East Durham College Rugby Academy
« on: January 20, 2016, 09:50:15 AM »
East Durham College are recruiting for the upcoming academic year and are looking for both males and females who are leaving school who are interested in taking rugby and their academic study to the next level. To be eligible for one of the GOLD scholarship packages you must complete the A Level programme or a BTEC in a sport related discipline. However, you can come to college and be part of the rugby academy and do a number of courses including, engineering, joinery, performing arts, hair and beauty and many more.

If you are interested in what we can offer you, we would like to invite you and your parents in for a chat with me and the lecturers here at the college. We have some of the best facilities in the North East, which is reinforced by our selection to host Durham County training for U16s, U18s and U20s.

Historically the rugby academy here has produced a number of exceptional players including David Wilson, James Fitzpatrick and others who have moved out of the area to play for the likes of Ealing and London Scottish while completing their university studies.

The scholarship scheme is shown below, if you are interested or know anyone who may be interested in this great opportunity contact me, Craig Gilmour Head of Rugby on : craig.gilmour@eastdurham.ac.uk or 0191 518 8319
