Career details:

A student at Bath University when he signed for the club in 1995 studying Economics and Politics, Charlie Harrison made 28 appearances for Bath in a career that spanned three seasons from 1995/1996 to 1997/1998. Educated at Howsham Hall School in Yorkshire and Mount St. Mary’s Charlie made his Bath Rugby debt on the 2nd February 1996 as a replacement in a 10-27 defeat at Swansea. A regular in the scrum half role in the 1996/1997 season, Charlie managed to start 15 games and made a further six appearances as a replacement, scoring two tries and kicking three conversions. With Andy Nicol and Ian Sanders also in the squad, the battle for the number nine shirt was intense and with the added experience of full international honours was one that Nicol always seemed likely to win. Charlie however never let the club down when called upon and was deservedly capped himself at under-21 level, making his debut for England under-21’s against Scotland under-21 and scoring a try in the 35-26 victory. With Nicol ensconced as captain of the club, chances were few and far between and Charlie cut his losses and signed for Orrell, before also starring for Bedford Blues and playing an integral role in Rotherham’s National League Championship year that saw them promoted to the Zurich Premiership.
