Newcastle have revealed that Micky Young will rejoin the Kingston Park outfit for 2015/2016, returning after stints with Leicester and Bath.

The 26-year-old first represented the Falcons as a member of the victorious Middlesex 7s side in 2007 before making his first-team debut in 2008.

Across three full seasons, he made a total of 79 appearances making a name for himself as a sniping number nine who played the game at a fast tempo.

Young has also represented England on the World Sevens series circuit with a notable achievement being his try at the victorious 2009 London event.

He has also represented England Saxons during the Churchill Cups, with Falcons director of rugby Dean Richards pleased to welcome him back.

“We’re delighted to have signed Micky and look forward to welcoming him back in the summer,” he said.

“He is very much an example of where we want to be with talented players from the area playing for the club and we are looking forward to seeing him develop in the side.”

Young said: “I’m really excited by the opportunity to come back to Newcastle. It is a massive opportunity for me and from speaking to Dean and a few of the guys who are still at the club from when I was there, the ambition of the club is awesome and I’m excited to be part of a set up out to do big things.

“Everything about the club is positive, from the style of play to the investment in things like the new pitch and I just hope I can use some of the experience I’ve gained in the last four years to make a really positive contribution to the club’s future.”
