Clear Idea Finance Sponsors Ipswich School Rugby
Clear Idea Finance are proud and delighted to announce that we've partnered with Ipswich School to sponsor its cutting-edge rugby programme for 2021 & 2022.
Richard has a long-standing connection with rugby at Ipswich School, which goes back three generations and almost 75 years. His stepfather played rugby there in the 1940s and 1950s, Richard played rugby until 1990, and his two young sons, one already in the Prep School and another hopefully joining soon, may also take to the rugby pitch in the near future.
"Rugby is such a wonderful sport, providing huge benefits for physical and mental health. There’s nothing like it for building friendships, team spirit, camaraderie and strength of character."
Jacob Ford, Head of Rugby (and brother of current England fly-half George Ford and son of Mike Ford, coach at Leicester Tigers) has made it Ipswich School's mission to become the leading rugby school in the country, and as passionate supporters of the game, we're delighted to join them on that journey.
Our sponsorship is in addition to Ipswich School’s partnership with HUDL, which has enabled a new analysis room to be opened in the Sixth Form Centre. Here pupils can meet with the sports coaching teams to review their match play and training performance in order to improve their techniques on the pitch.
It's fair to say, rugby has changed a lot since Richard's playing days at Ipswich in the 1990s!
"Today’s rugby experience at Ipswich School is completely unrecognisable from when I was there and it's incredibly exciting to see the school's rugby programme pushing the boundaries of what's possible."
We look forward to following the 1st XV team's progress this year and cheering them on from the sidelines! Please click here to read more about the partnership and our reasons for sponsoring this excellent programme.
