After playing two seasons at the Cornish Pirates it is confirmed that Maliq Holden, aged 24, has signed a further one-year contract at the club.
Liverpool-born, Maliq is wing/full-back who can also play at outside centre. He represented Netherlands at under 17,18, and 19 levels, plus England Students, and was also twice a BUCS Final winner with Hartpury University, scoring a try in win against Exeter University at Twickenham in 2017, and repeating the exercise against Cardiff Met in 2018. He has also played for Bristol United in the A League.
During his time with the Pirates, Maliq has not only featured in 22 games but was also at the end of 2019/20 season named the club’s ‘Most Improved Player’ of the year.
Once again pleased to have secured Maliq’s signature, Cornish Pirates’ joint Head Coach, Gavin Cattle, has said:
Last season we saw Maliq breakthrough into the starting XV. He hit the ground running after a good pre-season and making the most of that momentum put in some high-end performances. Demonstrating what he is capable of, his challenge now is building on this.
Maliq has also really bought into our environment and is a big contributor off the field too. As a real team man and we are delighted to see to have him onboard.
We are delighted to confirm Man Down as an Official Charity Partner, after their recent visit to The Mennaye.
