Jersey-Born Player (18) Signs Pro Reds Deal

An 18-year-old islander has signed a professional contract with the senior Jersey Reds side.

Hooker Harry Doolan will pen a four-year contract next month.

The former Mont Nicolle, Les Quennevais and Hautlieu pupil spent time training with the first team last season while playing his rugby for the Reds' mini and junior sections as well as the Jersey Res Athletic team.

He is the latest of 15 new signings for next season's campaign.

"I learned a lot last season training with the pros and playing for the Athletic.

"My aim is to get a game for Jersey Reds and getting a contract is hopefully the start of me being able to achieve that." - Harry Doolan.

Pre-season training is due to resume in July.
