New signings unlikely for Leicester Tigers

Leicester Tigers Chairman Peter Tom says that they are unlikely to be bringing in any new faces during the off season.

Leicester won the Guinness Premiership and lost by three points to Leinster in the Heineken Cup final and Tom says that the squad will get the chance to shine again next term.

“I think pretty well all the squad is in place now. I don’t think there is anybody else to come,” he told the BBC.

“We have a very good squad for next season with a lot of very good young players coming through which is great.”

Tom pointed out that the disappointment of coming so close to winning the Heineken Cup and the Guinness Premiership which would have given them a European double was hard to take.

On a positive note Tom said that the progress the team had made since Richard Cockerill took over as head coach has been hugely impressive.

“We’ve had a long, long season and it’s been an immense effort,” Tom said.

“Everybody would have settled for this at Christmas but when you get to a final you want to win them.

“To be so close is very hard to take but you have to enjoy winning and deal with losing.”
