Churchill Drilling Tools, an oilfield services company specialising in drilling innovation, has announced its sponsorship of Peterhead Ladies Rugby Club.
Established in 2017, Peterhead Ladies compete in the Tennent’s Women’s North League and have been looking for new sponsors ahead of the new season, which begins 24/08/2019. With 20 players signed for the new campaign, and new sponsors on board, the team are aiming for their first league win.
Jodie Dalgarno plays as a winger for Peterhead Rugby Club and is also Operations Support Specialist at Churchill’s global headquarters in Aberdeen. She said: “Having a major sponsor such as Churchill Drilling Tools is a real boost for the club and our players as we embark on a new season. The funding allows us to invest in the equipment and help raises the professionalism around the team. We’re very grateful to everyone at Churchill for their support.”
She added: “We’re always looking for new players to come along and give rugby a try. It’s great fun and a brilliant way of keeping fit. Across Scotland in 2018 there has been a 19% increase in women playing rugby, I’m proud that at Peterhead we’re attracting many new recruits to the sport.”
Churchill Drilling Tools has a track record of providing support to local sports initiatives including Cults Tennis Club, Kippie Lodge Golf Club and Transition Extreme. The company and its employees also raise funds for its charity partners, Big Noise Torry.
