Mark McSweeney, Commercial Director of Newport Norse, has presented the winning Glasllwch Primary School rugby team with the Newport Norse sponsored Norse Cup.
The Norse Cup and Norse Plate schools’ rugby tournaments were set up at the end of 2017, following a successful application to Norse’s Community Fund by Richard Stacey, Newport Norse’s Senior Quantity surveyor.
The Norse Cup, open to the four strongest teams, and Norse Plate saw 12 schools, representing around a quarter of primary schools in Newport, taking part in competitions during the first two weeks of February 2018.
Norse’s community fund also provided tracksuits for the Under 11 Newport School Rugby Team, of which Richard’s son is a member.
“I am delighted that Newport Norse are able to support grassroots rugby in Newport, by providing both the trophies and also individual medals for all of the children taking part in this competition”, Mark commented. “I was also very impressed by the high standard of rugby played by all the schools taking part.”
