New Sponsorship for Gateshead RFU Under 17s

As part of our ongoing commitent to social and environmental causes, Tyne & Wear Oils announces a new sponsorship deal.

Being part of any team brings life-long memories and associations for anyone, but being part of a Rugby Union team is in a league of its own.

This is something our own Mike Perriam fully appreciates being an alumnus of Gateshead Rugby Union club. Having "played" rugby for many happy (but at times painful) years, Mike has fond memories of those days and Gateshead Ruby Club.

Being away from the game can be a big loss when it has dominated your life for so long, so when Mike bumped into a couple of old team mates last Christmas it was a welcome blast from the past.

Right from the launch of Tyne and Wear Oils we have been keen to make a contribution to local social life - for example with our ongoing sponsorship of Bowes Railway. So when Mike's old team mates mentioned they were now running the under 17s youth team and were looking for sponsorship - it just seemed a perfect fit.

Tyne & Wear Oils agreed to sponsor the lads for the 2017-18 season as the beginning of an association we hope will stand the same test of time that Mike's rugby friendships have.

The under 17s look great in their new shirts and started the new season in style with a resounding win of 65-10.

Mike said of the new sponsorship: "It is great to be involved with Rugby Union again and provide this much needed support for these potential stars of the future. We wish the team all the best for the coming season and hope this sponsorship will oil the way to success."
