The association between Gates and Harlow Rugby Club has been ongoing for some years now and we are delighted that the premier sponsorship will continue throughout the new season, now underway again following a frustrating spell where fixtures could not be fulfilled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The sponsorship includes providing playing strips and warm-up kit for the senior teams.
Simon Lewis, General Manager at Gates of Harlow, recently attended the famous local derby when the RedMen took on local rivals, Epping Upper Clapton. He is pictured alongside, James Dickinson, Group Sales Director) when they met the Harlow Rugby Club 1st XV and Paul Tucker (Club Chairman) pre-match.
The team are proudly adorning their new kits, complete with Gates logos on the reverse of the kit and on the shorts!
As you'd expect with a local derby, the match was very well attended and the crowd generated a fantastic atmosphere. The support of the home crowd spurred the Harlow's team on to an emphatic 36-26 win!
Following their 100% start to the season, Gates look forward to supporting Harlow Rugby Club throughout what looks set to be a very promising season for the Essex based club.
Furthermore, Club Captain Eoin Morrissey was awarded "Man of the Match" and won an exclusive Mustang Driving Experience, courtesy of Gates. Eoin is pictured opposite with Simon Lewis at Gates of Harlow when he visited the FordStore on Edinburgh Way to collect the Ford Mustang!
