Gilbert Rugby News — Published on September 6 , 2016

Gilbert Rugby will become the official and exclusive clothing and equipment supplier to Yorkshire RFU from the 2016-17 season.

The partnership will see all Yorkshire RFU representative teams wear Gilbert match and training kit; from the seniors in the county championship to the junior age groups and successful women’s teams.

Gilbert, in conjunction with Yorkshire RFU, have designed a brand new match shirt for the coming season – focussing on the history and heritage of the white rose county. A specially designed range of training and leisurewear items will also be available for players and supporters to purchase from a new Yorkshire Webshop, available soon.

The agreement will also see Yorkshire RFU offer Gilbert products to their affiliated clubs.

Richard Gray, Sales and Marketing Director of Gilbert said “Gilbert are very proud to have been awarded the contract to supply the Yorkshire RFU’s kit.  This is yet another welcome endorsement of the growing popularity of the Gilbert Teamwear programme that is increasingly adopted at all levels of the game from International referees in Rio to the Newcastle Falcons and Newport Gwent Dragons and a host of clubs and schools across the rugby world. We look forward to working closely with Yorkshire and wish all their representative teams every success for the coming season.”

Richard Matthews, Hon. Secretary, Yorkshire Rugby Union Football Limited said “Yorkshire has a deep-rooted history in Rugby Union and it is fantastic to be able to come together with such a well-established rugby company as Gilbert. Players and coaches alike will be able to wear the latest quality rugby clothing to not only make them feel the part but also be able to perform to the highest level possible. Our supporters needn’t feel left out as there will soon be a supporters range available too. We very much look forward to nurturing the brand of Yorkshire Rugby together.”
