Sharp signs new capital deal

Harlequins academy product Will Sharp has signed a contract extension to remain in the capital.

Sharp, 23, joined the club in 2005, graduating through the academy before making his first team debut in 2008.

The Bradford-born winger scored a hat trick against the Bulls last season, and is excited to remain at the club.

“The progress I’ve made since coming to Harlequins has been fantastic, and I’m really pleased that I can remain here with the coaches and players that have brought the best out of me.

“The club has built a strong core of players that have been here several years and are committed for several more, which says a great deal about our ambitions and potential.”

Harlequins Rugby League head coach, Brian McDermott, believes that Sharp is instrumental in the club’s future plans.

“Will is a class young player and another product of the Harlequins youth system. He has the rare quality of being very fast and very strong, able to match many forwards, and I’m very pleased that he wants to stay with us.

“He’ll feel himself a bit unfortunate that he’s not been named in the England set up. However, with the drive and ambition Will has, I’ve no doubt he’ll be in strong contention for the four nations later this year.”

Will Sharp joins fellow team mates Rob Purdham, David Howell, Chris Melling and Chad Randall who have all recently signed contract extensions with Harlequins.
