Ealing Trailfinders are excited to confirm the signing of versatile Sale Sharks back Jack Metcalf.
The highly-rated 21-year-old, who can play centre, wing or fullback, joins Trailfinders following a successful 2021/22 season playing for Sale Sharks. Jack achieved 12 first-team appearances and scored four tries, including crossing for a Champions Cup try against Ospreys in January. Jack also featured on loan for Sale FC, scoring 11 tries and helping the National 1 club finish second behind Caldy.
Before joining Sale in March 2021, Jack was a member of the Yorkshire Carnegie Academy, achieving his Championship debut in 2019/20. He also represented Yorkshire U18’s, attended Bishop Burton College and played alongside fellow Trailfinders signing Dan Lancaster at West Park Leeds.
Ahead of his move to Vallis Way, Jack said: “When the opportunity came to join Ealing Trailfinders it was a no-brainer. It’s a great club with fantastic facilities and a clear ambition to progress even further. I can’t wait to link up with my new teammates and help the club achieve their goals next season and beyond.”
Director of Rugby Ben Ward, added: “Jack is a highly dynamic and exciting player. He is lethal in attack and adds plenty of firepower and versatility to our backline. We’re delighted Jack has agreed terms with Trailfinders and looking forward to his first season at the club.”
