Leicester Tigers can confirm the signing of Jamie Shillcock ahead of the 2023/24 season.

The 25-year-old will join Tigers from Mitsubishi DynaBoars in Japan.

Shillcock previously played for Worcester Warriors and spent a short stint with Bath Rugby and has represented England at age-grade level.

The versatile back made his senior debut for Worcester as a 17-year-old in 2015 and made almost a century of appearances for the club before joining Bath.

Speaking about the addition of Shillcock, Leicester Tigers Head Coach Richard Wigglesworth said: “We are very excited about Jamie joining us next season and seeing what he brings to Leicester Tigers.”

“He has played a lot of rugby for a young man and offers great versatility, through the backline, as well as being a goal-kicking option.

“At only 25, Jamie has shown great maturity during a very tough season on and off the field and is as much the person we want at Leicester Tigers as he is the player.”

Discussing the move to Leicester Tigers, Shillcock said: “When I first spoke to the club and they laid out the plans and where they thought I fit in them, it was just too good a chance to turn down.”

“I think the first game I ever watched live was a Leicester Tigers game and even attended their Rugby Camps when I was a kid, so it’s a club I have always had a connection to and when the opportunity came, it was just one I couldn’t say no to.

“It’s exciting for me that I will be able to be a part of what the club is doing in bringing through a really good core group of players and it’s something that I can’t wait to get on board with.”
