Jack Nowell, Signed England RFU Shirt. BID HERE AND OPEN eBay
Jack Nowell was originally a product of the Cornish Pirates junior section. He went to school at Mounts Bay School, Heamoor/An Hay and then Truro College, where he took a BTEC in Sport Performance and Excellence.
On 9 January 2014, Nowell was included in the England squad for the 2014 Six Nations Championship, after injuries to Marland Yarde and Christian Wade. He made his debut for England in the 26–24 defeat to France and scored his first try during the 52–11 win over Italy.
Nowell returned to the England team in the 3rd match of the 2015 Six Nations Championship, replacing Jonny May in the starting lineup. He then started the following game against Scotland, making a number of clean breaks and scoring his first Twickenham try. On the final day of the championship, England needed to beat France by 27 points to clinch the title, yet another assured performance from Nowell with two tries to his name couldn’t get England over the line as they won 55-35.
From a fishing family in Newlyn, we were very pleased that Jack agreed to support the Fishermen’s Mission. He is featured in our fundraising photographic album, Salt of the Earth and now he’s agreed to sign the England RFU shirt and all proceeds to the www.fishermensmission.org.uk. A huge thanks to Jack Nowell for his support and best wishes for his World Cup debut.
