Ealing Trailfinders can today reveal that Sam Dickinson will be Club Captain for the 2018/19 season.
The second-row/back-rower joined the West Londoners mid-way through the 2017/18 campaign, and made a huge impact in his seven appearances which ended in the British & Irish Cup triumph.
Director of Rugby Ben Ward says Dickinson is the standout choice to lead the team this season.
“Sam has been brilliant since joining us last season. His experience is invaluable, he has the respect of the squad and he leads by example on the pitch which is crucial.
"It is a huge year for the club and with Sam leading us we are sure that we will have another season of progress.”
The 33-year-old arrived at Ealing Trailfinders from Northampton Saints, where he featured on 94 occasions for the Franklin’s Gardens outfit and also captained their Wanderers to the A League Premiership Title.
Before his time at the Saints he had a stint at Rotherham Titans, taking to the field over 60 times in the Championship as well as also representing England Saxons twice.
