Nice conversion! Rural estate agent sponsors rugby juniors

When you hear rural estate agent Edward Hall talking about a ‘nice conversion’ he’s not necessarily admiring a barn turned into a luxury dwelling.

The agent – who heads the office at Smiths Gore in Marlborough – has just signed a sponsorship deal with the junior rugby team.

The squad hope to emulate the success of the first XV, who this weekend walloped Bath Saracens 95-5 in the Dorset & Wilts 2 North league.

Edward said: “The enthusiasm and level of skill of the youngsters is inspiring and Smiths Gore is delighted to be able to contribute in a small way to the continued success of all the teams.”

Peter Woods, chairman of the junior and mini section said: “Marlborough RFC are delighted to welcome Smiths Gore as a sponsor, which adds considerably to the level of training we can offer our players.”

MRFC have recently agreed use of the astro turf at Marlborough College and to expand the number of training pitches on Marlborough Common with the Town Council.
