A new sponsor has emerged from the pack to fund a new kit and training gear for Sandown and Shanklin Rugby Club.

The Hurricanes have been enjoying success on pitch this season – and now the players will be looking the part too.

The new kitwear has been funded by new Isle of Wight company, Outdoor Living Solutions (OLS).

Wayne Williams, who runs OLS, has been connected to The Hurricanes since joining the club – aged 7, going on to play rugby in national leagues across the country.

Wayne, who still plays for The Hurricanes and set up OLS last year, said:

“My dad played rugby and that got me into it as a youngster. I have always supported The Hurricanes and I want to help the club as much as I can become established in the higher leagues.

“I feel it brings even more professionalism to the club, which it deserves.”

OLS have provided 45 new tracksuits, warm up gear kit and playing kit.

League action returns tomorrow (Saturday December 7), with Sandown & Shanklin 1st XV making the trip over to Havant RFC 2nd XV and the Sandown & Shanklin 2nd VX hosting Winchester Knights at The Fairway, Sandown.
