bagged 11 goals and 16 assists in 22 appearances for the club and is hoping to continue in the same vein next term.

“I’m excited to be back at the Kestrels and looking forward to the new season,” he said.

“Last year was a big learning curve for us – just as we were putting together a good consistent run it all came to a halt.

“We’ll be looking to pick up from where we left off and really kick on and challenge.”

In addition to icing for the Kestrels over the past couple of seasons, Kellock has also enjoyed success with Fife Falcons at U20 level.

He made 10 appearances for the senior team during the 2019/20 season and is eager to continue his progression this year.

“I’m delighted to re-sign with the Kestrels again – last season was a tough year, but there were some real positives towards the end,” said Kellock.

“I’m looking forward to going again and picking up from where we left off.”
