Gloucester Rugby has confirmed that England wing Ollie Thorley has penned a new long-term deal with the Gallagher Premiership club.

Thorley went on to make his Gloucester at the age of 17 in 2013 Anglo-Welsh Cup, making him the youngest player in the professional era to feature for the club. His Premiership debut for the Cherry and Whites came in 2016 and has played 45 games in the competition scoring 20 tries in it.

The 24-year-old also was the highest-try scorer in the 2019/20 season of Gallagher Premiership with 11 touchdowns. He was also awarded the Gallagher Premiership Rugby Player of the Month for November 2018 and won the RPA Young Player of the Year Award for the 2018/19 season.

His consistent performances in the domestic circuit saw him make his international debut during the final round of Six Nations game against Italy in October which also was his only appearance for the red rose team.

“Ollie is an extremely important player for us now and in the future, and we are really pleased that he has extended his contract with us," said the club's chief operating officer Alex Brown.

"He’s a player that has come through our Academy system and it is credit to his hard work and dedication that he has developed into an international winger.

"We are looking forward to seeing Ollie continue to develop and grow his game in Cherry & White for years to come.”
