Pontypool RFC is pleased to announce that the Free Press has endorsed the club by launching the Target 1,000 campaign.
The Target 1,000 campaign has been created with the aim of raising the attendance of 2013/2014 Pontypool RFC home fixtures at Pontypool Park to 1,000 fans and beyond - not only to further develop Pontypool RFC, but to also maintain and enhance the positive impact that this benchmark can have on local businesses and organisations situated in the town of Pontypool as a whole.
The Managing Editor of the Free Press Nicole Garnon said, "The success of Pontypool RFC is not just important for the game of rugby, but for Pontypool itself. We are delighted to give our support to the new management who are working so hard to build a strong financial base so the club can go from strength to strength. We firmly believe this will go hand in hand with success on the pitch, and quite simply we want as many people in Pontypool as possible to be part of that success."
Ben Jeffreys, Pontypool RFC Corporate Director said, “Everybody at the club is determined to ensure that Pontypool RFC retains its place as one of the premier brands in world rugby, but for the club to achieve success in isolation would not be in fitting with the community spirit the club was founded upon. We would like any success we can achieve at the club to act as the catalyst that sees the town of Pontypool thrive once again. To many, the club is the bedrock that brings people together and werecognise the club’s responsibility to contribute to the further development of Pontypool.”
“We are incredibly thankful for all of the fans who have stuck by the club during both the difficult and the more recent positive times,” Said Mike Hook, Head Coach for Pontypool RFC. “Without their support over the past twelve months, Pontypool RFC would not be here. We want to reward the fans and recognise that we must now perform on the field so that we can reach this new target. Everybody is driven to take the town of Pontypool forward and we are optimistic about the future.”
In light of this new campaign, Pontypool RFC would like your feedback on what you would like to see happen at the club and what the club can do to further integrate with the Pontypool community, via the club’s social media channels -www.facebook.com/PontypoolRFC, www.twitter.com/PontypoolRFC andwww.pontypoolrugby.org.uk (unofficial fan forum).
Pontypool RFC would like to take this opportunity to express its sincerest of thanks to the Free Press for their support.
