Northampton Saints Academy coach Jon Curry will be working with the school’s under 14 and 15 starlets on a weekly basis throughout the Michaelmas term.

Before joining Northampton Saints, Jon was head of Leicester Tiger’s player development centre where he nurtured England duo Ben and Tom Youngs.

Since joining the Saints Academy, Jon has regularly produced players for England, most notably Courtney Lawes, but has also helped to shape players such as Ben Nutley, Mike Haywood and Alex Day, who have all enjoyed represented England.

Alex Laybourne, head of rugby, said: “It is fantastic to have Jon working with us on a regular basis. He is able to share a wealth of experience with the pupils and an insight into how they can progress into the Developing Player Programme (DPD), Elite Player Development Group (EPDG) and Academy.
