Hastings & Bexhill RFC has announced HPS Corporate as new club sponsors.

The sponsorship has enabled the rugby club to purchase pre-match warm-up tops for all three of its senior teams.

H&B chairman Jeremy Hohenkerk said he hoped the sponsorship would prove beneficial to both parties, as the logoed tops would be seen throughout Sussex, Kent and South East London.

HPS managing director Colin Hills said he is delighted to sponsor a progressive club with a wide geographical spread that would undoubtedly aid exposure of the HPS brand. He thanked HPS contracts manager, Ian Davies, a long-standing and enthusiastic club member, for facilitating the sponsorship.

HPS Corporate is a professional construction services company which focuses on light civil engineering, construction and landscaping.

H&B’s first team, meanwhile, will resume its London Three South East campaign with a trip to Old Dunstonians this coming Saturday.

Although fourth-placed Dunstonians are seven places and 39 points above second-bottom H&B, they only won the reverse fixture by seven points.

H&B head coach Kevin Smith said: “Every game we try and put in a performance. We’re just trying to get a win or two. All we can do is keep training, keep working.

“We have 30, 40 minutes of good rugby, but teams are have been that little bit more knowledgeable and that little bit more savvy. But at least half the teams in this league are being paid and no-one here is getting paid.”
