Pre-season training starts in earnest at the beginning of July, with several more players expected to be announced over the coming weeks.

“The development of young players is very important to the club”, said Terry Sands, Performance Director.

“Over the last two years we are very proud to have helped develop players such as Harry Anderson-Brown from who joined us from Wymondham, Dave Micklethwaite and Matt Selby from Norwich, Luke Reinman and Aaron Forest from our Junior Academy and Toby Trinder who was on a season long player development loan plan from Northampton Saints and who is now in a position to progress to Ampthill in National League 1.”

The deals come days after the club announced Italian players Federico Silvestri and Daniele Greco have joined alongside new Academy coach Dimitri Tonni.
