VANBAR associates join the pack at Nunroyd Park

VANBAR associates is delighted to be one of a growing number of local companies to sponsor a player for the 2016-17 season at Yorkshire Division 3 table-toppers Aireborough RUFC. 

Kris Brook, who deservedly lifted the 'Player of the Year' and 'Clubman of the Year' trophies at the end of last season, in our view represents all that is good about rugby union in general and 'Aire' in particular.

As well as his own training and playing commitments with the 1st XV, Kris also serves as Coaching Coordinator with the club's junior section, the Aireborough Lions, and even finds the time to be Head Coach with the Under 9s.  

Unbeaten in September with four wins from four games, Aire go into Saturday's home encounter with Castleford determined to consolidate their lofty league position with a bonus point victory. 

The club has designated this Saturday as a Sponsors Day with a buffet and pre-game drinks in the clubhouse, followed by the game which kicks-off at 3pm.  

The 1st XV will also be wearing their brand new kit and, afterwards, there will be presentations and a chance to mingle with the players and other sponsors.

If you are interested in sponsoring the club or a player, Nick Jackson would be delighted to hear from you.  His email address is

We hope to see you at Nunroyd Park on Saturday and, with a bit of decent ball, maybe Kris will treat the big crowd to one or two of these.
