Jon Evans and Ethan Phillips Retained
Ebbw Vale RFC are delighted to announce that Jon Evans and Ethan Phillips will once again be Steelmen for the 2023/24 season.
Jon Evans will be starting his 3rd season at Ebbw Vale, having made 22 appearances in 2022/23 and scoring 2 tries. Jon was also selected to play for for Crawshays in Hong Kong during the 22/23 season.
Jon said, “I am really excited to continue building on the good work we put in last season. What we achieved as a group with the age and experience of our squad far surpassed anyone’s expectations. A lot of the players now understand how tough the Welsh Prem can be and what is required to win week in week out, but we want more. I want Ebbw to be competing for Silverware and give the amazing Ebbw fans something to celebrate.”
Also returning to the Steelmen for 23/24 will be local favourite, Ethan Phillips. Ethan scored 7 tries in 20 appearances during the 22/23 season and also passed 50 appearances for the Steelmen during the year.
Ethan commented, “I am delighted to have re-signed once again. It is always a no-brainer for me playing for my hometown club. It’s exciting seeing the club moving in the right direction and I am looking forward to pushing on from last season.”
Next announcement: Friday 19th May @ 6.30pm
