A Leamington-based property developer has renewed its sponsorship of Old Leamingtonians Rugby Club who have recruited two Wasps players to their coaching staff in their bid for promotion this season.
The club’s senior teams’ shirts will again display AC Lloyd’s name following a successful partnership last season as the club came close to promotion to the Midlands 2 West (South) division.
Essential match day and training equipment will be provided to all teams, including three senior men’s teams, colts rugby, ladies’ and girls’ rugby, mini and junior age groups, and mixed-ability rugby, that play on its 27-acre site at The Crofts as a result of the support from AC Lloyd and other sponsors.
Phil Eales, Chairman of Old Leamingtonians Rugby Club, said: “The sponsorship by AC Lloyd for a second year running is extremely welcome as we look to mount another promotion challenge.
“Their sponsorship allows us to provide our teams with the highest quality equipment and facilities available anywhere in the country at this level.
“Adam Canning, a former Coventry RFC squad member, has stepped up to take on the head coach responsibilities for this season, and we also welcome as coaches Wasps front row players Ben Harris and Tom Cruse who will add hugely to our forward players’ fitness and skills as they commence their coaching careers.
“We are looking this year to have that extra level of fitness and concentration that we were lacking last season in order to take the step up, and the support from our sponsors will help us achieve that.”
AC Lloyd’s Tachbrook Park headquarters is based less than five miles away from Old Leamingtonians’ Bericote Road home ground.
Peter Beddoes, chairman of AC Lloyd, said: “We are extremely pleased to be able to continue this partnership with a fantastic club that is so important to the Leamington community.
“Hopefully our relationship will continue to grow over the coming season and we wish them the best of luck in the new campaign, going one step further in their quest for promotion.”
