2nd New Signing of the Week

4 years ago By Chris Cockton

Following the announcement of new signing Mike Mills, Bolton can also now announce the signing of Richard Newman.

Rick is the younger brother of former Bolton player Chris Newman and like his brother is a back row forward who enjoys playing 6,7 or 8 but is as at home in the second row making him a versatile all round forward.

A former Bolton School 1st XV captain, Rick has also represented the Independent Schools Barbarians team on a tour to the Far East and was 1st XV and Club Captain at University of Warwick, making him an outstanding signing for the Cherry & Whites. He has been out of the game of late due to work commitments, but is looking forward to getting back into rugby and aiding Bolton in their seasons efforts.

Much like Mike, he will be given his chance to shine this Saturday in the cup match against Southport. All at Bolton look forward to seeing them both run out in club colours.
