PORTH­CAWL RFC are de­lighted to have Lidl on board as their leisure wear spon­sor this sea­son.

The col­lab­o­ra­tion will mean that the Lidl logo will take pride of place on the Se­nior squad’s pre­match hood­ies, train­ing T-Shirts, leisure shorts, vests and track suits.

Chair­man Cliff Hop­kins said: “After gain­ing pro­mo­tion last sea­son to Di­vi­sion 3 West Cen­tral A, as a club we were keen to in­vest fur­ther in our play­ers.

“It’s vi­tal for grass roots clubs to have the sup­port and in­vest­ment from lo­cal busi­nesses to be able to do this. We were thrilled to hear such a large and ex­cit­ing or­gan­i­sa­tion wanted to in­vest in us. It is hugely re­ward­ing to work in part­ner­ship with a com­pany which also has a mind for com­mu­nity in­volve­ment.”

Neil Be­van, Re­gional Dis­tri­bu­tion Man­ager for Lidl said: “We are de­lighted to be able to sup­port Porth­cawl RFC in this way.

“This is a great op­por­tu­nity for us to demon­strate our com­pany’s com­mit­ment to eco­nomic devel­op­ment and sup­port­ing the lo­cal com­mu­nity. It’s clear to see they are an am­bi­tious club hav­ing gained pro­mo­tion last sea­son. Our in­volve­ment with Porth­cawl RFC helps us to un­der­stand the needs of the com­mu­nity and strength­ens our links with them.”

Team man­ager Ian Mc­Don­ald said: “There is a real sense of some­thing spe­cial hap­pen­ing at South Road. There’s a good at­mos­phere around the club. Every­one’s en­joy­ing them­selves and we’ve got some depth in our play­ing squad. At­tract­ing new spon­sors such as Lidl is vi­tal for the long-term devel­op­ment of our club and sport­ing com­mu­nity.”

Porth­cawl RFC con­tinue to do well in the league. They are also through to the last eight of the Glam­or­gan County Sil­ver Ball com­pe­ti­tion as well as get­ting through to the quar­ter-fi­nal of the WRU Na­tional Bowl fol­low­ing their 29-0 win over New­port Sara­cens RFC. Porth­cawl will now face Peny­graig RFC in the quar­ter-fi­nal which will be played on Satur­day, March 10.
