PREMIERSHIP NEWS: England Sevens international Cameron Cowell has been signed into Newcastle Falcons' senior academy squad. 

The 21-year-old can play at fullback, wing or scrumhalf and has represented England at Under-18, U-19 and U-20 levels. Playing 38 matches for England in the World Sevens Series, his quick feet, vision and pace have helped him score nine tries, adding a further 32 conversions.
 
A product of London Irish's academy, Cowell moves north to join a Falcons side fresh from recording their highest league finish in 11 years.
 
"Cameron is a tremendously exciting player with pace to burn, who will fit in with our attacking philosophy. We have seen a lot of him in Sevens and are excited about helping his transition back to XVs, much as we did with Marcus Watson two years ago.
 
"In terms of his playing position he is able to play at fullback, wing or scrumhalf and as we work more closely with Cameron we will look to find more of a specialist role for him to focus on," Falcons first team skills coach and academy manager, Mark Laycock said. 
 
Cowell becomes Newcastle's 11th signing for next season following the previously-announced arrivals of Toby Flood (Toulouse), Josh Matavesi (Ospreys), DTH van der Merwe (Scarlets), Maxime Mermoz (Leicester Tigers), Tevita Cavubati (Worcester Warriors), Gary Graham (Jersey), Joel Matavesi (Redruth), Ryan Burrows (Yorkshire Carnegie), Sam Stuart (Richmond) and Sami Mavinga (Lyon).
 
His arrival also completes Newcastle Falcons' senior academy line-up for 2017/18, the other newcomers to the senior academy squad being England U-18 centre Charlie Wilson (promoted from junior academy) and Darlington Mowden Park wing Adam Radwan. Callum Chick and Glen Young are promoted to the first-team squad, with David Nelson, Andrew Foster, Archie Erskine and Dan Marshall all released.
 
Newcastle Falcons senior academy squad 2017/18: Jamie Blamire (hooker), Adam Brocklebank (prop), Brett Connon (flyhalf/fullback), Cameron Cowell (fullback/wing/scrumhalf), Max Davies (flank/lock), Ruaridh Dawson (scrumhalf), Adam Radwan (wing), Ben Stevenson (centre/wing), Simon Uzokwe (flank), Josh Williams (lock), Charlie Wilson (centre).
