Guy Armitage to join from Wasps
Ealing Trailfinders are thrilled to announce the signing of Guy Armitage from Wasps on a one year contract.
The centre is the latest in a string of exciting signings to be heading to Vallis Way next season, and will add a huge amount of power and size to the midfield for the 2018/19 campaign.
Guy, who is the younger brother of England international Delon and Steffon has a highly impressive rugby pedigree and will be looking to use his experience for his new challenge in West London.
The 26-year-old began his career at London Irish after coming through the academy, before having brief spells at other exile clubs Scottish and Welsh.
From there he joined brother Delon at Toulon in the Top 14, but returned to London Irish where he ran out 21 times at the Madejski Stadium whilst also playing for England at every age-grade level.
The 6ft 5” centre then signed for London Welsh for the 15/16 campaign and featured 29 times for them before making the move to Wasps at the end of that season.
After spending two years at the Ricoh Arena he has played 11 times in the black and gold shirt, but will now join the green and whites as the squad for next year continues to build.
Armitage is looking forward to the next chapter of his career at Vallis Way.
“I’m really excited to be joining Ealing Trailfinders. It’s a very exciting time for the club and I’m eager to play my part in the squad this upcoming season.”
Director of Rugby Ben Ward says this signing is one that will bring plenty of excitement to the club for next year.
“Guy is a very powerful player who will add some real quality to our back-line. It is clear that he has some real ability and we look forward to seeing him show that at Vallis Way next season.”
