Skipper Dave Seymour commits ‘future years’ to Sale Sharks after signing new deal

By James Scott

Sale Sharks captain David Seymour is delighted to nail his colours to the mast and sign a new contract to extend his stay at the club.

Seymour, 28, became the third Sharks player to put pen to paper for the club after Rob Miller and Dan Braid signed up on Friday.

The High-Wycombe-born flanker joined Sale from Saracens in 2009, and the hard-working fans’ favourite is determined to stay put and improve the club’s fortunes.

“I look forward to spending my future years at the club,” said Seymour.

“I have enjoyed my time at the club and whilst we are currently at the foot of the Premiership, there is a good strong team spirit and we feel we can rescue our season and reward our loyal fans.”

Seymour was awarded the captaincy at the start of the season, on the back of his commitment and leadership qualities, taking over from Sam Tuitupou.

Director of rugby Steve Diamond championed the contribution his captain fantastic has made over his 15 appearances this season.

“He is a great player and a natural leader,” said Diamond. “We are delighted he has agreed a new deal.

“I have had the pleasure of coaching David at both Saracens and Sale Sharks.”

Seymour will lead out his side at Welford Road against Leicester Tigers this weekend, with basement boys Sale looking to improve on their perilous league position.
