“The ladies team is a high achieving and friendly outfit and as a father of three girls myself, I’m delighted we are supporting womens sport in our local community.”
Olney Ladies RFC, one of the longest-running and most successful ladies teams in the area, is partnering with estate agents Jackson Waite in a two-year sponsorship deal.
Sponsoring the team’s shirts and shorts, the local estate agent's logo will be visible across the region as Olney Ladies compete in the National Challenge Midlands 1 league against teams in Rugby, Peterborough, Northampton and Lutterworth.
Tim Jackson-Waite, Director of Jackson Waite, (pictured with Jen Micklewright and his daughter Olivia), said: “With the Jackson Waite family operating in Olney and its surrounds and with over three decades of buying and selling experience, I have seen at close hand the impressive rise of women’s rugby in Olney and beyond. The ladies team is a high achieving and friendly outfit and as a father of three girls myself, I’m delighted we are supporting womens sport in our local community.”
Captain of the ladies side - which was established 26 years ago - Jen Micklewright, said: “We are over the moon to have Jackson Waite’s support for the next two seasons and want to thank Tim and his team for coming on board with Olney Ladies. Women’s rugby is enjoying increasing popularity and it’s fantastic to have the backing of this local independent company as we build on our success from last season.”
