Our second player announcement of the day concerns big lock forward, Tom Jubb, who joins us from another fellow Championship side, Coventry.
Tom was part of the Coventry squad that won promotion from National League 1 in 2018. He played against Hartpury in the Championship this season and will also know us from his time with Darlington Mowden Park, with whom Hartpury had some good scraps in our own National League days.
A product of the Saracens academy, he also saw Championship action in a handful of games on loan at Bedford, early in his career, and during a single season with Plymouth Albion in 2014-15.
John Barnes said, “We are very pleased to have signed another player with Championship experience. Tom is a very good line-out operator and will bring further strength to our pack.”
Coventry DoR, Rowland Winter, said, “Jubby has been a big part of our squad for three seasons, and has really developed on and off the pitch in that time. We thank him for his effort and commitment to the club, and look forward to welcoming him back to Butts Park Arena next season with his new club.”
