The Cornish Pirates announce the first new signings for next season

They are as follows:

Alex Cheesman - This 23 years old signing from Wasps, who is described as a dynamic, physical centre, has previously played for Marlow, Henley Hawks and for Sale Sharks. London-born, he is also an Oxford 'Blue', and a former back-rower who was converted to play in midfield by Brian Ashton. His other honours include playing for England Students and being a member of the England Sevens squad.

Alaifatu 'Junior' Fatialofa - Making a return to Cornwall, this well-known former 'Pirate' joins from Bristol and will add vast experience to a young backline next season, enhancing both the attacking and defensive components of the Pirates play. A man who always seems to perform, he is excited and looking forward to wearing the 'black, red and white' once again.

Kieran Hallett - A former Ireland U21s player, fly-half Kieran is a well-known figure at Championship level, having previously played and impressed for Bedford Blues, Plymouth Albion and for Nottingham, from where he departs to join the Cornish Pirates. A prolific goal kicker and astute game manager, he will add to the Pirates squad and to the competition for places.

Adam Clayton - Back-rower Adam, aged 24, joins from Birmingham & Solihull where he was a shining light before being sidelined with a knee injury that ruined his 2011-12 season. A product of Bath Academy, Adam feels that he couldn't ask to be anywhere better than at the Pirates as he now looks to reignite his career.

Ben Prescott - Tripoli-born Ben is an experienced tight head prop forward who has impressed when playing against the Pirates in the past.. Aged 33, his former clubs include Glasgow Warriors, Waterloo, Rotherham Titans, Northampton Saints, and Nottingham. By acquiring Ben's signature it is expected that his presence will improve the Pirates scrum still further.

Gary Johnson - A product of the original intake of London Irish Academy in 2003, lock forward Gary has played over 50 games for 'Irish', including playing against Leicester Tigers in the 2009 Guinness Premiership final, and he has also captained their 'A' team. An abrasive forward who is comfortable across the back 5 of the scrum, the former England U18s player joins the Pirates after having been on loan to London Welsh.
