3rd July 2019 — The RGS cricket team has been given a big reason to smile following news of a sponsorship deal with Queensway Dental.
Members of the 1st X1 are looking forward to another enjoyable and successful season sporting their new kit, thanks to the generous donation from the dental surgery which has practices in Jesmond and Billingham.
This exciting new partnership not only benefits the team but also allows additional funding to be put into the school’s bursary scheme, helping students to continue to thrive.
Speaking about the sponsorship, Director of Development, Susan Beck, said: “We are so pleased to have formed this new relationship with Queensway Dental and look forward to working with them over the coming year.
“This partnership is especially exciting as it strengthens our ties with our local community, something which is important to all of us at RGS.”
RGS’ first X1 contains the best cricketers from the senior year groups, aged 15 to 18, with all the students in the team having played county age group cricket. The team plays block and single fixtures against other schools, cricket academies, county age group sides, visiting teams such as MCC and overseas touring sides.
While the team often enjoys much success throughout the season, the highlight of this year was the win over Durham Academy following a stunning all round team performance, the best part of which was an unbeaten century from one of the players, Bobby Green.
Queensway Specialist Orthodontist and partner, Dr Guy Deeming, said: “We are delighted to support RGS and feel proud to see our name on the front of the kit of this successful team.
“Supporting our local community is something very important to us and we are really looking forward to working closely with RGS. We hope this relationship can continue to develop and grow in the future.”
