Rugby internationals return to the College

We were delighted to welcome back two Old Cliftonians to the College for a charitable evening. 

Immanuel Feyi-Waboso and Ioan Lloyd, who since leaving Clifton have begun exciting careers playing for Exeter Chiefs and the Scarlets respectively, joined us for an evening of chat, skill tests and games. 

As part of the Q&A section, Immanuel and Ioan reflected on their experience as regular starters for England and Wales at the last Six Nations Tournament, and how our sports programme gave them a strong foundation to begin their journeys.

All proceeds for the event went to the charity United Through Sport, who deliver structured sports sessions to disadvantaged young people in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Our travelling rugby squad will be working with them as part of their upcoming tour to Argentina. 

Matt Salter, Director of Rugby for the College said “The opportunity for our current students and parents to have such a close and intimate evening with two rugby internationals and OCs was truly amazing. The messages that Ioan and Immanuel spoke of were so relevant and gave a lot for our students to reflect upon. I would like to thank both for helping us raise funds for our charity and for joining in and contributing so much to the fun had by all.”

We would like to thank Immanuel and Ioan for giving us their time to come back, and to everyone who joined us in aid of this very worthy cause.
