The Cornish Pirates are pleased to announce that Cornish firm Greenmount Carpets will be a kit sponsor this season, the company’s name to appear on the right sleeve.
Jeremy Stephens, owner of Greenmount Carpets, has commented:
This has been something that I have been considering for many years. We have been investing our money in other clubs and I believe the Pirates are the future of Cornish rugby.
Rugby is my passion and choosing to invest in it I wanted to combine two growing businesses with a view to making this a long-term relationship. The professionalism and support we have already received from the Cornish Pirates has been second to none and this confirms that Greenmount Carpets have made the right decision.
Speaking on behalf of the Cornish Pirates, Financial Director Rebecca Thomas said:
Greenmount Carpets have been a prominent name around Cornish Rugby for a number of years and we are delighted to have them on board as sponsors for next season. They are a well-established, local company and it has been great to link up with them and develop this relationship.
