BASINGSTOKE Rugby Football Club's (BRFC) Under 13s youth team are celebrating after securing sponsorships from five businesses ahead of a new season.

The sponsorships would ensure the team have a brand-new kit for the 2023-24 season.

This marks the first time that the Under 13s will have an official game kit, and they couldn't be prouder to represent their club and showcase the BRFC and sponsorship logos on the pitch.

Additionally, the team will now enjoy the convenience of playing on pitches closer to the clubhouse, making it easier for sponsors to attend and support home training sessions and games.

BRFC operates solely on a voluntary basis, with coaches, support teams, and administrative staff all contributing their time and effort to run the club.

The five businesses sponsoring the team are financial management company Fortem Financial Management, chartered accountants Lane Monnington Welton, telecoms provider Unlocked Data, fire protection services and products provider Basingstoke Fire Protection and property maintenance company Four Walls Services.

U13s assistant coach Paul Fearon said: “BRFC’s Under 13’s team are extremely grateful to have a generous and loyal group of local sponsors, and the boys are looking forward to representing BRFC in games around Hampshire all season, in their smart, new kit. The boys will also be presented with a BRFC club tie to wear at home and away games, when the teams both come together for a post-game lunch.

"We hope to do our sponsors proud as they have given their time, resource and funding in support of our club. In return, we will offer them local exposure, the opportunity to network and socialise at the club and the satisfaction of giving back, making a real difference to the local sporting community.

"The sponsorship opportunity will also enable us to begin planning a weekend tour for the boys next spring, since they missed out on previous opportunities due to the pandemic.”
