David Johnston commits to Ealing Trailfinders
Ealing Trailfinders can today reveal that David Johnston has signed a new contract for the 2019/20 season.
The former Munster man is a versatile member of the back-line who can play at either centre or full-back.
Johnston has made 13 appearances so far this season, and his best form has come in recent weeks with a number of outstanding displays which have seen him dominating defences from full-back.
He has crossed the try-line on four occasions including his last two appearances against Coventry and Nottingham, and is also an impressive goal-kicker when called upon.
The Irishman has been battling with the likes of Peter Lydon and Will Harries for the number 15 shirt this season, and will be looking to continue his form as the Trailfinders look for a strong end to the campaign which could include Championship Cup glory.
Johnston is looking forward to another year at Trailfinders Sports Club.
“I’m delighted to have the opportunity to play here again at Ealing Trailfinders next season.
It’s great to have a high number of the current squad also committing to the club which fills me with confidence for the future.
I came to the club in search of a place where I could really improve as a player and test myself during high quality matches and that’s exactly what we’re getting. I’m looking forward to achieving with this team as we continue to grow together.”
Director of Rugby Ben Ward is pleased to have another crucial member of the squad for the 19/20 campaign.
“Dave is a model professional and brings a huge amount to the group. He works incredibly hard on his game and has a very good rugby brain so it is great news that he will be with us next season.”
