The curtain has come down on another excellent season of rugby at Percy Park RFC.
The North Shields-based outfit, established in 1872, field three men’s sides, a women’s team and no fewer than eleven junior categories.
Wade Financial are based a mere fifteen-minute walk from the club, and have served as sponsors of Percy Park for four seasons. In that time, Park’s first XV has made significant progress in three of those four campaigns, and the fifth-placed finish achieved this season is their highest since the 2014/15 campaign.
Meanwhile, Percy Park’s junior setup continues to grow at a pace. The club offers junior rugby sessions for six to 18-year-olds, with over 300 young players taking part each week.
Our very own David Dodds and Hannah Witty were in attendance at the Preston Avenue clubhouse to dish out some of the richly deserved awards to Park’s promising juniors at their presentation evening.
“It was wonderful seeing so many faces at Preston Avenue celebrating another great season,” said David. “When we first linked up with the club, we were impressed with their commitment to youth development, providing excellent facilities and first-class coaching to a generation of youngsters. Our fourth year as sponsors has been another successful one, and we look forward to seeing what the future holds at Preston Avenue.”
