Guernsey Rugby Union Football Club’s (GRFC) Barry Goude has received a welcome boost to his sporting career with sponsorship from Guernsey’s leading estate agent Livingroom.
Mr Goude, who is part of the GRFC team promoted to National 3 South East League this year, will use the sponsorship to fund extra training equipment and kit for the team.
Mr Goude works at HSBC Securities Services (Guernsey) Limited and began his rugby career 24 years ago.
“Livingroom’s generosity can only help us in the new league this season. We are so pleased that a local business wants to be a part of the rise of Guernsey RFC,” Mr Goude said.
“This year’s promotion to the National League 3 was fantastic and I hope that the performance from me and the team will inspire Livingroom to work with us in the future.”
Livingroom director Simon Torode said: “Barry embodies the ethos of someone who works hard to excel and we want to encourage this kind of spirit.
“We are happy to be able to help the team in the 2012/13 season and will be watching the GRFC’s success with extra enthusiasm this year.”
