TALL Security Print Backing Rugby League Stars of the Future
Runcorn-based TALL Security Print is proud to be associated with its near neighbour across the Mersey, Rugby League side Widnes Vikings.
Having been a 1st team alternative shirt sponsor for the 2017 season, and looking forward to sponsoring the Academy shirt for the 2018 season, TALL Security Print is delighted to have its name linked with the club.
Now as a Widnes Vikings Pathway Patron, TALL is helping to bring on the next generation of players.
The Widnes Vikings have produced a short video, accessible via this link, (Widnes Vikings Development Squad) that showcases the start of the rugby pathway at the Vikings, which is the Development Squad.
Dave Rolt, Chairman of the Widnes Vikings Development Squad and current Head of Commercial at the Vikings explains, “This is something I have a very close connection with as a former member, way back in 1973. The project is led by Roger Harrison MBE, (President Widnes Vikings Development Squad) who in fact was my first ever rugby coach way back then.”
Dave continued that the… “generous support is vital in giving as many local players the opportunity to realise their dream of representing the Vikings at the highest level possible.”
Brian Carney, Commercial Director at TALL Security Print said, “Our links, as a Pathway Patron, with the Vikings are helping us to come closer to the local community in which we operate, and bringing the ‘TALL Security Print’ brand name to a wider audience. The very nature of our security print business means that we do not publicise the work that we do with our customers. By supporting the Vikings, we certainly are raising our profile.”
TALL Security Print backs the Vikings ahead of big 2017 season kick-off
A Runcorn-based printing company has thrown its weight behind Widnes Vikings’ quest to conquer the 2017 Betfred Super League. TALL Security Print’s logo will be emblazoned on the back of the rugby league team’s brand new alternative shirt, which was officially launched this month.
The company, based in Manor Park, secured the position after taking part in the ‘Vikings Grand Kit Lottery’ last summer with some 40 sponsorship positions on offer across both the 1st team, academy and support staff’s shirts.
The focus of the lottery initiative is to raise valuable funds for the Vikings Sports Foundation, the club’s affiliated charity, that aims to engage, educate and inspire the local community to bring about positive change and new opportunities for all through rugby league. The charity operates across five key areas: School Sport, Aspiration Centre, Vikings Health, Sport 4 All, and Vikings Learning Centre.
Each business that participated made a specified donation and then entered into the lottery draw with every entry drawn out rewarded with a branding opportunity for the 2017 season.
Widnes Vikings will kick off their 2017 campaign on Friday 10th February at home to Huddersfield Giants, before travelling away to Wigan Warriors a fortnight later.
Friendly rivalry at TALL Security Print
Brian Carney, Commercial Director at TALL Security Print, said: “Whilst there is a lot of friendly rivalry in our Runcorn site with fans of several local Super League sides, we couldn’t pass up the opportunity of this shirt sponsorship and the associated links to support our local community. Now in our 25th year of operation in Runcorn, we’re delighted to be developing our partnership with Widnes Vikings just across the River Mersey, especially as they prepare for another exciting season.”
