Hartpury are pleased to announce that Jack Preece will play for them in the 2019-2020 season.
The player has been with Coventry Rugby for the past two seasons, prior to which he had a spell with National 1 side, Birmingham Moseley.
He was voted as Coventry’s MVP in their 2017-18 promotion season, but has had more limited opportunities in the current campaign, partially as a result of untimely injuries.
The move will represent something of a home-coming for Preece, who played most of his developmental rugby in Gloucester with the Old Centralians club – with whom he still has strong connections – before signing for Birmingham Solihull as a 17-year old. He has also played in the Championship for Rotherham Titans.
Preece plays primarily as an open-side flanker, but is something of a utility man who can also operate in the middle of the front row and has been known to appear in the back line.
Hartpury’s John Barnes said, “We are glad to welcome another experienced player into our squad for next season.”
“Jack is a local lad who we are sure will do a good job for us”.
In other news, it was announced last week that winger Ben Foley has signed to play for Nottingham Rugby next season.
