Joseph Ash Galvanizing has sponsored the Leek Rugby Under 12s team strip. This is the second year that Joseph Ash Galvanizing has invested in the team, and plans to do so again next year.

The Leek Rugby Under 12s are based in the Staffordshire Moorlands in a village named Cheddleton. They play extensively throughout Staffordshire and have just started to play teams from Leicestershire and Cheshire.

Joseph Ash Galvanizing decided to sponsor the rugby team as the head coach, Ian Byrne, is the Managing Director of L M Bateman & Co Ltd, a valued customer of Joseph Ash Galvanizing’s Telford plant.

Over the years the Leek Rugby Under 12s team has been very successful:

Under 7:

Matlock Festival Champions

Under 8:

Stoke Festival Champions

Staffordshire County Champions

Lost no games throughout the season

Under 9:

Staffordshire County Champions

Under 10:

Won the Prima Tigers Cup qualifying tournament and represented Leek RUFC with three games at Welford Road (home of Leicester Tigers)

Staffordshire County Champions

Under 12:

Won all their games at Staffordshire County Championships, and finished with the best record.

The team has also welcomed seven girls into the fold, one of which has set up a new girls’ team. This is one of very few girls’ under 12s teams in the country and is an exciting development for the club.

Joseph Ash Galvanizing looks forward to supporting the hard work and team ethic of the Leek Rugby Under 12s in the coming future.
