The first team at Burnley Rugby Union Football Club are sporting new look warm-up tops after sponsorship support from a local business.

Businesswise Solutions, a cost reductions company based in Nelson, has generously donated funds to pay for the waterproof training tops, branding them with their logos on the back.

The business was introduced to the club by Businesswise’ senior cost reduction specialist Billy Ingham, the all-time leading try-scorer for the club, which plays in the North Lancashire League.

Billy said: “Businesswise is keen to support local causes whenever it can, so it made sense for me to ask if they would sponsor the branded tops.”

Simon Finnan, first team coach, added: “We really appreciate the support of Businesswise.

“Looking professional certainly helps when facing with our competitors; all we have to do now is win!”
