Speaking about the appointments Terry Sands, Performance Director at Bury St Edmunds Rugby Club said : "These six new signings, together with Salva Palmares Lloret who joined us last week, will increase the strength in depth within our Pro-am squad. We have started to build next seasons squad early to enable us to get a good pre-season together.”

"We have a great coaching team at Bury and our new head coach Jon Curry will help to get the best out of what is becoming an exciting squad. We want to be hitting the ground running at the start of 2018./19 season."
