Jenkins and Eccleston commit to Crusaders

Posted by

North Wales Crusaders pair Elliot Jenkins and Dave Eccleston have committed themselves to the club for another year.

Jenkins signed a short term deal last month after re-joining the club from Rochdale Hornets.

Eccleston has been a regular for the club this season, as he scored six tries in 17 appearances in 2019.

On extending his stay at Crusaders, Jenkins said: “I’m made up to get the deal sorted and stay at the club for another year.

“Muzza (head coach Anthony Murray) is a really good coach and it’s been great to work under him.

“Muzza and Andy Moulsdale have both been brilliant with me as, even when I took some time away, they stayed in contact to see how I was doing.

“Everything added up so it was an easy decision to stay.

“The club are moving in the right direction and, if we can recruit well in the right areas, I think we can kick on next season.

“We picked up some big scalps in 2019 so we need to be pushing for those play-offs in 2020.”

Crusaders head coach Anthony Murray said of Eccleston: “Dave is another great addition to our squad for the 2020 season.

“As well as offering a threat on the edges, he always hits the line hard when carrying the ball out of yardage and makes a lot of ground going forward.

“He had a terrific end to the 2019 season and I’m looking forward to seeing how he continues to develop next year.”
