Boroughmuir RFC & Boroughmuir Bears announce Gilbert as new kit sponsor

Gilbert Rugby are delighted to announce a long-term agreement with Boroughmuir RFC & Boroughmuir Bears, which will see the brand supply match kit and associated apparel to the club from the 2023-24 season.

The partnership will be all encompassing – focussing not only on supplying kit to the Bears performance programme as they embark on the coming FOSROC Super Series Championship season – but also to the senior Boroughmuir RFC sides and the growing pathway of junior boys and girls at the club.

The new match kit will be on show for the first time when the Bears kick start their FOSROC Super Series Championship campaign at home to Heriots on Friday 28th July at Meggetland.

Bears General Manager, Rob Moffat, said “I am very proud to enter into a long term agreement with Gilbert. They are a global brand synonymous with rugby  which makes them the perfect partner for Boroughmuir RFC and Boroughmuir Bears. The kit designs whilst steeped in history are highly technical and fashionable.”  

Boroughmuir RFC President, Stevie Douglas added “This is a special agreement for the club it reaches across all areas of the club from primary school, high performance, male and female players. The agreement reflects our ‘commitment to one club, one culture, one community’.

Formed in 1919 – the Boroughmuir club are steeped in history and have established themselves as one of the major rugby clubs in Scotland. Currently with a membership base of over 600, the club prides itself on providing a pathway from primary school to international rugby for those who have the talent and appetite.

Gilbert Rugby have been at the forefront of the sport since its inception 200 years ago. The brand will be more visible than ever in 2023 as they celebrate their bicentenary, and will provide the match balls for the Rugby World Cup in France this autumn. As a long term ball and equipment partner to the SRU, Gilbert have always been invested in success of Scottish Rugby and welcome the opportunity to partner with one of its largest clubs.

Gilbert Rugby Head of Sales, Luke Gray, said “We are delighted to welcome Boroughmuir RFC and the Bears to our global network of partners. In any partnership it is important that values are aligned; as a family run company steeped in history we share many common traits with the Boroughmuir club. We were impressed by the future vision the club outlined, focussing on community and inclusion as well as performance on the field.

It is a testament to the quality of our products and the service we are able to provide that a club of such stature have chosen Gilbert teamwear and we can’t wait to see the kit in action in a few weeks time.”
