NBS and Tigers support SportsAid

Tigers were out and about with The Nottingham earlier this week, as Tigers academy prospect George Martin visited the club partner's head offices in Nottingham. 

As part of SportsAid which funds the development of young sportspeople, 16-year old George met competition winners, tried out his kicking skills and met other sporting athletes.

Martin is a part of the league-winning Under-18 Tigers Academy side and made his debut for England Under-18s earlier this season. He said: “It’s been great to be invited down by The Nottingham for their staff engagement day. Their links with SportsAid play a big role in supporting the development of young athletes, such as supporting with travel and kit.

“It’s been an amazing season for the team. We’ve worked really hard to get where we are and to go unbeaten for the season is testament to the work of the coaching staff at tigers. Our focus is to build on this next season and make sure we’re prepared to challenge for the title once again.”

Young fans can get the chance to meet four Tigers players at The Nottingham Building Society Tag Festival ahead of Tigers match against Newcastle Falcons at Welford Road on Friday.  

Hosted at Vipers Rugby Club, groups from six primary schools will be taking part in a tag rugby festival following five-weeks of coaching from Tigers rugby development coaches. 

The Nottingham Building Society support the primary school initiative which gives youngsters the chance to learn about tag rugby and compete against other schools in the area. 

Pupils will get the chance to meet the players and ask them questions as well as pose for photos with the boys and club mascot Welford.
