A-Plant stick with Oldham

Date published: Tuesday, April 1, 2014
   A-PLANT, one of the UK’s leading equipment hire companies, have become Oldham Rugby League Club’s main shirt sponsors for a third year in a row.
The new deal was signed off at A-Plant’s Manchester North depot at Pilsworth Industrial Estate, Bury, the company’s biggest depot with a staff of more than 70.
Roughyeds chairman Chris Hamilton shook hands on it with the depot’s general manager Wayne Maddocks and his assistant Mike Humphreys.
Though Merseyside soccer fans, they have become keenly interested in rugby league, and in the Oldham club particularly, over the past two seasons.
Said Wayne: “We’ve developed an affinity with the club on our many enjoyable visits to Whitebank and we’re delighted to be main shirt sponsors for a third year.
“The club is working hard to make progress on and off the field and A-Plant wants to support that work and to be part of what the club is striving to achieve.”
Mike endorsed those sentiments and added: “Scott Naylor’s side gave us some great entertainment last year, despite disappointment in the final, and hopefully they can go one better this time.
“A-Plant will be supporting them all the way.”
The company has a new outlet — Tool Hire Express — in city-centre Manchester.
On behalf of the club, Chris Hamilton thanked A-Plant for its continuing backing and added: “We know from previous years that we’re going to have another successful partnership.
“A-Plant supports us in many different ways — not just on match days — and Wayne and Mike enjoy watching the team in action and are committed to doing the best they can for us.
“Hopefully, we can have another good season and this time give them a taste of success at the end of it.”
