CHINNOR have revealed a triple signing as their first new recruits ahead of the 2023/24 campaign.

The Thame-based side finished eighth in National League 1 last season, with former England player Nick Easter leading them to nine wins from 14 matches after taking on the director of rugby role in December.

Pre-season is set to begin at the start of July for Chinnor, with Easter looking to build on last year as the Oxfordshire outfit prepare for a fifth campaign in National League 1.

Alun Walker, Izzy Wharton and Matt Woodward have all been announced as the club’s first signings of the summer.

Walker is an experienced hooker and joins following nine years with Ealing Trailfinders, where he won the Championship league title, Championship Cup, British & Irish Cup, and National League 1.

Wharton, a young back row from South Africa, helped False Bay to become Super League A champions last year and represented Western Province Under-20s in 2021.

Woodward is a powerful prop, capable of playing loosehead and tighthead. The Durham University graduate represented England Students last year, and has previously been with Caldy, Coventry and Ampthill.

Meanwhile, Josh Pieterse and Charley Robinson have both left the club.

Pieterse rejoined for a second spell last summer, but injury restricted him to just six appearances this season, while Robinson made 23 appearances in total, scoring five tries, since joining in 2019.
