Niyi Adeolokun extends Bears stay

Pacey wing Niyi Adeolokun has extended his stay at Bristol Bears, signing a new one-year deal at Ashton Gate, the club can confirm.

The former Connacht flyer, who initially joined the Bears on a short-term contract in the summer of 2020, has scored twice in the Gallagher Premiership this season.

Director of Rugby, Pat Lam, said: "When I gave Niyi his first professional contract at Connacht, his coachability and desire to improve, on and off the field, was superb.

“Since he has been with Bristol, it’s been great to see him continue that growth. Once again, Niyi has fitted in extremely well to the team where he is well-liked and a big part of our Bears culture.”

The 30 year-old touched down in the Boxing Day victory to Harlequins and went over again in style last Friday versus Wasps.

Adeolokun added: “It’s been a fantastic first year with the club and I’m delighted to have been able to contribute to the Bears’ growth.

“Personally, my game is improving under Pat Lam and the coaching staff and I look forward to helping the team achieve our goals going forward.”
