Jack Nowell to officially leave the Exeter Chiefs

After much speculation, Exeter winger Jack Nowell has announced his upcoming departure from the club where he spent his entire career. The Devon man addressed fans with an emotional social media post this afternoon:

“So here we go.

“Never thought I’d be writing something like this, but I suppose every good thing comes to an end eventually.

“Unfortunately, my time at Exeter Chiefs is up and what a time l’ve had!
You’ve helped me go from a teenage boy to a kinda mature father or three. l’ve met some amazing people and made so many friends. I’ve been lucky enough to have created the most perfect family, who I love very much, so Exeter has a massive space in our hearts.

“My first thanks has to go to Ricky Pellow and Robin Cowling, without you two none of this would have been possible. To all the boys I’ve played with over my 12 years at the club, I love you all. You guys are the guys who have made my time so special and memorable and I owe you everything.

“Thanks to the boss Tony Rowe for the belief you have always shown in the team, obviously through the good times, but especially the bad times. I feel privileged to have worked with Rob Baxter, Ali Hepher and Rob Hunter for so many years, a lot of our success has been down to their commitment to make our side the best we can be.

“Obviously the physio team, l’ve worked very closely with you guys, Jamie Fulton, Steve Haw, Nick Cox, James Parkes and Bobby Beddard, you lads have put me back together a few times now and allowed me to be my best on the field. Can’t thank you enough for what you’ve done. Every single person at Exeter Chiefs, I would love to name you all, but I’m Cornish so that’s too much writing for me!

“To our fans, you are truly the best!
Thank you for coming along this journey with me, you have always been there for my family and always made my time at the club enjoyable as possible. The commitment you guys put in, not only for home games, but also away games, is truly amazing and will always be appreciated by the team.
Lastly, I feel very lucky to have been part of this.

“Exeter Chiefs team over the last 12 years and to have achieved the things we have. I will always be an Exeter fan and I’m sure to be back if not as a player, definitely as a supporter!

“Au revoir pour le moment”

Despite no official news as to Nowell’s next destination, he is being heavily linked with French side La Rochelle. Nowell’s sign off in French appears to be a clear indication of his future plans.
