Leicester lad Harry is a product of the Stoneygate DPP centre plying his trade as a wing. First spotted by Tigers scouts during a county cup semi-final with local team Oadby Wigstonians, Sturmey has progressed through the youth ranks and will be looking to learn from former Tiger and academy senior development coach Anthony Allen.
“I remember watching him at Welford Road and he was one of my favourite players”, he says.
“To have the opportunity to build a relationship and learn from him is hugely exciting and I think will be key to my development here."
Harry was a Tigers season ticket holder for a number of years when he was younger.
“I think my first game was a European match. I remember it was a Friday and I was about eight or nine. I came with my grandad and we stood in The Breedon Stand - I was quite small so couldn’t really see much, but the noise was so loud.”
