Join the Stag party with poster selfies
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 rugbyclub.com, your photo will be added to the club’s gallery on Facebook and the Chesham Stags website.
