We are proud to have signed a new one-year deal to sponsor the Kirkham Grammar School (KGS) rugby 1st XV team, featuring on both the home and away kits throughout the 2022/23 season.
Tom Fox, from Porsche Centre Preston said: “Kirkham Grammar School is renowned for rugby excellence. We already support Preston Grasshoppers RUFC and Fylde RUFC locally, so KGS is another perfect fit to maintain the dealership's relationship with the local rugby community. Our sponsorship comes after a particularly successful period for the 1st XV and we are looking forward to seeing how the season develops.”
In March, KGS 1st XV experienced an unforgettable day at Twickenham in the Under 18's National Schools Cup final; only to be edged out 15-10 by Trinity School from Croydon. Also this year, KGS 1st XV won the Birkenhead School Sevens and Sedbergh School National Tens.
Kirkham Grammar School's Director of Rugby, Mr Aled Trenhaile, said: “We are proud to have Porsche Centre Preston as our new 1st XV sponsor. With the support of our sponsors, we hope we can build and replicate our recent success as our players develop. In Porsche Centre Preston, we are lucky to have a local business partner that is as passionate about rugby as we are.”
Last year, we were revealed as the new sponsor of a Fylde Rugby Community Foundation initiative to encourage more young people to participate in sport.
This three-year deal will help up to 75 young players enjoy the benefits of rugby club membership. Each young beneficiary will receive help with practical measures such as transport and kit. They will also enjoy training support focused on a smooth introduction to playing rugby as part of a club.
