The partnership see’s Hall-Fast become the main sponsor of the clubs Junior Rugby League programme, which has been developed to introduce Juniors aged 9-16 into the sport, which is traditionally played in Yorkshire and the North West of England.
On the partnership, Malcolm Hall MBE, Owner and Managing Director of Hall-Fast said “We’re moving into our 8th year of involvement with our North Nottinghamshire Community Partnership with Nottingham Rugby which has introduced thousands of juniors from the age of 2 years old to rugby union, and we’re proud to add another community club to the list of clubs that we’re supporting tin and around Mansfield and further afield.
We’re very keen to be involved with the growth of Junior Rugby League, in what is the first programme of its kind to have taken place in Mansfield. As a proud Yorkshireman, Rugby League is a sport I grew up with and I’m keen to see the sport develop outside the heartlands. This is just the start of our partnership with Sherwood, and we’re looking forward to a continued partnership in the coming years”.
Hall-Fast are no strangers to the community rugby scene, having been involved with Mansfield Rugby Club, and currently heavily involved in Nottingham Paviors, with a clear focus on developing Junior rugby from mini’s, right through to the open age set up.
