Cannock Rugby Club is the defending champion and will be looking to ensure the team can retain the trophy for a third year in a row. The success of the Rugeley tournament has led to the creation of the Staffordshire 7s series, with events being held across the county in Cannock, Wednesbury and Trentham.
Rugeley Rugby Club Chairman Carl Johnson said, “I am delighted with Ansons Solicitors’ continued support for our club. It is great when a local business is prepared to get behind a community-based rugby club such as ours. We used the money raised at last year’s event to finish off the refurbishment of our club house. I would like to invite local sports fans who fancy watching some top quality rugby to come down and watch on the day. Entrance is free and refreshments will be available to make it a fun day out for all”.
Ansons marketing partner Marie Tisdale said “Ansons is proud to continue to be associated with such a successful tournament. I attended last year’s event and was impressed by the quality of the sport played on the day and I am sure this year will be the same. Ansons Solicitors is committed to our local community and delighted to be able to assist a grass roots sports clubs such as Rugeley.”
