Fane Valley Group is to become headline sponsor to Royal School Armagh First and Second XV rugby squads for the 2015/16 season.

After a whirlwind tour of South Africa the Royal School Armagh rugby squads have now announced they will team up with local agri-business Fane Valley.

Kenny Hooks, vice-principal Royal School, said: “We are thrilled to have one of the leading businesses in Northern Ireland sponsoring our first and second XVs. Fane Valley has a fantastic reputation as a leader in the agri-industry and we are extremely proud to be able to make this announcement. 

“We have a great relationship with Fane Valley, the company has supported the school with many endeavours over the years in different capacities and we are all looking forward to the season ahead.”

Trevor Lockhart, chief executive of Fane Valley, added: “Fane Valley is delighted to sponsor The Royal School Armagh first and second rugby squads. We have followed the school’s progress recently in South Africa and we hope they can channel those experiences of playing in the southern hemisphere into their new season of school rugby.

“We are happy we can assist and hope we can help contribute towards the team and player development. We would like to wish the squad a productive and successful year.”
