Dons have New Image makeover
Doncaster Rugby League Club is delighted to announce that local company New Image Contracts Ltd have become the club’s latest sponsor that will feature on the Dons new playing strip for 2013.
Richard Christison, managing director of New Image Contracts, has been a member of the Dons’ Advisory Group since March but has links with the club dating back to the mid 1990’s when he was a director and has been heavily involved with match day sponsorship throughout the 2012 season in Co-operative Championship One.
Richard’s company also played an instrumental part in the significant capture of Challenge Cup winner Paul Cooke when he pledged to pay the remaining monies that the club were short of to seal Cooke’s move through the Dons Squadbuilder fund.
New Image Contracts is based in Askern and have assembled a successful reputation based on service and reliability of the utmost quality since the company was established some 25 years ago.
During this time New Image has carried out a large number of passive fire protection, industrial painting, fire stopping, air sealing, taping and jointing, decorating, and floor coating contracts, which have included working on some of the UK's most prestigious projects including the new Wembley Stadium and our very own Keepmoat Stadium.
The company's impressive client base includes McDonalds, Brookfields, TC Harrison, JCT600 and they have worked on many other landmark sites throughout the UK including the Strata building in London, Cheapside, the Milton Keynes Arena, the O2 Arena and Peterborough Hospital.
Dons’ chief executive, Carl Hall, said: “We’re thrilled Richard has stepped up his involvement with the club after being a valuable member of the Dons Advisory Group for the last eight months.”
“Richard has strong links with the Dons and, as a former director, has witnessed many ups and downs in its history and fully appreciates the value of success we’ve enjoyed this season.”
“Club sponsorship is an integral part of the Dons business make-up and the game of rugby league in general and will play an important role in our aims to maintain Championship status next season.
“On behalf of the club I’d like to thank Richard and New Image Contracts for their kind sponsorship and I’m confident this will be both a long and mutually beneficial partnership for all concerned.”
Richard Christison, managing director of New Image Contracts, said: “The Dons have enjoyed a remarkable turnaround of fortune in recent years and I’m very pleased to be associated with a prosperous and forward thinking organisation.
“Being part of the club has been beneficial for my company through the networking opportunities that are available on match days and within the Advisory Group, and I have been able to attain some very useful business contacts from this.
“The Dons have just experienced an unbelievable season and they’ve served the town proud and put Doncaster firmly back on the rugby league map for all the right reasons.
“I was also proud to be a part of this success and would like to congratulate Carl, Steve (Scholes), John (Scarrow) and the club for their tremendous achievements in 2012 and wish them all the best for the forthcoming season.”
