Hooker | Academy Ollie Fletcher
DoB: 09/09/2002 Height: 183 cm Weight: 106 kg

Ollie Fletcher joined Newcastle Falcons’ senior academy in the summer of 2021, having studied at Newcastle School for Boys.

A Northumberland Developing Player Pathway (DPP) graduate with excellent game understanding, Ollie has represented the Falcons at all age groups and was called into the England Under-18s set up during the 2020-21 season.

An accomplished cricketer, Ollie chose to pursue the oval ball, and since converting from back-row to hooker at Under-16 level he has made great strides forward.

Earning his England Under-20s cap during the 2021-22 season, Ollie made his first-team debut for the Falcons in March 2022 during the Premiership Rugby Cup trip to Northampton Saints.

Rugby runs in the family, as Ollie is the son of John Fletcher, the former England A centre and ex-Newcastle Falcons director of rugby.

Ollie’s development continued at pace during the 2022-23 season in which he made seven appearances, scoring the winning try at Leicester Tigers in the cup and making his Premiership debut away to Saracens.
