Award-winning bed and breakfast St Cuthbert’s House is the latest business to join Newcastle Falcons as a player sponsor for the season ahead.
Newcastle Falcons are pleased to report that award-winning Northumberland bed and breakfast St Cuthbert’s House have become the latest business to join Newcastle Falcons as a player sponsor for the season ahead.
Having recently won the Gold Award for Guest Accommodation at the Visit England Awards for Excellence 2014, the luxury bed and breakfast offers 5-star accommodation in the coastal town of Seahouses, Northumberland.
Signing up to sponsor England Under-20s and Falcons Senior Academy wing Zach Kibirige, St Cuthbert’s House now joins a host of other high profile North East brands in working with the club and will enjoy a number of exclusive benefits throughout the 2014-15 season as a result.
Owner Jeff Sutheran said: "It's such a thrill for us to be able to sponsor Zach, and to forge a partnership with Newcastle Falcons. It's great to be contributing in such a positive way to something we're all passionate about, and at the same time raising the profile of our business.
“We're sure Zach will mature into a key part of both the Falcons and England setup and we're proud to be playing a very small part in encouraging his development."
Owned and run by Jeff and his wife Jill, St Cuthbert’s House is a stunningly refurbished former church which boasts six ensuite bedrooms alongside many of the building’s original features and a number of newly created luxurious touches.
Since moving to the area and purchasing St Cuthbert’s House 16 years ago the Sutherans and their four adult children, two of whom continue to play rugby to a good standard, have been passionate supporters of rugby in the region, and of the Falcons particularly. This season’s agreement marks the first time they have signed up as sponsors of the club.
Commercial Sales and Retail Manager Clare Short said: “It’s always good to have new businesses work with the club and we’re thrilled to see St Cuthbert’s House come on board as player sponsors. Despite his young age, Zach has already made a big impact both here at the Falcons and in the England Under-20s set up and we’re confident that he’s the perfect player to partner with such a high profile business.
“Working with the Sutherans has already been a pleasure, not least because it’s meant a number of trips up to the stunning St Cuthbert’s House in such a beautiful part of our region! We’re thrilled to be working with the family and their business and look forward to building a strong relationship with them going forward.”
Player sponsorship packages for 2014-15 are still available for a number of our first team and Senior Academy players, including some of our newer signings. For more information and to find out how you can become more involved with the club please contact the Commercial Sales team on 0191 214 2892.
