Gloucester Rugby has announced that Jamal Ford-Robinson has penned a new contract with the Premiership club.

A product of Leicester Academy, Ford-Robinson moved to National League 1 club Cambridge in 2012 before progressing to RFU Championship side Cornish Pirates in 2014.

He was also named Gallagher Premiership Community Player of the Month award in 2020 and donated his prize to the Gloucester Rugby Foundation and local NHS trust.

Gloucester head coach George Skivington is confident that Ford-Robinson has a lot to offer for the club.

“Jamal is an established force at Premiership level, and he’s offered us great stability on both sides of the scrum this season," said Skivington in a statement released by the club.

“He a powerful presence on the pitch, strong in the set-piece, but also good with the ball in hand too. I know he’s really enjoying his time at Kingsholm, and we’re looking forward to him kicking on with us and being a solid part of the future here.”

Gloucester Rugby are positioned last in the Gallagher Premiership table this season after losing nine out of the 10 games and will face Worcester Warriors next on Saturday.
