Nottingham forward Ollie Chessum will join Leicester Tigers ahead of the 2020/21 season.

Chessum was a member of the England Under-20s training squad this season and took part in the Tigers Academy programme in 2019, as well previously representing England Counties.

The 19-year-old joined Nottingham in the summer of 2019 and went on to make ten appearances scoring one try in his debut season at The Bay.

Head Coach Neil Fowkes said: “I am really pleased that Ollie has been given an opportunity to go back into a Premiership environment following a successful season with us and we wish him all the best with Leicester Tigers.

“Through our relationships with the Premiership clubs in our region we can work closely to identify talent that needs further nurturing whilst helping us be successful on the field. Ollie is a fine example of this working.

“This has been at the core of Nottingham Rugby for many years. Everyone at the club wishes Ollie the best of luck with the move, I am sure that someone with his attitude will be a success.”
