CHINNOR’s top try-scorer Craig Holland has left the club for National League 1 counterparts Rosslyn Park.

The winger, who is also comfortable playing full-back and fly-half, crossed 26 times for the Thame-based side during their debut campaign in the third tier of English rugby.

Holland’s departure is due to personal reasons and director of rugby Matt Williams is disappointed to lose one of his star men.

He told the club: “Due to travel time and work commitments, Craig Holland will be running out in National 1 at Rosslyn Park next season, but hopefully not scoring quite so prolifically when we face him.

“I’m genuinely gutted to be losing Craig not just because he was so good for us this season, but he is genuinely a really great bloke.”

It has also been announced four other players will be leaving Chinnor.

Centre Alex Dancer is relocating to New York for work, while tight-head Jack Gilding is moving to Wales and will play for Welsh Premier Division champions Merthyr.

Fellow prop Ricky Cano is also departing, while winger Reon Joseph will not be returning after impressing for parent club Ealing Trailfinders in the Greene King IPA Championship towards the end of the season.

Williams added: “I wish the boys and their families all the happiness on their various adventures and hope they return to Kingsey Road to watch a game when time allows.

“These are huge players to replace, but I’m sure the class of 2019/20 will do us proud.

“In a league where standing still means going backwards we are building a squad to not only replace these losses, but move upwards too.”
