Storm Watches Sponsor Championship U20s 10s Tournament

STORM Watches have agreed to renew their sponsorship of the Ealing Trailfinders

Championship U20’s Tournament as it enters its second year in 2019. After a notably successful inaugural contest in 2018 the tournament again brings together the very best of the Championship’s U20’s talent together with several invitation only U20’s teams and is being held at Ealing Trailfinder’s ground in Ealing on Sunday 28th April 2019.

The day will see the emerging U20’s national rugby talent battling it out for the trophy and a variety of other prizes – we already have confirmed attendance from Nottingham Academy (perhaps favourites to retain the trophy after last year’s strong performance) Henley Hawks, Old Albanians, Doncaster Academy coming down south in search of glory and Leicester Tigers who will no doubt be arriving with victory on their minds!

The renewed partnership with STORM Watches will see the continuation of the ‘STORM One to Watch’ programme, where a group of professional judges will select the best of the best in U20’s Championship rugby on the day for special recognition – acknowledging their potential as a future star of the game.

Alya Kepa, STORM brand manager says: ‘After a very successful first year, we are delighted to carry on our support in 2019 for what will be a bigger, better tournament. U20’s rugby continues to enjoy ever increasing attention in a World Cup year and this is a great way to reward good performance and put STORM Watches on the arms of today’s top U20’s rugby talent, some of whom will no doubt soon join the elite group in senior tournaments. We are really looking forward to supporting the day and to watching the stars of the future develop.’

John Lacey, Ealing Trailfinders Academy Director said “It’s great to have a global brand like STORM Watches showing faith and renewing their support for our second tournament. After a fantastic first year we will now build the tournament – we’ll be growing our sponsorship partnerships to help maintain the initiative and bring together the very best of not only the Championship but also the wider group of young men and women enjoying rugby in the UK. We’ve had a great start, and with support like STORM’s – things will only get better!”
