Stooke moves from Gloucester to Bath

Elliot Stooke will move from Gloucester to Bath next season

Gloucester second rower Elliott Stooke has agreed to move from Aviva Premiership Rugby club Gloucester to West Country rivals Bath.

Twenty-two-year-old Stook has represented England throughout the age groups, including a call-up to the England Saxons in January 2014.

Big and powerful, the lock, who hails from Worcester originally, has made nearly 70 appearances for the Cherry and Whites since his debut in the 2012-13 season, and has impressed with his hard work and influential play both in the tight and the loose.

“Elliott is a big, strong lad, and we’re looking forward to seeing him continue his development with us here at Bath,” said Mike Ford, Head Coach at Bath Rugby.

“He has a great skillset for a young player, along with a great attitude, and I have no doubt he’ll fit into the Club really well.”

Speaking of the move, Stooke commented: “It’s been a hard decision to make, but I’m really excited about the move to Bath.”

“They’re an ambitious club, and the coaches work incredibly hard to help develop each individual player at the same time as making sure the team is growing. It’s a hugely talented squad to join up with, and it is a great environment for a young player like myself to be part of.

“I’d like to thank everyone associated with Gloucester for the support they have given me over the years, and I’ll be making sure I do all I can to play my part to make the rest of this season successful before I leave.”
