After just one season in the Club’s Academy, Jack Farrimond has impressed enough to join the senior squad for pre-season training ahead of the 2024 Super League title defence campaign.
A stand-out for Lancashire in their academy Origin win over Yorkshire in 2023, the goal-kicking half was also called up to England’s Academy squad under Head Coach Paul Anderson ahead of their fixture against France in July – although missed out on the match day team.
Farrimond was named the 2023 academy player of the year – winning the Edwards-Johnson Memorial trophy and has impressed Head Coach Matt Peet, adding depth to his playmaker options that includes Harry Smith, Jai Field and Bevan French.
A breakthrough season saw Farrimond score 11 tries and 71 goals in 12 starts for the Academy side, he was also a regular name on the Reserves team sheet as they went on to win the 2023 Reserves Grand Final.
