Saracens re-sign young stars
Saracens are delighted to announce that they have extended the contracts of seven academy players including Phoenix clients Matt Gallagher and Billy Walker.
An England Under 20 Junior World Cup winner, wing/fullback Gallagher made his Saracens debut in an assured performance on the wing away to Bristol in round five of the Aviva Premiership. Currently dual registered with Bedford Blues, his try-scoring appearance on Friday away to Scarlets was his third start of the Anglo-Welsh Cup campaign, this time at full back showing his versatility in the back three.
A tough prop who comes in to his own at the set-piece, Billy Walker lifted the Junior World Cup alongside his Saracens academy teammates Matt Gallagher, Max Malins and George Perkins last summer. Walker is another academy player to have made his Sarries debut in the Anglo-Welsh Cup and has enjoyed a good run in the A League.
