TR renews sponsorship of Uckfield Rugby Club
TR Fastenings (TR) has renewed its sponsorship of Uckfield Rugby Football Club (URFC) , which is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year. The sponsorship deal means that the TR logo will appear on pitchside signage at the club’s Hempstead Fields grounds, less than a mile away from TR’s Uckfield headquarters.
URFC played its first match in 1966 as Uckfield Youth Club, seven years before TR’s own humble beginnings. The club grew in strength and popularity and moved to Hempstead Fields 25 years ago in 1992. Today, URFC is fully accredited by the Rugby Football Union (RFU) and is an affiliated partner of English Premiership team Harlequins RFC. The club’s two senior men’s teams play in Sussex 1, an English level 9 league and in the level 10 Sussex Canterbury Jack Division 2. The club also regularly fields youth, junior, ladies and veteran teams.
Geoff Budd, TR Fastenings’ European Managing Director, commented: “Supporting the local community has always been an important part of TR’s values. While we’ve had a presence in Uckfield for 44 years, URFC has been around for even longer and we wish them a very happy 50th birthday! We’re delighted to be renewing our relationship with the club and look forward to cheering the teams on this season.”
