Premier Training staff are up for the cup


Premier Training staff got their hands on yet another prize when Sheffield Eagles visited their offices with the 1895 Cup.

The rugby league side made history in August, becoming the first winners of the AB Sundecks 1895 Cup after a 36-18 triumph over Widnes. And Premier Training were among the sponsors featured on the Eagles’ warm-up shirts at Wembley.

The Premier offices are no stranger to awards and trophies, with the company claiming the Large Training Provider of the Year and Lifetime Achievement Award at the 2019 AAT Training Provider Awards. It was also named Distance Learning Provider of the Year in 2016 and 2017 – becoming the only organisation to win this award twice.

Sheffield Eagles visit Premier Training

‘Thanks for your support’

Eagles coach Mark Aston was keen to thank all at Premier Training for their support following a successful season. He said: “We wanted to come in and thank all the staff for their support. We had a big occasion this year at Wembley and they kindly agreed to sponsor our players’ warm-up tops for that game.

“We are indebted to companies who sponsor us, it helps the club so much. To have the opportunity to visit with the cup and show our gratitude is something we really enjoy doing. We have a fantastic relationship with Premier Training and it was great to see their staff getting pictures with the 1895 Cup.

“We’ve given them a signed top to display in their offices and we’d love to see them at our games next season. We really do appreciate the support they provide.”

Special day at Wembley

Reflecting on Sheffield’s triumph, Mark added: “We’re so proud of the team that brought silverware back to Sheffield. It was a special day at Wembley. Sport is all about creating memories and our players and fans certainly did that. There was so much preparation that went into it. What we achieved – as players and backroom staff – was the icing on the cake.”

Rose Crockett, Premier Training’s Operations Director, commented: “Our congratulations go to Sheffield Eagles on a fantastic achievement. It was a real privilege to have our pictures with the 1895 Cup and we look forward to supporting the club again next season!”
