We are delighted to announce that Codestone will be the shirt sponsor for the 1st XV and Ladies U18 teams and to be community sponsors for the coming 2018/2019 rugby season.
As a Dorset technology business with our roots firmly in the south west, Bournemouth Rugby is an association close to our hearts. We’re really proud to be part of our local community and becoming one of next season’s sponsors for two great teams was a perfect fit.
Very much like rugby, our ethos is about teamwork and helping people and businesses achieve their true potential, hence our strapline – Inspire, Transform, Achieve. Bournemouth Rugby’s vision, unveiled last year by its CEO James Croker, is to provide community support underlined by the Club’s ethos of teamwork, respect, enjoyment, discipline and sportsmanship. At Codestone our own amazing teams work closely and collaboratively for similar goals – to achieve their very best.
Our COO Dan Hobson commented, “We’re really excited to sponsor the sporting men and women at Bournemouth Rugby for the coming season. The club has gone from strength to strength and its community spirit and support for youth players is inspirational. This philosophy perfectly aligns with our vision for our own people, customers and suppliers. We wish the teams the best of luck for next season!”
James Croker, CEO Bournemouth Rugby says, “Codestone is the first sponsor to have a presence running through the club. We have senior performance rugby, the community team, the youth and the girls and the Codestone sponsorship is a thread that joins them all. They were the first sponsors to say ‘actually we want to be in every corner of Bournemouth Rugby.”
James continues, “We’re successful in that we’re changing the shape of local and regional sport by making sure that we are outwardly facing, rather than an internal club looking in. We look at areas of deprivation and children with learning disabilities and we want to be completely inclusive. The community patrons, of which Codestone is one, enables us to go into schools and areas of deprivation and to work with these children.”
