Team members from Whinmoor Warriors’ Rugby League Under-12 squad popped in to Leeds Glass Windows on York Road recently to thank Managing Director Steve Green for sponsoring their smart new kit…
Chair of the Warriors Club, Sue Gumbs says recent off-field improvements to the club’s facilities have led to success on the field – with both the club’s U12 and U15 teams winning their leagues.
Super League future stars
The community club has produced some current Super League players including Castleford player Jordan Tansey and Salford’s Danny Williams: –
And, as Sue says: –
“Without a doubt we’ve some players in our junior teams right now who’ll make it to Super League in years to come!”
Steve Green, himself a player with Wakefield Trinity in past years, says the Leeds Glass Community Fund has helped a number of local initiatives over the years: –
“We’re a Leeds company, established here for over 40 years so whenever we are able – and when budgets permit – we are happy to contribute to community initiatives. We look forward to seeing Whinmoor Warriors’ teams reigning supreme in their leagues!”
Valuable sponsor support
The club’s Development Director David Porter says the teams are attracting more sponsors as their reputation grows: –
“Sponsors often have connections with the club through kids or grand-kids but we’ve been lucky this season to attract sponsorship from companies such as Leeds Glass who don’t have this direct connection. It’s great to have a company with their established reputation on board to sponsor our league-winning under12s.
We can’t thank them and all our sponsors enough for their valuable support!”
