JAYJAYS - JERSEY FOR ALL - Black- RGB.png

Jersey For All / SponsorOurClub connects Welsh diaspora and philanthropic individuals with regional female football and rugby teams accredited by the FAW and WRU, and mixed ability teams across Wales in need of financial support. 

 

Founded by Welsh-American businessman Ty Francis MBE and American public relations executive Alayna Francis in 2018, the initiative finds sponsorship and funding for teams in Wales from around the world via New York Welsh, the worlds largest active Welsh diaspora network. 

 

The initiative, which by the summer of 2022, has found funding for over 500 players, would not have been possible without the generosity of our Welsh diaspora including Marc Walby, Dominic Barrett, Matthew Rhys, Spencer John, Richard Swain, Gwilym, Bryn & Ieuan Roberts-Harry and John Lyle, Glenn Treacher and The Liberty NYC bar, alongside the New York Welsh community. We have amazing support from our grassroots volunteers including, Mike Sage and our friends at Dragons Rugby, Rachel Grieve, Chairwoman at Tenby Swifts RFC's South Pembs Sharks, Neil Evans at Carmarthen Quins, Lukas Gamble, Chairman of Kilgetty AFC and so many others.

 

Jersey For All was an idea by Ty Francis, who had co-founded New York Welsh, as a way to give back to his home of Wales, and was Inspired by the work already in motion for inclusion rugby by former Welsh and Lions International, Ryan Jones MBE. It continues to elevate grassroots sport in Wales, and hopes to grow to include individual young women and people with disabilities, who would otherwise fail to find funding.  

Our current teams are as follows:

South Pembrokeshire Sharks Girls Hub (U15, 13, 11, 9s)

Cleddau Wild Cats Girls Hub (U15, 13, 11, 9s)

Carmarthen Quins Juniors Girls U15's
