Junior Academy unveils new Suffolk Cottages Holidays sponsored kit
Bury St Edmunds Rugby Club's Junior Academy has unveiled its latest kit thanks to the generosity of its new sponsor, Suffolk Cottage Holidays.
The squad, which was established four years ago as the stepping stone for players moving from youth rugby into the senior pro-am squad, is to be sponsored by the holiday lettings agency for the 2018/19 and 2019/20 season.
Suffolk Cottage Holidays are the county’s only countryside holiday lettings specialist and provide an exceptional selection of the countryside properties across Suffolk for holiday rental. The fifteen-year-old company has identified Bury St Edmunds and the surrounding areas as key growth areas for the holiday lettings market and, just as the junior team are ambassadors for promoting Bury, Suffolk Cottage Holidays are also flying the flag for the town.
Junior Academy enjoyed a solid season last year and have an exciting one ahead under new head coach and Wolfpack player Andrea Pozzi. Andrea is an Italian tight head prop and has joined Bury St Edmunds Rugby Club from Italian Serie A club Pesaro.
Speaking about the Junior Academy sponsorship Julian Brackenbury, General Manager of Suffolk Cottage Holidays said:
“As the county’s only holiday lettings agency specialising in the Suffolk countryside, we’re proud to be supporting young talent from Bury St Edmunds and surrounding areas and wish the team the very best of success in the coming years.”
Bury St Edmunds Rugby Club Chairman David Reid added: "It's a pleasure to welcome Suffolk Cottage Holidays on board as part of our Bury Rugby family of key sponsors. Their sponsorship of the Junior Academy is a wonderful boost to a squad which is young, energetic and has the potential to go far. As they travel across East Anglia, they will clearly be proud to the wear our new sponsored shirts."
