Gosport & Fareham RFC took a special delivery on Sunday as Ben Sutherland from Sparshatts Mitsubishi of Fareham delivered new rugby balls and contact wedges as part of the Kit 4 Clubs scheme from Mitsubishi Motors in the UK.

The initiative, which has been rolled out nationwide, is designed to support grassroots performance with an array of new equipment and kit – all in return for club members, players or supporters taking test drives from any vehicle in the Mitsubishi range. Gosport & Fareham RFC are the first club to benefit from the scheme in England.

Produced by Official England Rugby Partners, Canterbury and Gilbert, the kit available for clubs to earn includes essential items such as playing jerseys, training tops, rain jackets, practice bibs, balls, contact wedges and more.

Ben Sutherland, Sales Manager, Sparshatts Mitsubishi said: “It’s a brilliant way to help support the club, particularly the juniors who really are the future of the game. Sparshatts Mitsubishi are very proud to be involved in the scheme and hope to be able to make a few more deliveries like this throughout the season!”

Neil Fisher, Club Coaching Co-Ordinator, Gosport & Fareham RFC said: “The new kit is a huge help to a club like ours and we’re thankful to Sparshatts Mitsubishi and all of our club members who helped make it happen”.

The Kit 4 Clubs initiative further strengthens the commitment of Mitsubishi Motors to England Rugby, which encompasses all aspects of the game, from the performance partnership at elite level to supporting volunteers at grassroots level via schemes like Kit 4 Clubs.
