Jersey RFC have confirmed the departure of Aaron Penberthy at the end of the current season after a three-year stay at the club.

Penberthy, 23, joined the Reds from Cornish Pirates in summer 2013 and has made around 50 appearances for Jersey, split between the fly-half and full-back positions.

Penberthy is expected to make his final appearance for Jersey in the Ipes Siam Cup clash with rivals Guernsey on May 7th.

"Aaron and I have talked at length about his future, and I have told him that I think the best thing for him at this stage of his career is to seek a new challenge where he will get more regular game-time.

"We have known each other for a long time, since we were both at Pirates, but decisions like this are part of the nature of professional sport. Aaron's made a significant contribution during his time here - the club is grateful for what he's done and wishes him well for the future."

– Head Coach Harvey Biljon
