The 24-year-old, who spent the whole of last season with Championship outfit Rotherham Titans, decided on a move back to Sussex after starting his career with Haywards Heath.

Having studied at Cardiff Metropolitan University six years ago, Walsh went from strength-to-strength in the game playing for Darlington Mowden Park, then moving onto Rotherham Titans in the Championship.

Walsh has secured a teaching role at Angmering High School, so a move back to Sussex has resulted in him joining Raiders.

Worthing Raiders assistant coach Ben Coulson was pleased to land someone of Walsh's calibre and said: "We are really excited to have Matt on board. He's played Championship rugby for a reason and we're sure everyone will get to see his talent in a Worthing shirt."
