Stancold Continues Support for Avonmouth Old Boys RFC

The business is pleased to announce its continued sponsorship of local rugby club, Avonmouth Old Boys RFC, for the upcoming season.

Where grassroots sport has been heavily affected by the COVID pandemic, support from local businesses through sponsorship is now more important than ever. The recovery of clubs and organisations in the local community will allow them to continue to provide sporting opportunities for all age groups and at all competition levels.

Now in its 125th year of existence, Avonmouth Old Boys RFC have a senior section of over 100 members and junior numbers in the region of 250 on a weekly basis, with accompanying facilities that include a large clubroom, bar, changing rooms and 3 floodlit pitches.

Avonmouth Old Boys’ Sponsorship Officer, Ted Britton, has thanked the business for its continued support:

“We are a big club that have had a huge amount of success, playing with eight Bristol Combination cup wins and various promotions over the last 15 years or so.

This of course costs the club a lot of money, which we raise in various ways, including sponsorship for purchasing kit, leisure wear and advertising. We are very fortunate to have a group of very loyal companies that support us, one of which is Stancold.”

Stancold’s Marketing Manager, Stacy Horseman, has commented:

“As a Bristol business of over 75 years, based in Avonmouth for at least 20, the opportunities we have to support the local community are valuable to us.

Stancold’s pitchside advertising has been in place since 2018, not only to support our colleagues that have played with the club but to support an initiative that plays a key role in the local area.”
