Gloucestershire business secures sponsorship deal with Gloucester Rugby

As a child Simon Ford used to watch Gloucester Rugby strut their stuff from what was then called the Tump End at Kingsholm.

From this season the owner of Allstone and Speedy Skips will watch his beloved Cherry and Whites attack a stand that now bears the name of his company.

Allstone started trading as a sand and gravel supplier and builders merchants by Bob and Jeanette Street in 1984 from premises near to their Denmark Road home.

They moved to their current base on Myers Road in 1997 and now operate under the Allstone and Speedy Skips brands.

From this season, the Tump End at Kingsholm will be known as the Speedy Skips Stand.

"We are hugely excited to partner with Gloucester Rugby ahead of the 2019/20 season, particularly during such a positive period for the club after their third place finish last season," Mr Ford said.

"As a local business owner who first started watching the Cherry and Whites from the old Tump End, am incredibly proud to now be sponsoring the West Terrace in a stadium which means so much to me and my family."
