RLC netball shoots to win

The Royal Logistic Corps (RLC) Netball Association is aiming for victory in the 2019 Army Inter-Corps Netball Championships thanks to sponsorship support from Briggs Defence.

Under the terms of the three-year agreement the defence division of Briggs Equipment will provide funding for playing and training kit and equipment. The sponsorship will also cover competition entry fees and support two tours, the most recent of which coincided with the Netball World Cup.

Major Toni Gray, captain of The RLC Netball Association, said: “With two tours underpinned by the fantastic sponsorship provided by our new partner, Briggs Defence, I believe there will never be a better time for RLC netball to thrive.”

“Our goal for this year is to win the Army Inter-Corps Netball Championships, which is absolutely achievable if everyone buys into the vision and goes the extra mile both on and off the court.”

Gary Clements of Briggs Defence added: “Having sponsored The RLC’s rugby union programme since 1998, our aim with this new deal is to help the RLC Netball Association to return to its championship-winning ways whilst also strengthening still further our mutually beneficial relationship with the Corps.”

Founded in 1994, the RLC Netball Association attracts women of all abilities, from local league players to international competitors. One of the Association’s players competed in the 2018 Gold Coast Commonwealth Games whilst the membership also includes two combined services players and five each at Army and Army Masters level.

Three RLC Netball Association teams participate in Inter-Corps league fixtures at military establishments and play matches and competitions against local teams from Wiltshire and Gloucestershire.

In Sep, The RLC Netball Association will embark on a tour to Jamaica, playing fixtures against the Jamaican Defence Force and various local league sides.
