Laceys Solicitors are  pleased to announce we are the Bournemouth Rugby First XV Shirt Sponsor for the 2016/2017 season.

Mark Timberlake, Senior Partner at Laceys Solicitors said “Laceys are privileged to be at the forefront of ensuring that the growth  of Bournemouth Rugby continues through engagement with the local business community. We wholeheartedly support the Club’s growth strategy and see this as the start of a great partnership.  We hope the 2016 -17 season is a great success!”

Bournemouth Rugby is delighted to have Laceys Solicitors onboard as the  chosen sponsor to the First XV team shirt.

James Croker, Chief Executive Officer at Bournemouth Rugby, said: “There is a great deal of pride attached to wearing a First XV team shirt for any club, but what we have at Bournemouth is also based on a real community, which all our sponsors are proud to be associated with.

“We rely on an army of volunteers, our members and the generosity of our sponsors to ensure that we not only play the best rugby at First XV level, but continue the Club’s long traditions of developing our young players through well subscribed Academy & Minis and Youth sections, through to delivering new initiatives.  These include our highly successful Schools Program and the introduction of Disability Rugby, supported through a new Apprenticeship Scheme; grass roots support for women’s rugby through with female coaching; offering Touch Rugby as an alternative for fitness and wellbeing; and working in partnership with Dorset Police, Social Services and Jobshop UK to help young disadvantaged people.  When the First XV put on their shirts, they are not just representing the Club from a rugby perspective, they are representing everyone and everything we do, on and off the pitch.”
