The end of the 2017/18 season sees a number of departures from Jersey Reds as players and members of the support team depart for pastures new.
The Reds closed their league campaign with a 26-30 win at Doncaster Knights on Saturday, finishing the season in fifth place in the Greene King IPA Championship table. This Saturday a predominantly amateur Jersey side will take on Channel Island rivals Guernsey in the annual contest for the Siam Cup.
Those who are leaving are (with destination if already confirmed):
* Ellis Abrahams
* Jake Armstrong (Bristol)
* Oli Bryant
* Brendan Cope (Yorkshire Carnegie)
* Kieran Hardy (Scarlets)
* Uili Kolo'ofa'i
* Seb Nagle-Taylor
* Tom Pincus (Bristol)
* Tom Quarrie
* Matt Rogerson
* Jared Saunders
* Scott van Breda (Worcester Warriors)
* Jake Woolmore (Bristol)
Scrum-half Alex Dolly has finished his short-term contract with the Reds, while Physiotherapist Sarah Chambers and Analyst Emma Cadoux-Hudson are also leaving the club.
Jersey Reds Chairman Mark Morgan said: "We are saying goodbye to a number of colleagues. Many of the players have agreed moves to other clubs, while others haven't yet finalised their next steps. The club is very grateful to all of those departing for their commitment to the Reds' cause during their time here, and we'd like to wish them all the best for the future."
