Purslow Joins the Bears
Prop forward Ollie Purslow has joined the club for 2019
TT: Ollie is a very experienced front-rower, having spent time with London Skolars, Gloucestershire All Golds and before that London Broncos, racking up well over 200 professional appearances. I spoke to some Bears players who have played alongside Ollie in the past and all had good things to say about him. He will be relocating to Birmingham in the new year and so it made perfect sense to add him to our squad.
OP: I joined Coventry because whenever I have played against them in the past they have always appeared to be a close knit team, with great unity and I wanted to be part of that. I have also spoken to Tom over the last 2 or 3 seasons whenever we have played and have been very impressed by him. My personal ambition is to bring some added experience to the team, and some aggression. I have played over 200 games at this level and want to help the team have the best season to date and case as many upsets as we can. I am really looking forward to the season starting.
