England star confirms retirement with immediate effect

by Saba Gulmagarashvili

Charlie Sharples, a long-serving player of Gloucester Rugby, has announced his retirement from professional rugby.

In a career that has seen him become one of Gloucester Rugby’s major contributors in the professional era, the Cherry and White winger has played 275 times for his childhood club and scored 455 points.

Sharples has been with Gloucester Rugby since he was 14 years old, rising through the ranks of the academy to make his first-team debut in the 2007-08 season.

Sharples was a four-time England international, scoring twice against Fiji at Twickenham during the 2011 Autumn Internationals.

Sharples, who is known for his speed and natural try-scoring ability, is a much-loved member of the Cherry and White squad who has contributed as much off the field as he has on it.

When Gloucester Rugby defeated Edinburgh Rugby at the Twickenham Stoop in 2015, he helped the Cherry and Whites win the Challenge Cup.
