With a new academic year upon us, we look ahead to the hotly anticipated Daily Mail Trophy kicking off. XXV Performance Sportswear, exclusive to Stevensons, are the proud sponsors of The Daily Mail Trophy video highlights package for some of the key clashes coming up.
Our association to the competition does not end there as we already provide high-performance XXV Sportswear to some of the top teams competing. The teams we hope XXV can help power to victory are:
Abingdon School finished in a respectable 53rd position in 2015/2016 season boasting a 57.1% win rate. Along the way, they managed to claim some outstanding victories against schools such as Rugby School and Cheltenham College. With another stacked fixture list for the year ahead, we are confident Abingdon School can repeat last season’s success.
After starting last season with back to back defeats in the Daily Mail Trophy Ashville College recovered to win 3 matches on the trot, leaving them with a 60% win rate and 56th in the merit table. With a faster start this year, Ashville College could be one of the teams to fear in this year’s competition.
St Edward’s School are certainly a force to be reckoned with when it comes to The Daily Mail Trophy. They were able to finish in the top half of the table last year, with a win rate of 66.7%. Some narrow defeats took the gloss off what was a mightily impressive season for St. Edward’s School. With some huge clashes to look forward to against teams such as Malvern College and Marlborough College 2016/2017 will be a year to remember for the First XV at St. Edward’s School.
Sam Killin, XXV Brand Manager, commented “We hope XXV Performance Sportswear will help our partner schools power to victory in The Daily Mail Trophy. We look forward to watching the games through The Daily Mail Video Highlights Package which XXV is sponsoring.”
Of course, we wish every team entered into the prestigious competition all the best on what promises to be a fiercely competitive season of rugby.
