Two Alnwick-based businesses have announced that they are sponsoring Alnwick Rugby Club for another season.

Alnwick-based metrology software products ltd (MSP), which provides software solutions to the manufacturing industry, and William Hackett, which manufactures and distributes chain products, are backing the Greensfield side.

The first team play in North One East and opened their season last week with a 70-10 win over Guisborough.

MSP’s Tony Brown said: “We are proud to be part of the community and offer support where we can to the local team and club. We hope that Alnwick’s win against Guisborough at the weekend is the beginning of another successful season for the club.”

Dennis Hetherington, club chairman and senior vice-president, thanked MSP for the club’s new first team strips and William Hackett for the new training kit. He said: “We are delighted to have their continued support.”
