This prospectus focuses on two and three year deals so financially we can plan not just season to season but for seasons in advance allowing us greater flexibility for our financial planning. This hard work would have meant nothing unless our partners bought into our vision for the club. We have been lucky that local businesses have got on board, with Cromwell’s, one of the biggest pubs in the town, agreeing to become our kit sponsors and Eat-Clean-Cuisine one of the first healthy eating establishments in Warrington agreeing to sponsor our club wear. This coupled with local businesses Kingsway Flooring, G&T Builders , Lock Down Escape Games, DMT Accountants, Lime Print and Dragon Warmth solutions means we can plan to be around for seasons to come. A close friendship I have with the Finance Director at Arnold Clark, who have previously helped the club with the Hilary Steele dinner, sparked the three year ground sponsorship deal for the club. Luckily for us Arnold Clark came in and said they would be happy to be the ground sponsors for the next three seasons which was a massive boost for us. Having a company of their prowess getting involved at Rylands Sharks just shows where we are moving and how quickly we are moving on. At the end of each season we hold our annual Hilary Steel awards Dinner. In 2015 and 2016 this dinner was held at the Halliwell Jones Stadium in Warrington. We have hosted over 250 people per year at the dinner and it has been hosted by Sky Sports Own Barrie McDermott and Terry O’Connor. 33
