Former Vinehall pupil, Kieran Sassone, has been offered a full-time contract playing for the Harlequins Rugby Club from June 2018.

Kieran has been part of the Harlequins Junior academy for five years, having been referred for trials by Vinehall rugby coach Mr Butler at just 13 years old.  Initially playing No 8, the Harlequins quickly identified him as a future prop and he has participated in two U18 academy campaigns.

Having left Vinehall to study at Sevenoaks School, Kieran is now putting his university plans on hold to see where this exciting opportunity takes him.

Harlequins say “A former Under 18 Academy champion, Sassone has shown he has the potential to become a first team prop, and will only benefit from tutelage of Graham Rowntree and Adam Jones”.
