Fylde RU chairman Andy Hiles said:
“We are delighted to continue this partnership with Cuadrilla and Centrica Energy supporting Fylde Rugby Club. Success for Fylde Rugby Club, and indeed the majority of rugby clubs, is not measured purely by results on the pitch. Success also needs to be measured by commercial backing. We have been working with Cuadrilla and Centrica Energy for a number of years now and this announcement cements that relationship for the benefit of both parties. As a National One League Rugby Club sponsorship is vital to the on-going development of Fylde and our status as one of the leading clubs in the North West of England.”
Cuadrilla chief executive Francis Egan said:
“Fylde Rugby club is an important part of the local community and we are pleased to continue our sponsorship for another year. We look forward to continue to follow the team’s progress over the coming season and wish the club all the best.”
Centrica Energy’s head of exploration Mark Lappin said:
“We’re delighted to once again be supporting the club as sponsors and would like to wish all the players the best of luck for the coming season.”
