Ealing Trailfinders Academy are pleased to announce back row forward Sam Lunnon as Senior Academy captain for the 2014/15 season. Sam joined the club last season and spent some time with the Championship squad which really improved his skill set before returning to the Development set up where he produced some impressive performances including a great night at the Rosslyn Park Floodlit 7s.
Sam said “It’s an honour and a privilege to be captain of the Academy. I will expect high standards from all of the squad and try to lead by example and encourage everyone to achieve our vision of a successful season.”
Centre Matt Killeen and last years Academy U18 skipper Will Day have been named as vice captains, Academy Director John Lacey said “We have a spread of age grade fixtures this season which means we will need a varied leadership group, Matt brings international experience and Will was an impressive leader last season, I believe they will help Sam greatly through the programme and grow a succession of strong leaders for the Academy going forward.”
