Josh Beaumont signs new contract with Sale Sharks

Sale Sharks are delighted to announce that 24-year-old Josh Beaumont has signed a new three-year deal with the club and will also be club captain for the forthcoming season.

Josh has played 45 games for the club since his debut in the Heineken Cup back in  2013, and has scored eight tries.

Director of Rugby Steve Diamond said, “Securing the signature of Josh on a three year deal is a big statement of intent for the club. Josh has come through the system at the club and is also a member of the England squad. He was ready for his full England debut before his injury at Worcester. He has worked hard on his rehabilitation and it won’t be long now before he leads the team out.

"Josh, as everyone knows, comes from a rugby family and is a born leader.”

Speaking about his new contract and appointment as captain Josh said, “With the takeover over the club being completed and the vision the new owners have I was delighted to sign and commit my future to the club.

"I am from  the North West and want to help Sale Sharks reach its full potential and be one of the leading clubs in Aviva Premiership Rugby. Dimes making me skipper is a proud moment too and I look forward to captaining the side this season.”
