Nottingham Rugby is pleased to announce that winger Ryan Hough has signed a new deal with the club as their squad starts to take shape for next season.

Hough Commits To Nottingham

Hough, 22, is another member of the first team squad who has worked his way through the Green and Whites ranks having earned his stripes in the Academy.  He is also another local lad to make the grade, having started off at Mansfield RFC.

He has made 32 appearances for Nottingham and has scored seven tries including a hat trick against Plymouth Albion towards the end of last season.

Hough said, "I'm very happy to have signed a new contract with the club as I've really enjoyed this year, even if results haven't been as good as we would've liked.  I'm looking forward to next year to see if we can progress and build on the foundations we've put in place.

"I really enjoy being part of the squad as the lads are a good bunch and I enjoy working with the coaches.  The coaches know what they're doing and I like the direction that they want to take the club in.

"The signings the club have made ahead of next season are exciting, especially for me as a winger.  The new 10 (Dan Mugford) should get the backline going and we've signed an international winger (Viliame Iongi) so hopefully I'll be able to learn a lot from him to improve my own game."

Nottingham Head Coach Martin Haag commented, "I'm very happy that Ryan is remaining with us for next season.  Similarly to Tom Calladine, Ryan has come through the ranks to make his mark and is another local lad at the core of the squad.

"Ryan is a player who is developing all the time and is an excellent member of the group.  He is a good trainer and has put in a quality showing so far in his career.  The next step for him is to develop consistency in his performances, but with his attitude and some more experience I've no doubt that will come.  I expect to see him forging ahead and making a big impact next season."
