Specialist logistics company Bishopsgate were out in force for the Swindon U14’s rugby match v their local rivals. Proudly wearing their new Bishopsgate kit for the first time, they secured local bragging rights by winning in a competitively fought game watched by their biggest crowd of the season
Tim Bloch, Bishopsgate’s managing director said, “We moved into the area approximately 5 years ago and we now see ourselves very much as a local company. I have always been a great fan of grass roots rugby and I wanted to put something back into the local community. When Swindon Rugby Club asked me support their U14’s, it just felt like the perfect fit!”
Vince Badminton, Swindon Rugby’s vice chairman said, “We have a great set up at Swindon Rugby club and Bishopsgate’s generous support is invaluable in helping the junior section grow. We may not be the best team in the league but we will certainly qualify now for ‘best dressed’”, he quipped.
This was echoed by the team who just couldn’t wait to get their new shirts well and truly mucky. As anyone who has played rugby knows that is the most fun you can have with a brand new shirt!
