The Academy are excited to announce that an additional fixture has been added to the festive calendar with a Christmas Holiday match against near neighbours, London Welsh who have recently launched their own Academy programme.
The game will take place on Friday 30th December at Old Deer Park, kicking off at 13:00.
Academy Director John Lacey said “This is a great addition to our fixture list, its really encouraging to see another Championship club looking to develop young players. The timing is perfect, falling during the University holidays and a big gap in the League competitions, the game will allow us to check up on how our distance members and U18 Emerging Players are progressing and will also mean we can maintain focus during what can be a long down period for the players.
We would like to take this opportunity to wish London Welsh the very best for this new venture and will be looking to build a close relationship over the coming seasons”.
We would love to see as many of you there to cheer on the boys so make sure you put the date in your diary. Look out for regular updates here and on our Twitter feed @ETFacademy. #futuresbright
