Shamrock Reroofing, an Auckland-based company, has come on board as one of the club’s Key Sponsors for this season. The 2014 season kicks off on Saturday 5 April.
Richmond Chairman, Gus Fepuleai, says the future development of the sport lies in raising the specific skills and teamwork of young footballers in the community and securing the right sponsorship partner is crucial to delivering this.
“The partnership with Shamrock Reroofing provides critical support for our club programmes that will have a long-lasting effect on both senior and junior rugby league at Richmond Rovers,” says Mr Fepuleai.
Shamrock Reroofing owner, Brendan McLoughlin, is thrilled the company is able to support the inner Auckland city based club.
“It’s great to be able to support the community in a new way”, says Mr McLoughlin.
“Shamrock Reroofing staff work day and night with the motivation to get the job done as it should be done. The sponsorship is a wonderful opportunity to help keep young people in our community playing a sport they love and support Richmond’s goal of rising to the top of the Fox Memorial again. The history of Richmond Rovers is immense, and being of Irish origins myself, I particularly like that the membership of this club in its first few decades was predominantly Irish workers who dominated Rugby League in Auckland. No other club has produced as many Kiwis in New Zealand, and for 7 Richmond players to take the field for New Zealand in a test match is truly amazing. The success of Richmond Rovers over the last 100 years links very well with the success of Shamrock Reroofing Ltd”.
