Congratulations to Jonny on your rugby contract!
Congratulations to Jonny Green, Year 13 student and 1st XV rugby captain, who has signed a full-time two-year professional rugby contract with Harlequins. Jonny has represented the Harlequins U18 team for the past three years and has had the honour of captaining the team for the past two years.
Jonny played in every game for Wales in this year’s U18 Six Nations tournament and was chosen in the ‘Team of Tournament’ as one of the outstanding players. Jonny is really looking forward to beginning his professional career with the Harlequins and says: “I know there will be many challenges ahead and lessons to be learnt, but hopefully going into a professional will help me to develop my game. Exciting times ahead.”
Liam Doubler, Director of Sport at Seaford, said how proud everyone at Seaford was and wished him all the best on his career as a professional rugby player with Harlequins.
“Jonny has been at Seaford College since Prep School and he embodies the Seaford Sport core values of ‘Respect, Teamwork, Courage, Trust’ that underpin our community. It will be strange on campus without Jonny next year, but he has said that he’ll be back as much as he can to help support our young student athletes.
“He loves a challenge and I know he will make the most of every day with Harlequins in order to be the best he can be. He has worked so hard on and off the pitch and he has developed into an outstanding rugby player, leader and person during his time with us. He is one of the hardest working players I’ve ever coached, and he thoroughly deserves this opportunity.
“We are all looking forward to seeing him wear the famous Quins jersey over the next couple of years and everyone at Seaford will be cheering him on wherever they are. Ad Alta Jonny!”
