Premiership youngster makes loan move to Jersey Reds

Promising teenage wing and Wales under 20 cap Alex Morgan has joined Jersey Reds on loan from Gallagher Premiership side Gloucester.

The 19-year-old, who has featured in Gloucester’s squad for both the Premiership Cup and Shield (A team) competitions, arrived in Jersey on Sunday and is in contention for the Reds’ home game against Nottingham this weekend.

Morgan was born in Cardiff and made his debut for Wales u20 in the Six Nations clash against Scotland in March. He is initially expected to be part of the Reds’ squad until Christmas.

Jersey Reds Director of Rugby Harvey Biljon said: “Alex is a talented young player and we believe this will be a great opportunity for him to evolve his game while playing a good standard of rugby, in the same way as other players have spent time in Jersey before becoming regular starters for their Premiership clubs.”
