George Ford signs new contract with Bath

  • England fly-half George Ford has signed a new deal with Premiership side Bath
  • The 22-year-old, who moved to The Rec in 2013 from Leicester Tigers
  • Ford has won 17 England caps and started their opening match at the 2015 World Cup
Key playmaker George Ford has renewed his contract with Bath Rugby, revealing today he is more determined than ever to play a leading role in bringing trophies back to the Rec.

Ford, who is the son of head coach Mike Ford, has scored a remarkable 670 points in just 59 appearances for the Blue, Black and Whites since signing from Leicester Tigers in 2013.



Therefore, news the England star has committed to another two years with Bath Rugby will only increase their chances of building upon their Aviva Premiership final loss to Saracens last season.

“It sounds like a cliche, but it really was an easy decision to stay here,” said Ford

“I feel like I’ve become a better player since joining.

“It’s a great environment for me to be in and I’m sure the other lads would say it as well.

“We get challenged every day to become better players, and I love the mindset with which we play the game at Bath. “We’ve had a couple of good seasons, but we’ve not won any trophies yet.

“It’s a burning desire of mine, and all the lads, to bring success”

Ford added: “The two signings that have already been announced for next season – Faletau and Charteris – are world-class international players.

“You would be daft not to want to play in a team like that. The ambition of the club has been there from day one since I’ve been here and I’m really excited about the future.
