Fish Financial becomes the principal partner of Farnham Rugby Club

Fast growing firm of independent financial advisors, Fish Financial Ltd has become the principal partner of Farnham Rugby Club in a substantial three-year sponsorship deal.

As principal partner, Farnham-based Fish Financial will have pride of place on the club’s playing strip worn by five senior sides, a dozen junior (U12-Academy) sides and over 400 mini (U11) players plus branding throughout the club house.  Those shirts are not only seen at the club but at away fixtures across the southern home counties and south London.  Fish Financial are also title sponsor of the annual Sportsman’s Lunch, a key event in the local business networking calendar hosted at the club.

“We are thrilled to support Farnham Rugby,” said Ian Colley, Fish Financial founder and Managing Director. “They are fast growing and successful. So are we. They are a solid organisation that abides by rugby’s core values of teamwork, respect and disciple – as we do. They play an innovative and expansive game and have a well-earned reputation for fair play and sportsmanship. That has a lot in common with our approach to financial advice.

“Furthermore, Farnham Rugby Club is first and foremost a community club and by teaming up with them, we reinforce our commitment to the Farnham area,” said Colley.

“We welcome Fish Financial to the Farnham Rugby Club family,” said Chairman, Geoff Robins. “They join us an important time in our evolution.  Our move to the fabulous facilities at Monkton Lane in 2012 had a huge impact on membership and we are bulging at the seams.  To meet our commitment to provide rugby for as many people as possible of all ages, genders and ability, we need to expand these facilities. Fish Financial’s contribution – along with that from all our sponsors – gives us a real boost in that quest.”

About Farnham Rugby Club:

Farnham Rugby Union Football Club is a thriving amateur sports club providing rugby for around 1000 playing members aged from over sixty to under six. The 1st XV competes in London 2 South West and the club fields four other senior teams, two in the Surrey reserve leagues, one in the Hampshire leagues and a veteran’s side. All of its Junior and Mini age groups field multiple teams and there is a waiting list to join the club as a Mini. In recent years, the club has reinvigorated its Women and Girls Section and now boasts over fifty player in a section that will play in both country and national competitions this season.

The club is a relative newcomer in rugby terms being founded in 1975. The club transformed when it moved in 2012 to new grounds – with two floodlit and two full, international sized pitches – with a clubhouse that is the envy of all who visit. Since then, the 1st XV is playing at their highest level ever with credible ambitions this year to be promoted to London 1. Meanwhile, the growth in membership is outstripping these new facilities.  Visit the Farnham Rugby Club website to find out more.
