Sheedy signs new two year contract with Bristol Rugby

Highly rated fly half Callum Sheedy is the latest exciting young talent to commit his future to Bristol Rugby until 2020.

The 22 year-old – who came through the club’s Academy system – becomes the next graduate to put pen to paper following deals for Sam Jeffries and Andy Uren.

“We’re working hard to build a squad of young players that can compete in the top flight of English rugby,” Head Coach Pat Lam told bristolrugby.co.uk.

“Callum is a player who the coaching team are excited about. He’s a competitor, very coachable and extremely respected in our environment. We have no doubt that these qualities will help him achieve his and the team’s goals.

“Callum has recently achieved English qualified (EQP) status, which is an important focus for Bristol Rugby. The impetus now is for him to push on and continue to show the coaches and supporters what he is capable of in a Bristol jersey.”

Sheedy has made twenty first team appearances for Bristol, including a memorable 22-point haul in the 2016 Championship play-off final.

Sheedy is targeting promotion back to the Premiership with the club (JMP UK).

He said: “I’m loving it at Bristol this season and happy to commit my future in what is an exciting period for the club.

“It’s been great to work with the coaching team – there’s clarity for the players about what is expected of them. I’m enjoying the attacking freedom of our system and there’s obviously a real desire to be competing at the top level, which is enticing for any player.

“The important thing for me now is to repay that faith from the club and keep working hard on my game.”
