Tom Brennan has joined the Eastbourne Eagles for 2017.
His expected signing was formally announced last night (November 18) by club team manager, Connor Dugard.
Tom, 15, made his debut for the club in the summer on the day of his 15th birthday and promptly broke his collarbone.
He undertook a limited number of meetings for the club in the regular league season but stepped in towards the end for the play-offs and cup matches, which ended with the IT First Eagles winning the KO Cup.
Tom, a Hassocks schoolboy joins Georgie Wood on the team roster for next season.
