Christ College Brecon, one of Wales’ oldest and most successful independent schools, is delighted to announce a new two-year sponsorship deal with prestigious City financial services firm Killik & Co.
This new sponsorship deal means that Killik & Co will become sponsors of rugby at Christ College across all year groups within the senior school. The new 1st XV shirts were premiered at their final pre-season fixture against Eton College on Friday 4th September. Partner at Kiilik & Co, Fabrizio Argiolas, was on hand to meet the 1st XV squad in their new team kit.
Head of Christ College, Mrs Emma Taylor, said, “We are thrilled to be able to announce this exciting new relationship with what is without doubt one of the most prestigious financial services companies in the City. Killik & Co have shown a great passion for the sport of Rugby over the years, being sponsors of Barbarians Rugby since 2009, and their interest in educating young people on financial management adds further synergy with a school like Christ College.
We look forward to working closely with them in the future and collaborating to promote the passion and commitment involved in team sports – all valuable skills needed in the workplace and greatly valued by graduate employers.”
Christ College hosted Eton College on Friday in a pre-season friendly to mark the end of Eton’s tour of South Wales.
Eton’s 1st XV Coach, Ian Swann, Old Breconian, brought with him a strong squad that had easily beaten Neath Port Talbot College earlier in the week.
The match was played over three 20-minute periods with Eton running out winners 39-10. The first period saw a bright start from Christ College but the experienced and dangerous Eton backs managed four tries with Christ College getting a penalty through fly half James Newey. The second period was much more even and Christ College’s good forward work led to a well-deserved try, with Rhys Hughes diving over from close range. Eton managed a further two scores in the final period but the Christ College boys gave a superb account of themselves.
The fixture was a great opportunity for Christ College pupils to test themselves against strong competition from a much larger English school. It attracted a large crowd of Old Breconians, parents, pupils and locals and showcased the strength of the Rugby programme at the school. The regular season begins properly on Friday when Christ College 1st XV host Ysgol Bro Morgannwg and on Saturday there are fixtures for the 2nd XV, U16s U15s, U14s and U13s against King’s School, Gloucester.
