England international Ollie graduated to the first XV from the Tigers Academy, and is just one of many leading Tigers to have developed with the club from an early age. The club's investment in youth is managed within the Tigers Academy and we constantly strive to develop the facilities available.
With supporters and the club benefiting, the Tigers Club Savers Account will enable us to continue to invest in the Tigers Academy and develop the next generation of players.
Ollie responded to our request for help, and was surprised at how easy it was to open his account. "I clicked the link on the Tigers homepage and went straight through to the opening form, which took me less than five minutes to complete," he said. "My account details were emailed to me immediately so I could deposit money and a welcome pack came through the post a couple of days later."
The Account provides supporters with an attractive rate of interest, with the Tigers Academy receiving a bonus of up to 1.25% of the average total balances held - so every account opened has an impact.
"I'm told that some football clubs have had similar accounts for years, and they receive substantial funding as a result," Ollie added. "I am sure rugby supporters can get behind their club just the same. I've opened my account, when are you going to open yours?"
See the Tigers Club Savers link on the club website for more information on how you can help find the next generation of players.
