Lasswade RFC club president, Ian Barr said: “Our thanks once again go to Alex F Noble & Son for their continued support over an amazing thirty-one year period, but particularly over the last eight years as main sponsor.
“Their new kit sponsorship, which includes home and away playing jerseys as well as shorts and socks for both the senior teams, allows the club to remain competitive at senior level.
“We have a fantastic facility at Lasswade with one of the best pitches in club rugby and a super clubhouse which is a great venue for after match hospitality and entertainment.
‘‘Naturally, our facilities are expensive to run so the continuing sponsorship from Alex F Noble & Son is therefore greatly appreciated”.
David Noble, dealer principle at Alex F Noble & Son Nissan said: “We’re very pleased to be continuing our association with Lasswade RFC into a thirty-first year.
‘‘The club president tells me the teams are proud to wear our name on their jerseys, which of course is very gratifying, but it’s also a great way of promoting the Alex F Noble & Son Nissan brand within the local community”.
Elsewhere at the club, the 2nd XV have continued to improve with some excellent young players coming through the youth section.
