A team of rugby talents are hoping to have a successful season in their new kit.

Soham Village College’s Year 10 team has been kitted out thanks to Sweat Gymnasium and former student, Will Marshall.

Will approached the gym after learning that the youngsters were forced to borrow kit from the Ely Tigers on more than one occasion last season.

He also designed the kit, which will be worn during the 2017/18 campaign.

He said: “I wanted to give something back to the college I’d spent five years at – particularly to the PE department.”

Neil Green, owner of the gym, was happy to help.

He said: “I’m very pleased to contribute as I have fond memories of attending the college.

“It was a good college then and it is a good college now.”

The college’s director of PE, Anita Reynolds, said: “I know our students will feel proud to represent the college in their new shirts.”
