Join the Stag party with poster self­ies

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

RUGBY fans are be­ing en­cour­aged to ‘spot a Stag’ with play­ers from a Bucks rugby club fea­tur­ing in posters across the UK as part of a na­tional cam­paign.

A na­tion­wide pro­mo­tional cam­paign, star­ring play­ers for Che­sham Stags, was launched last week. The club is help­ing the RFU to pro­mote grass roots rugby in the lead-up to the World Cup.

Posters have ap­peared on dig­i­tal dis­plays at main­line train sta­tions from Eus­ton to Liver­pool Lime Street, in shop­ping cen­tres from Blue­wa­ter to St David’s, in Cardiff, and many other lo­ca­tions.

Friends of the club have al­ready been sur­prised by a 40ft im­age of Kat Mer­chant at Brent Cross shop­ping cen­tre, been stared out by Andy Deane at New­cas­tle train sta­tion and un­set­tled by the sight of Phil Jar­rett loom­ing over Manch­ester Pic­cadilly.

About 35 of the club’s play­ers, in­clud­ing the youth teams, star in the posters.

Pres­i­dent of Che­sham Stags Cliff Davies said: “It is amaz­ing that not only have we been cho­sen to sup­ply the ball team for the World Cup matches, but now we are also the face of grass roots rugby for the World Cup. Peo­ple have been spot­ting the elec­tronic bill­boards from New­cas­tle to the M40 – the pub­lic­ity is cre­at­ing a real buzz. The ex­po­sure is great for the town of Che­sham and for the club.”

The club is call­ing on read­ers to help it spot its play­ers across the coun­try. Peo­ple are be­ing asked to take self­ies or group shots with the poster and share it with the club on Twit­ter @ Che­shamS­tags us­ing the hash­tags #find­rugby and #be­frameus.

If you email them to press@che­sham rug­by­, your photo will be added to the club’s gallery on Face­book and the Che­sham Stags web­site.
