A successful Cornish car dealership is teaming up with one of the county's most prestigious rugby clubs ahead of the 2017/18 season.

Dales Cornwall, which has just announced the construction of a new car showroom at Scorrier, will be one of Redruth Rugby Club's major sponsors for the forthcoming campaign and will see their logos proudly displayed on the first team kit.

Sales director at Dales Cornwall, Jeremy Rouse, said: “Work on our new Vauxhall showroom on the outskirts of Redruth is due to start in the next few weeks and what better way to reaffirm our commitment to the community around us than by supporting the Reds for the new season. The club has a proud heritage and a bright future, something we are delighted to support.”

Ground works on the new showroom at Scorrier start imminently and when finished the building will boast state-of-the-art technology and amenities, for staff and customers alike.

Chairman of Redruth Rugby Club, Treve Dunstan, said: “We are delighted to be partnering with Dales Cornwall for the 2017/18 season, it is thanks to support from businesses like Dales that we can continue our investment into the future of the game. We are growing our facilities and I am proud to say we have an outstanding number of young people playing the game here and that will only be of benefit for the club in the future.”

Jeremy added: “This is an exciting time for Dales Cornwall and we are looking forward to kicking off not only the new National League Two campaign alongside Redruth Rugby Club, but also seeing our new building take shape at Scorrier.”
