New scoreboard installed at Mayfield Rugby Club

Date published: 11 November 2023

A new scoreboard has been installed at Mayfield Rugby Club thanks to the generosity of sponsors John Yearsley, Dale Projects and Rentruck.

As always at amateur club level, success, both on and off the field, relies heavily upon the generosity of sponsors. Mayfield is no exception to this rule and over the years the club has had some very generous benefactors.

Local people and businesses have sponsored everything at the club from kits to equipment. The latest sponsorship deal has again lifted the club another notch. Gone is the old fashioned worn out scoreboard and in its place is a new electronic scoreboard.

Replacing the scoreboard has long been a dream of club director Pete Duffy, Pete said: "Updating the old scoreboard has been in my sights for a couple of years now but we have never had the money available. I have developed a lot of relationships with local businesses over the years and so I decided to approach them for help. As always they stepped up to the plate straight away with. John Yearsley, Dale Projects and Rentruck all dug deep when I approached them and the result is a state of the art brand new all singing all dancing bluetooth enabled scoreboard.

"I am absolutely delighted with the outcome, it cost a lot and may not be seen as an essential for an amateur club but at Mayfield we like to think outside the box and it's these things that we believe lifts us from being just an amateur club to being an amateur club that is run in a professional manner and with people like this backing us there's no end to what we can achieve."
