Yorkshire Carnegie prop Charlie Beech will join newly promoted Coventry Rugby next season after the Midlands club agree a deal with the front rower.

Stevenage-born Beech, 30, began his senior career at Northampton Academy, representing England at Under-19 and Under-20 levels, before gaining Premiership experience at Wasps and Bath.

Originally at Yorkshire Carnegie on loan in the 2013-14 season, the move was made permanent the following season. He has gone on to make 90-plus appearances, latterly at tight head following a switch of sides.

Commented Cov’s director of rugby Rowland Winter: “Charlie is a strong ball carrier and has made an impressive transition from loose head to tight head this season. He will bring plenty of experience, which is invaluable for the development of our pack.”
