Bath Rugby can confirm that loosehead prop Charlie Beech, currently on loan at Leeds Carnegie, will be joining the IPA Greene King Championship side on a permanent basis, from next season.
27-year-old Beech joined Bath from London Wasps in 2011 and made 41 career appearances for the Club, but starting opportunities have been limited for the Stevenage-born forward. However, his time at Leeds Carnegie this season has been prosperous, with the West Yorkshiremen currently lying fourth in the league.
"I'll look back on my three years at Bath with very fond memories," said Beech. "It was a great place for me to develop, and now I look forward to getting stuck in with Leeds."
Bath forward coach, Neal Hatley, said: "It's been hard for Charlie to get valuable game time with Paul James and Nathan Catt being in such consistently good form. He's a very talented young prop who I believe will flourish at Leeds with more matches under his belt, and we wish him all the best."
