Fylde have boosted their ranks by signing 20-year-old back row or second row forward Joe Robinson.

During last season Robinson played on a dual registration basis for Fylde’s National One rivals Tynedale. Injury and a change of rugby management at the Falcons frustrated him and he’s ready to make a new start at Fylde.

Robinson said: “ I’m looking forward to starting the new season and getting back into the action and really enjoying my rugby again.

“Fylde offers me a very positive and professional environment in which to progress and further my rugby career in the future.”

Head Coach Mark Nelson said: “Joe is a quality player and primarily a blindside flanker.

“We had to mix it up last season by playing opensides and no eights in that position.

“Joe offers us something different.”
