Sale re-sign wing Arscott

Date published: February 4 2015

Sale Sharks have secured another key contract renewal with confirmation that wing Tom Arscott has penned a new two-year deal with the club.

Arscott becomes the seventh member of Steve Diamond’s squad to extend his stay with the Premiership side and several more renewals are in the pipeline.

The 27-year-old joined Sale Sharks from London Welsh in mid-2013 and has gone on to establish himself as a vital cog of Diamond’s first team squad.

He was in blistering form earlier this season, scoring five tries in as many Aviva Premiership games before suffering a hamstring injury.

However, Diamond was delighted to secure another signature to boost his long-term planning and insisted that Arscott’s best is yet to come.

“Tom has been playing really well and scoring lots of tries,” said Diamond.

“He’s a great lad and he’s young and his best rugby is still to come.

“He likes the environment here and he’s really settled in the area and I think that there’s a lot more to come from Tom over the next few years. So we’re delighted he has agreed to stay with us.”
