A RUGBY team will be turning out in new kit next season thanks to a sponsorship deal with Gisborough Hall.

Guisborough Rugby Club, ‘The Priorymen’, as they’re known, play in the Durham and Northumberland Division One at Belmangate in Guisborough.

Graham Henderson CBE, chairman of the club, said: “It’s a great boost for the club to have Gisborough Hall on board. Support like this is invaluable in helping the club to continue to make improvements and implement its development plan.”

Ruairidh Taylor, manager at the hotel, said: “The rugby club has a great heritage in our town and is doing really well.

"We’re delighted to be able to be one of their sponsors and watch them progress as the season continues.”
