ACT Construction (UK) Ltd has agreed a sponsorship deal with successful rugby union club, Glasgow Hawks RFC.
The financial support will assist the Glasgow Hawks in developing their junior teams and allow them to reach out to more youngsters in the community to encourage them to play rugby.
It will also mean the club can continue to operate their senior teams to a consistently high level, including training, development and competitions.
ACT is adding Glasgow Hawks to their portfolio of sporting sponsorships. They also support successful Scottish women’s footballer Lee Alexander, Scottish hockey players Kareena Cuthbert and Robyn Collins, champion Scottish swimmer Ross Murdoch, as well as UWS Sirens and Netball Scotland athletes Nicola McClerry and Emily Nicholl. The latter five athletes competed at the Gold Coast Commonwealth Games earlier this year.
Bob Coats, vice-president of Glasgow Hawks, said: “The sponsorship by ACT is invaluable for the club because it allows us to continue to operate and grow our teams.
“In particular, we have a strong community-based programme that means we can reach out to teenage boys in the Glasgow area and across the West of Scotland to join us and engage in the sport.
“We really are grateful to local businesses, such as ACT, for coming forward to give us this financial assistance, without which it would be difficult for us to operate as we do.”
Glasgow Hawks RFC has around 500 player members, both senior and junior, and is acclaimed in Glasgow as a stepping stone for players who hope to join the professional ranks.
The senior Glasgow Hawks team plays at Premier One level, which is the highest level for an amateur club in Scottish Rugby.
There are also five junior teams from under 13s to under 18s.
Ken Godsman, Managing Director of ACT Construction (UK) Ltd, said: “I have been a keen supporter of Scottish rugby for many years and I am delighted that ACT can offer some financial support to the Glasgow Hawks, especially for the development of young players.”
