Beechwood boy Connor Shefford is the latest young Newport rugby player to sign for our world famous club. The 20 year old who was schooled at Eveswell and Llanwern High before moving to the Newport High School Rugby Academy appeared a few times for the club towards the end of last season but has signed a contract to represent Newport RFC during the 2018/19 season.
As a youngster Connor played his rugby at Newport HSOB before moving to Caerleon U16's, youth and seniors. He has also represented the Dragons at both U16 an U18 age groups.
Connor will be hoping that the good form he has showed in black and amber can be developed and everyone at the club is looking forward to watching him playing in the second row for Newport in the new season.
