Leicester Tigers claim the inaugural Slater Cup

Today, we’re proud to show you the Slater Cup, a silver presentation cup created for Gloucester Rugby Club.
The award is named after former Leicester Tigers and Gloucester Rugby player Ed Slater. Slater retired from the sport in 2022 following a diagnosis of Motor Neurone Disease.
The 4Ed campaign was launched to raise funds to support Ed and his family, and raise awareness of MND in the rugby community and beyond.
Both teams played against each other at the inaugural Slater Cup event alongside other fundraising activities.

Custom Presentation Cups

Presentation cups are impressive trophies with a classic design. The Slater Cup combines the time-honoured cup form with modern personalisation.

Each one is traditionally manufactured with an exquisite finish. Available in multiple sizes and styles, our presentation cups are handmade to order by highly skilled craftsmen and women, here in the UK.

This unique silver presentation cup has a stunning surface finish, achieved with hard-wearing nickel plating. The traditional cup is mounted on a rosewood finished base for a classic look. This base offers a rich, warm-toned wooden appearance, and is topped with a covered plinth ready for personalisation.

Personalising a presentation cup comes in many forms. In some instances, a series of engraving plates on the base are chosen for perpetual trophies. For this award, ‘The Slater Cup’ is clearly engraved around the base alongside the date marking the establishment of this new tradition. Modern manufacturing means these classic presentation cups aren’t limited to solely text. The body of the cup itself is engraved with the 4Ed logo, etched into the surface of the award.

The handles feature intricate detail embossed into the metal, for a tactile feel as it’s triumphantly raised by well-deserved winners at future tournaments.

The Slater Cup is a timeless piece, to be treasured for many years to come. Impressive and imposing, and the perfect trophy for winners’ of this new title; the Slater Cup is a classic presentation cup with modern personalisation.

Fundraising for the future

After a valiant effort, the Leicester Tigers won 28-13 against Gloucester’s Cherry & Whites, taking home this first historic win.
