SEEVIC Storm’s Rugby Academy are gunning for a trio of major titles.

The Thundersley based youngsters take part in the National Sevens Championships in Nottingham this weekend before facing Coopers’ Company and Coborn School in the Essex Cup final.

After that comes the AoC National Premier League final against Coleg y Cymoedd.

And Seevic’s director of rugby Danny Cleare hopes to be able to finish the season on a high.

“We’re looking forward to the challenges that lie in wait,” said Cleare.

“The boys have done really well and worked really hard to get this far in all three of the competitions but now we want to be able to do well in the finals as well.

“With that in mind, the boys continued to train throughout the Easter holidays to try and ensure that we keep up the standard of rugby we have been demonstrating this season.”

Seevic’s first pursuit of glory will come in the sevens format at Nottingham University this weekend.

The talented group of teenagers will compete alongside nine other regional champions across Great Britain in the tournament, where they were able to finish as runners up last season.

The Essex Cup final - which will be played at Barking and Dagenham Rugby Club - will take place on Wednesday May 3 and a week later Seevic take part in the National Play-Off final in Birmingham The showdown will be Seevic’s third national final in the last four years.

And Cleare - who is also first team coach at Southend Saxons - remains rightfully proud of their record.

“It’s a great achievement to have got to these finals and it’s a record we’re proud of too,” said Cleare.

“But we’re not just happy to get to finals - we want to win them and that’s the challenge in front of the boys now.

“We will be playing against some very strong sides, like you would expect at this late stage of these competitions, but everyone is looking forward to the matches.”

Seevic will have George Griffiths and Norbertas Radzevicius - who have shone for Southend in recent weeks - in their squad.

And winger Radzevicius cannot wait to feature in the finals.

“We’ve worked hard all season to get the chance to play in these finals and now we want to make sure we play well in them,” said Radzevicius, who has scored in his last five games for Southend.

“We’re a close group and these are the last few matches we will have together so we want to make them good ones.

“It’s been another good season for us but there is still a lot to play for and we want to show we can do well against the very best.

“That’s definitely what we’re aiming to do.”
