In addition, Royal Wootton Bassett RFC were also asked to host the launch event for this season's tournament and May, of course, was delighted to attend.
"I played my junior rugby at Wootton Bassett and it's a club that I keep close to my heart. They did a lot for me and I'll always remember that.
"I try to come back when I can. I hand out the awards in the summer to the minis and juniors, which is always good fun. It's great to see that the club is going well."
The LV= Cup, previously known as the Anglo Welsh Cup, is a tournament that Gloucester have done well over the past few seasons. Finalists in 2009 and 2010, the Cherry and Whites lifted the trophy in 2011.
It's also been a platform for some of Gloucester's up and coming young talent to come in and stake a claim when some of the international players have been away representing their countries.
"It's been a competition where we've been able to play some of the younger guys and help them develop into the players they are now.
"People like Freddie (Burns) made the most of their opportunities a couple of years ago, and I got my first run out at full back in the LV= Cup last season against Sale at home.
"If it hadn't been for the LV= Cup, the coaches may not have taken the chance on seeing how I would go at full back. It gives them the opportunity to look at different players as well."
And with Gloucester opening their LV= Cup campaign away at the Ospreys on Friday evening, May is confident that more of Gloucester's prospects will be looking to shine.
"I'm sure there will be more this year. We've already seen contributions from the likes of Ian Clark, Gareth Evans and Dan Robson and they may well get starts over the next couple of weeks. I'm sure they'll make the most of it."
