London Irish academy graduate and last season’s Young Player of the Season award winner, Harry Elrington, has extended his contract with the club.
Elrington, 23, rose to prominence during the Exiles’ promotion winning campaign to underline his bourgeoning credentials.
Rubbing shoulders with double World Cup winning prop Ben Franks, Elrington has significantly improved his game under the watch of the former All Black.
“I’m delighted to have extended my contract with London Irish, a club that has given me the opportunity to show what I can do on the big stage,” said Elrington.
“I’m fully focused on fighting for a regular place in the team and I’m looking forward to continuing my progression with the club.”
Exiles’ director of rugby Nick Kennedy said: “Harry is a very talented prop who has already contributed a considerable amount to the team.
“Harry was the club’s first academy plus graduate and he’s shown what you can achieve with a lot of hard work and dedication.”
In support of London Irish first team player, Darren Dawidiuk, who’s receiving treatment for testicular cancer, the club will be making a donation of £4 per adult ticket and £2 per 65 and over ticket bought for the Bath game at the Madejski Stadium on Sunday 19 November from 7 November onwards to the Movember Foundation.
Tickets start from £23 for adults and £3 for under 13s. Tickets are available from www.lidirect.co.uk or by calling 0118 968 1016 (Monday to Friday 9am to 5pm, Saturday 9am to noon).
