The Club is excited to announce its first batch of Harlequins Heroes
Back in May, Harlequins re-launched its campaign to unearth a superstar at its host of Community Rugby Camps, held in London and across the South East.
The Harlequins Hero of the Year will win a Community Membership for the 2019/20 season (which includes two tickets to a match from each competition which the Club is competing in), and behind-the-scenes access to a Senior Squad Sharpen session at The Stoop with the chance to meet the players and have shirts and memorabilia signed.
Harlequins Heroes are those who play the game in the best spirit and with the most endeavour and will be chosen by Community coaches at the conclusion of each camp. The eventual prize-winner will then be selected in a grand draw at the end of the summer.
Our collection of summer camps have already rendered some fantastic individual performances from young players, however only the best have been given the chance to become this year’s Harlequins Hero.
Selected from camps at Chichester RFC, Crowborough RFC, Effingham and Leatherhead RFC and Dorking RFC, these four players have embodied the true spirit of Harlequins and because of this are in with a chance of winning this fantastic prize.
Harlequins Hero Round Up
Samuel Bradford (8), Chichester RFC
Samuel showed great passion and always played the game with a positive and resilient attitude. He was always on hand to support his fellow players and assist with the coaches where he could. He would be a great asset to any team.
Christopher Lee (13), Crowborough RFC
Chris came to the camp as a football fan but soon discovered a burgeoning love for the game. He displayed a fantastic work ethic and showed unwavering determination to improve and is now pursuing the game further.
Noah Ryan (5), Effingham and Leatherhead RFC
Despite being the youngest on the camp, Noah never let his age get in the way and persevered through every challenge set. He was a pleasure to coach and set an excellent example for the rest of the group.
Shaun Cockburn (13), Dorking RFC
Shaun was exceptional both on and off the pitch and showed super leadership skills. He was always keen to help those around him and consistently age his all in every drill.
