A New Partnership with Gunnersbury School Rugby Team

We are now proud to be supporting Gunnersbury School’s rugby team starting in the 19/20 season. This adds to our growing list of local sports sponsorships, giving us a great platform to further support our local community.

Thanks to the Director of Rugby over at the Grasshoppers Rugby Club, Juan Murray, we were able to secure the sponsorship of both the U13’s and U16’s over at Gunnersbury School.

Grass Hoppers and Gunnersbury are already tightly connected, with players playing for both the club and school. Naturally this offered a great chance to create some branding synergy in our local area whilst supporting our next generation of sports stars.

Ollie Burke, Head of P.E. at Gunnersbury School, said “Gunnersbury students were delighted to receive their shirts at the beginning of this rugby season and were given a boost from the rugby Jersey which GWR KIA’s sponsorship donation bought for our students.”

GWR Kia’s General Sales Manager, John Rayment, is ex Gunnersbury School Alumni and was extremely pleased to have the chance to support his old school.

So far this season, both teams are off to a flying start. Ollie Burke, explained “Our U13 side won 4 out their 5 fixtures so far and look forward to a positive return of results at the forthcoming Middlesex festival towards the end of November. Our U16 team is unbeaten, photographed before their victory over Teddington School last Wednesday with a score of 25-12. Our boys played excellently well in a hard-fought match whilst defending their Middlesex Cup title.”

We wish both teams a great season ahead and look forward to hearing of your success.
