After seeing him impressing with the Welsh Academicals, we signed Toby Fricker for the 2017/18 season and, from the start of that campaign, it was clearly evident that we had signed a player that would be the “talk of the town”. Toby has been ever present in the Ebbw side since joining us and this season he has played every minute of every game. His sheer aggression and passion has not only been influential but infectious in everything good about Ebbw this year. It is with great pride and pleasure that we announce that Toby has signed a two and a half year contract for English Premiership side Bristol Bears from today.
Toby said, “My time at Ebbw has been brilliant and I have enjoyed every second of it. The players, staff, coaches, officers and fans have been unbelievable over the past two seasons and it will be sad to say goodbye, but I am excited and grateful for this opportunity and cannot wait to get stuck in. I will look forward to coming to support Ebbw in the future! Thanks again to the boys, staff, coaches, officers and fans.”
We would like to thank Toby for his commitment and effort over the past two seasons and would like to wish him all the luck and success in this exciting new venture.
Ebbw won a tense St David’s Day thriller at ECP, beating Pontypridd 17-16.
