FOOTBALL - Rugby Borough announce new sponsor whilst Women's and reserve teams held to draws

RUGBY Borough FC announced ViewSonic UK as a new sponsor earlier this week – whilst their Women’s and reserve teams were both held to draws in tough conditions last weekend.

 

Boro’s Men’s side are currently top of the Leicestershire Senior League Premier Division – having won all 15 of their league matches this season.

 

And the club now has a new major sponsor in ViewSonic UK – a world leading manufacturer of visual technology hardware with education one of its core markets.

 

ViewSonic UK Sales Director James Jepson said: “It’s a privilege to sponsor such a good club, we have high hopes for the first team but it’s also great news that Liam O Neill will be relocating his Academy here

 

“We have already made a commitment to support it next year with an interactive view board for match and player analysis, it’s good to be part of it from a business perspective and we hope it’s the start of something big.”

 

Boro’s Men’s side are next in action away at Northfield Emerald on Saturday, December 4 with kick-off at 3pm at the Emerald Centre.

 

Both the Ladies team and reserves were in action last weekend with the former held to a 2-2 draw against Cookley Sports Ladies in bitterly cold and snowy conditions.

 

Lauren Thompson opened the scoring for the visitors after just four minutes before Beth Fesel equalised with a stunning lob on 10 minutes at Kilsby Lane.

 

And after Thompson had restored Cookley’s lead before half-time – the snow began to fall in the West Midlands Regional Women’s Football League Division One South fixture.

 

Despite the conditions slowing down the pace of the game – Boro found their leveller on 56 minutes through Cammie Tarrant from an indirect free-kick.

 

Rugby Borough Women return to action away at Leamington on Sunday, December 12 with kick-off at 2pm at the Community Stadium.

 

And Boro’s reserves also took to the field last weekend as they made the trip to Sutton Bonington in Nottingham with a squad ravaged by injuries and suspensions.

 

Rugby came away with a 1-1 draw – despite falling behind in the seventh minute when a lack of concentration at the back allowed Sutton’s striker to tap home.

 

Manager Greg Taylor made a cameo appearance from the bench in the second-half and he set-up Tom Ford for Boro’s equaliser when he found the bottom corner after the ball was cut back into his path.

 

Boro goalkeeper Max Alford made some fine saves in the closing stages to preserve a point for Taylor’s side with Ethan Fox taking the man of the match award.

 

The reserves are in action again this weekend when they travel to Blaby in the City Goldsmiths Presidents Trophy on Saturday, December 4 with kick-off at 2pm at Blaby and Whetstone Youth Club.
