A children’s rugby team is celebrating after landing two new sponsors.

Newcastle-based recruitment company Recruitment Robin Ltd and Peak Pursuits, of Congleton, have agreed to sponsor the Trentham RUFC Under 8’s.

Now the 12-strong team is sporting new kits ready for the Staffordshire Under 8’s Festival, which the club is hosting on April 14 at its New Inn Lane ground.

Under 8’s rugby coach Carl Baker said: “We are grateful to our sponsors Recruitment Robin Ltd and Peak Pursuits. We had a fairly old and mixed-up set of shirts and we now have a lovely new kit.”

Recruitment Robin managing director Selina Rudzik said: “We are extremely proud to sponsor the Trentham under 8’s. My seven-year-old son Matty plays for the team and sports the number 7 shirt.”

Peak Pursuits boss Paul Ball added: “We are passionate about helping children achieve their peak potential. Outdoor activities have been proven to boost self-esteem in children, which is crucial to their mental health and development into independent adult life. When young people achieve in stimulating and challenging outdoor activities, they will then achieve academically.”
