Cornish Pirates has announced the signing of wing Arthur Relton for next season.

The 23-year-old sensation was born in Sussex and originally a player for Brighton Blues.

He later moved to Cornwall and featured for the Helston and Penzance & Newlyn RFC's youth sections.

During his time at Exeter University, he participated in the BUCS league and also represented the Exeter Chiefs in Premiership 7s tournaments.

Relton had previously held dual registration with Exeter Chiefs for the past two seasons, making 27 appearances and scoring 13 tries for the Pirates whenever he was available.

Cornish Pirates' joint head coach, Gavin Cattle, described his delight at the signing.

He said: "It is always good to have gifted Cornish bred players in the squad, so capturing Arthur's signature is welcome news.

"Fleet-footed and elusive, and having just turned 23, we are excited at the obvious further potential he possesses, so our natural aim will be to grow that and get the very best out of him."

This comes after the Cornish Pirates recently confirmed that prop forward Ollie Andrews has signed a contract for next season.

Aged 24, the Truro-born star is a former England Students player who will be returning to his roots in Cornwall after spending two seasons playing for Coventry.

He first took to the field at age five at Polwhele House School before attending Truro School and playing at Truro RFC.

After a stint at the Exeter Chiefs Academy, Andrews went on to study at Cardiff Metropolitan University where he joined the 'A' league for Welsh regional team Dragons, as opposed to the Ospreys as reported by the club last week.
