Gloucester-Hartpury sign Sevens star

Gloucester-Hartpury annonced the signing of former Worcester Warrior, Jade Shekells.

Shekells will join up with The Circus ahead of the 2024/25 season after she competes for Great Britain at the 2024 Paris Olympics. She has also represented England during her Sevens career.

She attended Hartpury College where her performances attracted the attention of England U20 selectors and she was capped during her time at Hartpury.

Shekells is an experienced operator at Premiership level, playing for Worcester Warriors earlier in her career. She earned the 2020/21 Warriors Player's Player of the Year award for her outstanding contributions to the squad which helped her side to a seventh place finish in the Premiership.

Head Coach, Sean Lynn said: "Jade is a talented player that we're excited to welcome into the squad. She has some impressive experience with Worcester Warriors and in the Sevens game with England and Team GB so we know that she will be a valuable addition to the team. We wish her all the best in Paris at the Olympics and look forward to seeing her in Cherry and White later this year."
