Josh Signs Again for The Pirates
Having signed for the Cornish Pirates in the past season, and it then unfortunate that he was unable to feature because of injury, it is confirmed that fit again 24-year-old lock forward Josh Williams has pleasingly put pen to paper for the 2022/23 campaign.
Born in Stockton-on-Tees, County Durham, Josh is a former England under 18s and under 19s international, who serves in the Marines and has played for the Navy. As for his club rugby, he has represented Billingham, Darlington Mowden Park, and Newcastle Falcons where, when a Senior Academy member, he played alongside the likes of Adam Radwan and Jamie Blamire, besides also featuring in the ‘A’ league.
Pleased that Josh is once again able to sign for the Cornish Pirates, joint head coach Alan Paver has commented:
“A young man with a good pedigree, it was unfortunate that injury prevented Josh from playing for us last season
“He is a big and talented forward, who has formerly been involved with Newcastle Falcons and is nowadays in the Navy where we have had good connections in the past, including when Sam Matavesi was here with us.”
“Now fit again, Josh will be raring to go and to make an impression. The time he has already spent around the squad will be beneficial and being ambitious rugby-wise, and still young, bodes well for his development and future.”
