Gloucester Rugby confirm departing players

Gloucester Rugby confirm departing players
GLOUCESTER RUGBY WOULD LIKE TO THANK THOSE PLAYERS WHO ARE LEAVING THE CLUB AT THE END OF THE MONTH, AND WISH THEM THE BEST OF LUCK FOR THE NEXT STEPS IN THEIR CAREERS.

Gloucester Rugby can confirm that three players will be leaving the Club to move to Japan. Tom Marshall, Franco Mostert and Franco Marais have chosen to further their careers elsewhere. It goes without saying that we are extremely grateful for their hard work and contribution during their time whilst representing our Club.

OTHER DEPARTING PLAYERS

Four other players, who’s contract had expired, will also be leaving at the end of this month.

Callum Braley will head to Benetton Rugby, as we announced in February. Callum has been a regular in the Gloucester Rugby matchday squad and made his 100th competitive appearance in the Heineken Cup win over Connacht back in December.

Owen Williams comes to the end of his three-year stay with the Cherry & Whites. The Welsh international picked up 37 appearance for Gloucester Rugby, the highlight, without doubt, being his match-winning conversion away at Bath.

We’d also like to thank Ruan Dreyer, who will depart Kingsholm having joined the Cherry & Whites ahead of the 2018-19 season. Injury limited Dreyer’s time on the field, but he has been an asset to the squad.

As announced in March, Aaron Hinkley has opted to move to Exeter Chiefs over the summer. We’d like to wish Aaron all the best with his future at Sandy Park.

Simon Linsell has also moved on. Simon is heading to Ealing Trailfinders, where he goes with our best wishes and thanks for his time with us.

We thank all of those who will leave us for new pastures, for your hard work and enthusiasm on and off the field.

Lance Bradley, Chief Executive Officer, said “While it’s always sad to see players depart the Club, we nevertheless wish them all the best for the future. We have, of course, been planning for these departures for some time, and will have a fully competitive squad as we look forward to restarting the 2019/20 season. We will be providing details shortly.”
