Pontypool RFC is pleased to announce that Pontypool Community Council has pledged to support the club for the 2015/2016 SSE SWALEC Championship campaign.
Under the guidance of its 21 elected members, Pontypool Community Council is responsible for contributing towards the vast amount of community services and activities delivered throughout the town of Pontypool. This includes supporting local sporting entities, such as Pontypool RFC.
As has been the case for the previous two seasons, the iconic Pontypool Community Council crest will continue to occupy a prominent position on the match day shorts worn by the Pooler squad throughout the entire season. Pontypool RFC will also maintain its ticketing programme with the local body, which enables Pontypool Community Council to provide a number of complimentary Pontypool RFC match tickets to members of the community.
“As our main club within our geographical area, Pontypool RFC remains a focal point within our community,” said Chair of Pontypool Community Council, Cllr Bryn Parker. “Pontypool Community Council recognises this fact and will continue to support the rugby club as best it can
“Members recognise the contribution that Pontypool RFC is making to the community and we wish everyone associated with the club a successful climb back to the top of Welsh rugby.”
Pontypool RFC Chief Executive Officer, Ben Jeffreys, said: “We are exceptionally grateful for the continued generosity of Pontypool Community Council. A fundamental remit of Pontypool RFC is to ensure that any momentum gained by the club serves as a driver of success for the wider community.
“Trying to bring some further vibrancy back to the town of Pontypool is at the forefront of our ambitions, so to retain the support of a body that serves the needs of over 35,000 local community members is a productive step forward in achieving this objective.
“The team at Pontypool Community Council continues to be a genuine support of Pooler’s quest for Premiership rugby and the positive impact this will have on Pontypool. We look forward to continuing this relationship into the future.”
Pontypool RFC wishes to express its sincerest of thanks to Pontypool Community Council for their continued support of the club.
