Cinderford RFC have re-signed former player Jack Adams from fellow National Two South side Chinnor RFC. Adams, 29, played for Cinderford for three seasons from 2012 to 2015 before his one season with Chinnor. Adams joins a long list of former St Peters High School pupils at Cinderford including; George Porter, Rob Winchle, Danny Pointon, Sam Goatley and Stefan Hawley. Adams, a centre, started his career at Gloucester making his first team debut as an 18 year old at Kingsholm in 2005 against Sale Sharks. He made the England Under 21’s squad still aged only 18 but injury ruled him out from playing. In all he made 17 first team appearances for his hometown club before being dual registered with Championship club Moseley from 2007-09. In 2009 he was part of the Moseley squad who won the EDF Trophy at Twickenham. During this time he was also part of the England Sevens squad. Jack joined Bristol in 2009 and played over 50 games for them winning the B & I Cup and losing the Championship play off against Exeter Chiefs in 2011. He rejoined Moseley in 2011 but injury limited his appearances and he joined Cinderford in the summer of 2012 and represented England Counties in their February internationals in 2013 and 2014.
Paul Morris, Cinderford RFC Director of Rugby, is delighted to re-sign Adams. “Jack has had his fair share of injuries over the last few seasons but his pedigree and class are undoubted. He is a really good man and his ability and personality make him a great fit in the squad we are currently putting together. We certainly missed him last season. He will have a mentoring role with several of our young backs and they will be better for his presence. He has a few current injury niggles but we will take our time and help to get him fully fit because when he is Jack will be a real asset for us.”
