Two of Paisley’s oldest clubs are sticking together

Two of Paisley’s oldest clubs are sticking together for another season in a successful partnership that spans more than a decade.

Kelburne Hockey Club is today celebrating a new sponsorship deal with the town’s Pro-Life Fitness Centre which is run by the recently launched Renfrewshire Sports Charity.

Pro-Life is sponsoring the men’s 3rd 4th and 5th X1 and the ladies 2nd and 3rd X1 and has just supplied the club with some 200 warm-up tops.

As part of the deal Kelburne members also get help with their fitness regimes and nutritional plans as well as preferential rates on membership.

First team player and sponsorship convener Iain Schofield said: “Pro-Life Fitness Centre and Kelburne’s relationship goes back many years and this season sees them supporting a number of teams within Kelburne.

“The Men’s 3rd, 4th, 5th XI teams are a mixture of older players and young developing talent. Similarly the Ladies 2nd and 3rd XI squads have a strong mix of youth and experience which we encourage at the club.

“So it is fantastic that Pro-Life are backing us again in such a generous manner. Without this type of support we could not offer the people of Paisley and elsewhere in Renfrewshire what we do just now. We are a community club and just like Pro-Life we treat all our members as family.”

He added: “Pro-Life has been good to us over the years and we hope this relationship goes on for a long time to come.”

Gayle Brannigan, CEO of RSC, said: “Pro-Life’s bond with Kelburne goes back a long way and we are delighted to be sponsoring the five squads for another year. As well as providing the tops our teamof experts are on hand to help with fitness plans and nutritional advice.

“When RSC was launched we pledged to use the profits to boost funds to our two hospices – ACCORD and St Vincent’s – but also to support Renfrewshire’s rising sports stars and that’s what we are doing here. Both clubs are doing their bit by supporting the local community and I am delighted to carry on our long association with Kelburne.”

The latest sponsorship award from Pro-Life comes hot on the heels of a new deal with the Paisley Pirates.
