Nottingham Rugby is delighted to announce that full back Sean Scanlon, sponsored by Smith Cooper, has signed for next season.

Signing for the Green and Whites in 2017, Sean has become a key figure on and off the field for Neil Fowkes’ team and, as of next year, he will be taking on the role of player-coach in the side.

He will be taking on several duties within the squad as an assistant coach.

Sean said: “I’m really pleased that I’ll be wearing a Green and White jersey again next year and I can’t wait to get started in my new role as a coach.

“There is a real togetherness in our squad and I am excited about what the future holds for our boys.”

Speaking about Sean’s new role, head coach Neil Fowkes said: “I am delighted that Sean will be staying with us for next season.

“We identified his qualities as a leader and a coach from his work with Dronfield and it’s a real pleasure to welcome him to our coaching team next year.

“He’s incredibly experienced at Championship level and I think the younger players will benefit from his insight.”

Nottingham Rugby will be announcing Neil Fowkes’ squad for 2019-20 over the next two weeks and with new signings on way, there’s plenty to be excited about for next year.
