We are delighted to announce our sponsorship of Oldham Rugby Union FC.
Formed in 1905 Oldham Rugby Union have an enthusiasm and passion for rugby which has seen them prosper for over 110 years. A family club, who are extensively involved in the local community, Oldham RUFC are a stalwart of the North Lancashire & Cumbria leagues with several senior teams and a Youth Academy programme.
The deal, which is a first for us, will see Shorts become a shirt sponsor of Oldham RUFC throughout the 2017 and 2018 seasons. It continues our long tradition of supporting national charities, as well as, members of the lift industry and their local communities.
Paul Welsby, Shorts’ Managing Director, said: “We are pleased to be supporting an important element of a local community which is home to both customers and staff. We were initially approached regarding the sponsorship by Phil Walmsley, our Technical Support Engineer, who is a regular in the Oldham team. Once we learned about Oldham’s long history, vast experience and continuous investment in player development we could see the parallels with Shorts. As a leading supplier of lifts, lift components and spares, it is our knowledge and experience together with our continuous development of products and services that sets us apart from our competitors, which is why more and more lift companies are choosing Shorts are their preferred lift supplier.”
