Topsail sponsored Hellingly RFC are having a great season so far and along with the Club’s success they are experiencing increased player and participation numbers.
The 1st XV are currently sitting top of Sussex 1 having gone undefeated so far this season. They have earned the maximum 5 points in all but one of their games and have beaten opponents that the club have been unable to beat in the past 30 years. There are currently only 6 games left of the season but if Hellingly win the next two games with try bonus points, the league will be won and promotion into London South East will be achieved. This will be the first time in the Clubs history that they will be playing in the London leagues and everyone at the club is extremely excited by the prospect.
The Saxons are currently sitting 5th in Sussex 3, in what so far has been an amazing season. This is their first experience of Sussex 3 rugby having been in Sussex 4 since the club decided to run two teams. The Saxons have 5 league games remaining with 4 of them at home. They are aiming to try and finish in the top 3, which will be a fantastic achievement for a club who previously struggled to get enough numbers to filed two teams. The Saxons are also into the Semi Final of the Sussex Bowl.
Company Director, Chris McGowan commented as follows: -
"It is absolutely superb to be a sponsor of a small local club. The club has gone from strength over the past few years and it has proved that with hard work and commitment, the unthinkable becomes possible."
Due to the success of the club over the last couple of seasons and the increased number of people wanting to play for the club, Hellingly hope to field a 3rd team next season.
