As part of celebrations to mark its relocation to new premises at Liberation House, Rossborough brought former Saracens captain and England Rugby Union player Hugh Vyvyan and the Gallagher Premiership Rugby Trophy to Jersey.
Rossborough, which is a Gallagher company, has strong ties to local rugby, while Gallagher became the official title sponsor of Premiership Rugby at the start of the season.
As part of the sponsorship, the Gallagher Premiership Rugby Trophy was brought to the island and put on display to the public at Liberation House and the Jersey Rugby Club.
During his visit, Rugby Union legend Hugh Vyvyan welcomed students from De La Salle College, Grainville, Hautlieu and Victoria College to view the trophy and shared experiences from his professional rugby career, including the importance of injury prevention.
Vyvyan lifted the Premiership Trophy for Saracens in 2011, in a game against Leicester Tigers where he came off the bench to make his record-breaking 238th Premiership appearance. He went on to achieve a remarkable 347 appearances in his club career playing for Newcastle and Saracens.
“As a Gallagher company, we are a part of one of the largest global insurance broking groups. We are immensely proud to leverage the group’s sponsorship of Premiership Rugby by bringing over Hugh Vyvyan and the Premiership League Trophy for islanders to enjoy. I am sure that seeing the trophy will inspire the Jersey Reds Youth Academy for the season ahead,” said Rossborough Group Managing Director James Anderson.
