Bristol Bears have announced that fly-half Callum Sheedy has penned a new two-year deal with the Gallagher Premiership club.
Sheedy started his professional rugby debut with Bristol in 2014 and has featured in 21 Premiership games since then. He has also captained the side for the first time last season. He also went on to represent England XV that took on Barbarians in June this year and enjoyed loan stints with Clifton, Dings Crusaders, Cinderford and Jersey Reds.
“Bristol is the club very close to my heart. They gave me my first professional contract five years ago and, since Pat Lam’s arrival, my game has really progressed," he told the official website of the club.
“I’m loving my time here and I’m excited about the vision and where we are going.
"There’s a fantastic group of players that are all pulling in the same direction and a genuine mindset that we can overcome any challenges if we work hard as a team and believe in ourselves.”
“I have ambitions to test myself at the highest level and to win silverware, I’m confident I can achieve those goals at Bristol Bears.”
Director of Rugby Pat Lam expressed his delight in securing the services of Sheedy for another two years.
“It’s pleasing to secure Callum’s services for another two years following this one as he’s a young man with a bright future in the game.
"Callum really excites us because he’s a leader, he understands our game and he fits seamlessly into the way we want to play.
