Delany's move to Bears halted

Lauren Delany will no longer be joining Bristol Bears Women due to unforeseen personal circumstances.

The 11-cap Ireland international was due to arrive in the West Country ahead of the 2020/21 Premier 15s season but she will no longer be joining the squad.

“I’m extremely disappointed that I will no longer be joining Bristol Bears Women,” said Delany.

“A lot has changed for me in my personal life in a very short period of time, which means that I’m no longer able to relocate to the South West from Manchester and link up with what would have been my new teammates.

“It’s a club going in the right direction with a talented group of players and fantastic coaches, and I’m gutted I won’t be able to represent the club.

I would like to thank Kim and the Bristol Bears for their understanding on the matter and I wish the club all the best for the upcoming season.”

Head Coach Kim Oliver added: “We’re disappointed Lauren will not be joining us ahead of the new season, but we wholeheartedly understand and support her in doing what is right for her at this time.

“Lauren is a talented player and it’s a shame we’re not going to get to see her in Bears colours this season and we wish her the best of luck for the future.”
