The newly formed Exmouth and Withycombe junior girls' rugby team has bagged itself a super sponsorship following news that the Exmouth branch of RGB Building Supplies is to back them.

Exmouth and Withycombe joined forces to create three teams for Under-13s, Under-15s and Under-18s, playing both friendly and cup games against other teams in the region.

As the only club for girls in the local area, members are given the chance to learn and enjoy the sport, and the club welcomes players of all abilities.

Representatives and players recently paid a visit to RGB’s Exmouth branch to showcase the new kit, purchased thanks to the builders’ merchant’s sponsorship. Amy Gillard, the junior girls’ manager, said: “We are delighted to have a partnership with RGB, who have helped provide the girls with their own identity.

“We were very grateful to be able to debut the shirts in our first ever cup match, which was played in mid-November at Cullompton where our girls enjoyed victory wearing then new kit,”

She continued: “The two rugby clubs have come together with great support from the Exmouth RFC junior section chairman Tristan Bassett and Withycombe junior section chairman Richard Blythe. Thanks to this support, Exmouth and Withycombe junior girls, also known as #Excombe, are rapidly growing in all age groups.”

David Wright, branch manager at RGB Exmouth, added: “We’re pleased to be supporting Exmouth and Withycombe Junior Girls and we were delighted to welcome them to the branch in their new kit. The club is doing a fantastic job in encouraging local girls to get involved in the sport and we wish them every success in their future matches.”
