Gloucestershire All Golds sign a familiar figure ahead of their trip to Whitehaven this weekend
Gloucestershire All Golds have signed a familiar figure ahead of their trip to Whitehaven on Sunday.
The club has just announced the re-signing of Welsh international Courtney Davies who joined from South Wales Ironmen.
Half-back Davies first joined the All Golds from London Skolars ahead of the start of the 2015 season.
He had two successful years with the Gloucestershire club before opting to sign for the Ironmen last autumn.
With the World Cup on the horizon, he says the move back to the All Golds will give him the platform needed to push for a place in the Wales squad.
He said: “I’m really excited to be back at the All Golds.
"They’ve had some fantastic results so far this season. Obviously, I know a lot of the players from my time here in 2016 and 2017 and I’m really looking forward to meeting up with them again.
“I’m looking forward to working with all the coaching staff who can help me improve.
“From a personal point of view, I just want to continue improving and helping the team. With the World Cup coming up at the end of the season, I want to do everything I can to nail a place in the squad.
“We’ve got some massive games coming up. We’re going to push hard for a place in the top eight. In just over a month, we’ll be playing in Canada against Toronto.
“If I get selected, it will be incredible. To play a game that’ll be live on television and in front of a big crowd is what you dream of.
“I can’t wait to get going gain with the All Golds.”
Davies, 22, played 22 times for the All Golds in his first spell and scored eight tries, as well as kicking 25 goals.
Whitehaven opened the 2017 League One season in South Wales, where they won 27-10 but Davies was not in the Ironmen line-up.
Sunday’s game, which will kick-off at 3pm, is part of a Ladies Day promotion and officials say has already proved to be a huge success – it is fully booked for the afternoon.
