Quins Girls Under 15s go International with a Welsh Flavour.
The Quins Girls Under 15s team are delighted to announce a brand new International Sponsorship Deal. A chance conversation on the Social Media platform Twitter will see the girls kitted out in brand new shirts for the 2019/2020 season.
Through negotiations the team can reveal that a consortium of Welsh Expats based in New York (www.newyorkwelsh.com ) have agreed to be the shirt sponsors for the coming two seasons. The focus of the sponsorship comes from Ty Francis MBE who has set up a platform (www.sponsorourclub.org ) that aims to link regional youth sports teams in Wales with Welsh individuals the world over from New York to Hong Kong. The initial focus is on female football, rugby and mixed ability teams.
Through his network of contacts Ty has facilitated the sponsorship through donations from John Lyle, Bryn Roberts-Harry, Ieuan Roberts-Harry and Ty and his Wife Alanya, which will see the girls Under 15s kitted out for the coming season.
The club and particularly the mini and junior section is extremely grateful for this support specifically in the area of girls rugby that has seen a massive increase in participation over recent months across Wales. It is hoped that this new sponsorship deal will result in more players taking up the game who will then move through the ranks to the Quins Under 18s teams and then to senior rugby with the Scarlets and ultimately within the Welsh National set up.
Once the shirts are delivered there will be a further photo opportunity of the shirts being handed over to the team by John and the sponsors.
