Young forward Ollie Chessum returned to Welford Road in 2020 from Championship club Nottingham after previous experience in the Tigers academy programme.
He was a member of the England Under-20s training squad in 2019/20 and has also represented England Counties.
Brought up as a Tigers fan while playing locally with Kesteven RFC, Ollie represented the club in the Premiership Rugby Shield during 2019/20 as a teenager and joined his new colleagues for the first time during the lockdown period in June 2020.
He made his senior debut in a Gallagher Premiership fixture at Gloucester in August that year and two further appearances before the end of the extended season.
