Ealing Trailfinders Rugby Club (ETRFC) is delighted to announce the signing of four new players who will join the squad in their inaugural season in the Championship.
ETRFC have signed Centre and Wing man Chris Kinloch and Fly Half Andy Hall from Loughborough Students. The National One champions have also signed Leicester Tigers Prop Camilo Parilli-Ocampo and Leeds University Fly Half, Will Magie.
Chris Kinloch captained Loughborough Students this season and scored seven tries. He is a versatile player and is comfortable playing in the centre or on the wing. He has experience of playing for Scotland U20’s, Scotland 7’s and also featured for Glasgow Warriors.
Chris Kinloch is delighted at the move to ETRFC and said: "I am thrilled to be joining a club with such great calibre and ambition. Having played against them twice this season with Loughborough, I was lucky enough to witness first hand the expansive game Ealing Trailfinders play and the hard work the team puts in to allow it. I look forward to joining the squad in June where the hard work will start looking towards the new Championship campaign."
New addition Andy Hall was Loughborough’s top points scorer with 319 points and is predominantly a fly half but can also slot in at full back and centre.
Chris and Andy both impressed in games against Ealing Trailfinders this season and caught the eye of director of rugby Mike Cudmore. Mike said: “Both players have had very good seasons performing well week in week out for Loughborough. The Loughborough rugby system produces players who have been well coached, have good core skills and are well conditioned. We have high hopes for both these players for the coming season.”
ETRFC also welcome back Camilo Parilli-Ocampo and Will Magie, who both played in the Ealing Trailfinders youth system before heading off to university. Camilo also went to Loughborough before being signed by Leicester Tigers. Camilo stands at 120kg and 6’3 and will add some size to the front row and has the ability to play on either side.
Will has captained USA U20’s and can operate at fly half or full back. Both players continue with Ealing Trailfinders commitment to bring players through the youth system and through the newly set up academy.
The club has now added 10 new recruits to their team as they look to build a squad capable of holding its own in the Championship next season.
