Seetec Sponsorship Supports Young Rugby Talent

Rochford Rugby Club

Thriving Rochford Hundred Rugby Club will be starting its new season with a brand new First Aid room, thanks to sponsorship from Seetec.

Seetec has also become shirt sponsor for the Club’s Academy team, which develops talented young rugby players to become future first-team stars.

Rochford Hundred is celebrating the First XV’s promotion to London 1 (North) after winning the London 2 (North East) championship and finishing last season unbeaten. The club, established more than 50 years ago, now has more than 650 members. It runs ten senior and junior teams for men, women, boys and girls, as well as mini rugby sessions for two to 12-year-olds.

Club Chairman Peter Van Den Broeck said: “Our first team coach, physio, nutritionist and fitness coaches are all involved with the Academy team to ensure the young players are well prepared to progress to the senior teams and have the right training and fitness regimes.

“Working with Seetec is a great fit as they are encouraging young talent outside of rugby and can help our Academy players who are thinking of getting into work or furthering their education. Rochford Hundred really appreciates Seetec’s support, both to the club and the young people in this area.”

David Reynolds, Non-Executive Director of Seetec, said: “Seetec aims to encourage and develop young talent and we hope our sponsorship of the Academy will help them to thrive and succeed in senior rugby.

“The new First Aid room provides much-improved facilities to support all the teams – but we hope it doesn’t have too much use!”
