Pontypool RFC is pleased to announce that Medinet has extended its status as the club’s primary commercial partner for the 2015/2016 SSE SWALEC Championship campaign.
The Newport-based medical services provider has occupied prime position on the iconic red, white and black hooped Pooler jersey since the 2009/2010 Principality Premiership campaign, and will enter its seventh consecutive season supporting the club.
As well as supporting Pooler’s rugby efforts, Medinet will maintain its commitment to surpassing the medical structures required to satisfy the WRU’s A Licence criteria. This will include providing a full cardiac assessment to all new squad arrivals to test for any susceptibility to Sudden Death Syndrome, an initiative formed in 2013.
“Medinet is delighted to have extended its relationship with Pontypool RFC once again for another season,” said Medinet Managing Director, Peter Jeffreys, who also serves as the club’s Executive Chairman. “Our company is passionate about the rugby club and the people who are a part of the process of rejuvenating the whole environment of the club.
“Pontypool RFC has come a long way over the course of the past three seasons, and it has been very enjoyable to see the process evolve from Championship survival, to cementing a place as top-five Championship club, to putting the building blocks in place to legitimately compete for a Championship title.
“The last six months have been the most productive in terms of achieving the latter objective, and I am very much looking forward to seeing the club develop further over the coming season.”
On the continuation of the relationship between Pontypool RFC and Medinet, Pooler President and former British & Irish Lion, Graham Price, said: “The on-going partnership that Pontypool Rugby Club has with Medinet is a key element of the success and stability the club has recently experienced.
“It continues to demonstrate the confidence that Medinet has with the club’s strategy, both on and off the field, and we are very grateful for their continued dedication to Pontypool Rugby Club.”
