First three members of Trailfinders Rugby Academy confirmed
Ealing Trailfinders is delighted to confirm the first three members of the Trailfinders Rugby Academy as part of the Scholarship Programme with Brunel University London.
Harry Dugmore, Ewan Fenley and Cameron Terry have all reported for pre-season training alongside the first team as their journey at the Trailfinders gets underway.
They will begin their university studies in September at Brunel as the path to BUCS Super League starts on rugby’s newest academic programme.
Dugmore, a former Harlequins academy player from the age of 13 until 18 is an old Whitgift pupil who has been gaining valuable rugby experience with Camberley RFC. As well as Harlequins he has also represented England at Under 16 and Under 18 level, making the back-rower a hugely exciting prospect for the Trailfinders.
Fenley, a scrum-half who has been in the Gloucester Academy attended Cheltenham Bournside School as well as playing for Old Patesians. With a pre-season ahead of him alongside the first team, he will learn from the likes of Jordan Burns, Nathan Fowles and Craig Hampson in training.
Terry is another back-rower who is eyeing up an opportunity with the Trailfinders. He has graduated from Gloucester’s Academy which is famous for producing talent and he will be looking to continue that trend by making the transition in to the side at Trailfinders Sports Club.
Director of Rugby Ben Ward says this is the start of a hugely exciting period for the club.
“We are delighted to welcome these players on board and have plenty more announcements to come. Harry, Ewan and Cameron are all players who have a lot to offer at both Ealing Trailfinders and Brunel.”
Brunel Head of Rugby Gareth Rise is pleased to have these players signed up for the new programme.
“All three guys are fantastic prospects and we look forward to supporting them both academically and in rugby. They will have a huge part to play with both Brunel and Ealing Trailfinders moving forward.”
