Wattstown RFC and Pontyclun FC will receive sponsorship from SIG Roofing’s Cardiff Branch.

Alex Crowther, SIG Roofing’s Cardiff Branch Manager, enjoys playing rugby for nearby Wattstown RFC and helped to co-ordinate the sponsorship, which will contribute to buying kits and leisure wear for the players.

Crowther said: “I’m delighted that SIG Roofing have been generous enough to sponsor my rugby club, the funds will go directly into players’ funds, meaning that the sponsorship will have a tangible impact on the team.”

Wattstown RFC plays in the WRU National League 3B, East Central Division, and is going into the season aiming for promotion.

The year long sponsorship ensures a pitch-side advertising board at their home ground in addition to a weekly mention in the match programme.

SIG Roofing has also sponsored local football team Pontyclun FC, which plays in Division 2 of the Welsh League. James Gronow, a Yardman at SIG Roofing Cardiff, dedicates some of his leisure time playing for the newly sponsored team.

As with Wattstown RFC, Pontyclun FC will also receive a monetary contribution to their players’ funds, supporting the club with equipment to ensure it is playing at its best.
