Boost for Cantabrigian Rugby Club as sponsors get on board
Glen Remnant is excited about Cantabrigian Rugby Club’s future prospects thanks to range of new sponsorship agreements, including a shirt and signage deal with developer Countryside.
The support is a significant boost to the club’s campaign to upgrade their floodlights and training facilities, a welcome addition to funding already granted by the RFU.
Remnant, director of rugby at Cantabs, said: “The sponsorship is geared towards helping the whole club. It’s exciting.
“The lights and the facilities there are going to be amazing. We’re going to have the best training facilities around.”
The deal with Countryside is especially significant, and Remnant was full of praise for the company and the commitment they have made to help the club.
“They have come on board and put in a lovely sum of money,” he said.
“It’s a huge deal. We’ve got £50,000 of lights coming, and they’ve helped us out with that. They’ve bought into whole youth structure we’re trying to create at the club as well. They haven’t just come in to be a sponsor, they want to be part of the club and help us grow and develop our facilities.”
Cantabs have also agreed a deal with City View Digital in which buses in Cambridge will display their advertising and promotions.
“This is something else that’s going to help develop the club and raise our profile in the community,” said Remnant.
Prism Architectural has helped improve Cantabs’ medical resources by pledging money and equipment, thanks largely to the efforts of long-time supporter Anton Price.
The White Swan pub, Crofton Interiors and ongoing support from Cambridge-based software company Redgate are also providing valuable support.
“All this sponsorship helps us to grow,” continued Remnant.
“We want to provide our players with everything they need and provide a professional environment at the club without paying for players.”
Remnant has also taken great encouragement by recent results on the pitch.
On Saturday, Cantabs held London Two North East leaders Romford & Gidea Park to a 19-19 draw in match where his team almost snatched victory at the death.
They go into this weekend’s match at home to Saffron Walden with a great deal of confidence.
