Lancashire Youth/Junior Cup Finals

Post by Sam Armstrong on Mon Jan 26, 2009 3:49 pm

The NW Counties 8-12’s, 13-15’s & 16-18’s Leagues in conjunction with the RFL, are delighted to announce that the Lancashire Youth and Junior Cup Finals will, this season, be sponsored by, Rossendale based, Sponsorbank.

Sponsorbank – a diverse company, very familiar to us all through previous involvement with the NW Counties leagues, supply kit and equipment, as well as offer clubs help with funding and development – have backed the Lancashire Cup Finals with a £7000 deal, much to the delight of the North West Counties Leagues.

“We’re delighted with the sponsorship package,” said Mick Doyle, NWC 12-8s ARL Chairman.

“It’s a fantastic opportunity for the North West to showcase the standard of Rugby League across the youth and junior age groups and I’m sure the day will be a great success.”

The finals have also received a further boost with the news that the Stobart Stadium, Widnes will play host to the big day.

“The NW Counties 13-15's ARL are absolutely thrilled with the announcement that the Stobart Stadium is to be the venue for this year's Lancashire Cup Finals. We’d like to thank Sponsorbank for their support and also Halton Borough Council for their help in staging this major event,” said NWC 13-15 Secretary Sam Armstrong, thoughts which were echoed by NWC 16-18’s League counterpart Hilary Steel.

“The excellent facilities of the Stobart Stadium will be fitting venue for the finals. For many players this will be their “Wembley” and the whole ethos of playing at a professional ground will give them a feeling of achievement.”

Sponsorbank too are also pleased to be playing an important part in the youth and junior game.

‘We are delighted to show our support by sponsoring the Lancashire Youth and Junior Cup Finals this year.

“We have a valuable working relationship with a number of Rugby League clubs providing a wide range of products and services. This event is an excellent platform to show what a great standard of Rugby is being played at Youth and Junior level; we are looking forward to the event very much indeed,” said Allistair Carmichael, Sponsorbank’s Managing Director.

Nice one , Sam, Margaret, Hilary and Mick!

Last year's Lancashire Cup (BARLA "organised", as opposed to NWC organised) was held in, and therefore put money into, a rugby union club, where the BARLA secretary, after organising the parking of the team coaches, disappeared and left the organisation of the pitches, matches and trophies to your colleague, Jackie Clowes.

Jackie was only there as a spectator, but saw the need and got stuck in. Had it been left to the BARLA secretary, the whole day could have been a farce.

I am sure the event in Widnes will be a success, based on your previous exploits.
