The first new squad member for Haven's 2020 season back in the Championship is TOM WALKER.Tom has joined Haven on a two year deal from Cumbrian neighbours Barrow.The prop forward made his professional debut in 2015 for Workington. He joined Barrow Raiders for the 2017 season and has played there since. He was part of the Raiders team that beat Haven in the League 1 promotion final in 2017.Walker said "I just can't wait to get started, I've been keeping an eye on the club all year and they've done great. I'm looking forward to working under Charlo & Jonty as I believe massively in a local based team and its working what they are doing. I'm looking forward to catching up with old friends and former team mates. Finally and most importantly retaining championship status and giving a few teams a shock especially when they have to travel up here to the Recre with the solid local team we have."Whitehaven Assistant Coach Jonty Gorley is delighted to get Walker on board saying,"It's great to have Tom as our first off season signing, this sends out a message that we are a club who is going local again and the acquisition of someone of Tom's calibre proves this. Tom is a formidable front rower who has played in the championship for the last 5 or 6 seasons. His defence is solid and front on he can be quite a force. Tom can do big minutes as well as proved at Barrow last year. As a front row he's still to reach his full potential as he is only in his mid 20's. I coached Tom as a 14/15 year old and could tell then that he had a big future in the game and I'm glad he's came to Whitehaven to continue with that."
