One of the Directors of AcumenEdge Ltd is Jamie McKimm who played rugby from the age of 8 to 39 for a variety of schools and clubs- Melville College (Stewarts / Melville), Churchers College, Petersfield, Hampshire Colts, Tavistock, HMS Birmingham, HMS Active, HMS Penelope, Royal Navy (Falklands Tournament), Faslane, Helensburgh, Hyndland FP and Beaconsfield.

Sadly age caught up with him and he no longer plays, however he’s still actively involved in the sport.For the last 21 years he has been a Buckinghamshire County Referee, and was his son’s age group coach at Beaconsfield Rugby Club (currently with 660 Mini and Youth Players) for 10 years.

Jamie enjoys dedicating his spare time and resources to junior rugby, and has now set up the International Mini & Youth Rugby Series; an innovative and different tournament  bringing together Mini & Youth Rugby players from around the UK and hopefully the world to compete in a sport he has enjoyed for many years. These tournaments are for the benefit of players, coaches and the local area where the tournament is held.
