Midland Expressway are proud to sponsor Lichfield Rugby Union Club
The Colts are an integral part of the Club as they link lads coming through the ranks of the mini / junior sections and the step up to the men's 1st team. The Colts are presently top of this season's league with a 100% record to date, with this Saturday's game seeing them win 37-7 against Sutton Coldfield.
The sponsorship forms part of a wider initiative to support local sport and is particularly aimed at community amateur sports clubs such as Lichfield Rugby Union Football club.
Chairman Dave Bassett said "The club and particularly the Colts team were delighted to hear that as a result of discussions with Mr Peter Cleaver (Head of Tolling at MEL) a new set of shirts carrying the M6 Toll logo and sponsored by Midland Expressway Ltd will be worn during the 2009/10 season".
Tom Fanning, CEO of MEL added: "we are very pleased to sponsor the Colts team and wish them every success for the future. The Club is close to the heart of our own Peter Cleaver, who himself used to play for the Club, before moving on to coach and presently sits on the committee. MEL are looking at similar opportunities to support the youth of Staffordshire and this is a golden opportunity to make a difference, particularly when a member of our staff is involved."
If you have a child between the age of 6 - 17 who is interested in playing rugby, new players are always welcome at Lichfield Rugby Club so why not go along for a few sessions and see if they enjoy training and playing. For more information, please visit the Club website at www.lichfieldrugby.co.uk
