Nottingham Rugby has today confirmed the signing of two
more players ahead of their next Greene King IPA Championship
Elliott Cox, 19, a promising young full back, has joined from
the London Irish Academy as he looks to make the step up to
Championship rugby after spending last season plying his trade in
National Division 2 with the London Irish Wild Geese.
Cox said, "I was looking to make the step up to Championship
rugby after playing with the Geese in National 2. I know
Alfie Malloy and Jacob Knight well and they spoke very highly of
the club. I spoke to (former Nottingham Rugby Director of
Rugby) Glenn Delaney who is currently the forwards coach at London
Irish and he put me in touch with Martin Haag.
"I was very impressed with Martin's vision for the team and I
know that Nottingham is a top club that should be challenging at
the top end of the league. With the signings they've made I'm
sure they'll be up there.
"Personally I'm looking to get as much game time and experience
under my belt and I'm looking forward to testing myself at this
level. It's a big step up, but I'm going to train hard to get
myself to where I need to be and hopefully I'll get the opportunity
Nottingham Head Coach Martin Haag commented, "Elliott was part
of the London Irish Academy and is another player who wants to push
himself at Championship level.
"He plays mainly at full back will add to an already exciting,
young, back line. Elliott has been extremely determined to take up
this opportunity at Nottingham and I'm looking forward to seeing
him develop with us."
The Green and Whites have also confirmed the signing of Cameron
Lee-Everton, brother of Harrison Lee-Everton who played for the
club for the past two seasons. Like his brother, he is a
scrum half and he joins the club from the Northampton Saints
