We are delighted to announce our support of Caldicot RFC Under 12’s by sponsoring their team kit over the next season.
Caldicot RFC Under 12’s is a Monmouthshire based junior rugby team whose sole focus is the development of young players. They have twice won the ‘Tigers Challenge’ tournament shield at the Butlins Minehead resort while they were also runners up in the main cup competition. Hoping to continue their success, they aim to compete at the Hilversum Tournament in Holland at the end of this season.
Chris Couchman, Team Coach, says “Caldicot RFC simply want to coach the players the correct technique, to ensure safety and skill, so they can enjoy the best team sport in the world, one that is genuinely for all shapes and sizes. The offer of sponsorship comes at the perfect time for us, enabling us to afford a new playing kit for the 2018-19 season.’
The 24-man team, of mixed gender and ability, begin playing at Junior level this season. The move from “Mini rugby” (12-a-side) to Junior (15-a-side) has seen a significant rise in costs, especially as many of the players now require adult-sized kit.
Mark Catton, CEO of Henry Howard Finance, says, ‘It is important to us at Henry Howard Finance that we support the communities around us and are delighted to encourage young people to engage in local sporting activities. We are proud to show our support to this excellent team and wish them all the best for the forthcoming season’.
Caldicot RFC Under 12’s are actively recruiting new players to build on their recent success. Those interested can contact Chris Couchman on 07568 085053.
