Harry Aaronson Signs New Cornwall Deal
October 27, 2023
Cornwall RLFC are delighted to announce that Harry Aaronson has signed a new two-year deal with the club, keeping him in the Duchy until 2025.
The winger first joined the Choughs in February 2022 and made his debut in the club’s first ever match against North Wales Crusaders.
He scored an eye-catching intercept try in Cornwall’s professional bow and made history a week later, by scoring the Choughs’ first ever try on home soil with Midlands Hurricanes the visitors.
Aaronson finished the 2022 campaign as Cornwall’s leading try scorer and last season, he bagged a spectacular score in the Choughs’ first ever Betfred Challenge Cup tie, with the game televised live by the BBC.
“Speaking to Mike (Abbott, Cornwall RLFC head coach) and Beachy (John Beach, Cornwall RLFC general manager), I am excited to see the direction that Cornwall is moving in,” Aaronson told cornwallrlfc.co.uk.
“We have a really tight knit group of players and that extends to all the backroom staff and supporters too. All this contributes to what I see as an upward trajectory for Cornwall and I love being a part of it.
“As everyone knows, I have played at this level and in the Championship for a number of clubs, but my time with Cornwall has seen me get the most enjoyment out of my rugby for a number of years.
“My job is to score tries and I know a lot was made about my try in the Challenge Cup. It was special in a competition that has been around for a long time and has made some real rugby league legends.
“It is something I will remember for a long time but I feel that with my experience, I can help some of our young lads who are just making their way in the game too.
“I am what you would consider a steady head as we are a very young team, but a team that is progressing.”
Meanwhile, Memorial Ground chief Mike Abbott, added: “We are pleased to have Harry back with us and he will stay with Cornwall for the next two years which is an added bonus.
“Several clubs in League 1 were after him because wingers like Harry are hard to find at this level.
“Harry has shown a huge amount of commitment to play for us and as a club we would also like to thank his employer for enabling his rugby career to continue and to continue with Cornwall.”
