Tug of war team continues to pull in support
Cornhill tug of war team has seen a partnership with a local firm continue which will enable it to compete for national and European titles and progress to contest on the world stage.
The squad is going from strength to strength with a recent string of successes including being the first Scottish team to win the 600kg closed event at the British and Irish Championships, the first Scottish mens team to win a medal at the European Championships in September as well as picking up seven titles at this year’s Scottish Championships.
Motive Offshore Group has announced it has extended its partnership with the team.
The company, a global solutions provider of a full range of rental equipment and services including high capacity winches, spoolers and subsea equipment, also supports other local teams having been named the main sponsors of Deveronvale FC earlier this year and Banff Rugby Club for the previous four years.
Motive Offshore chief operating officer James Gregg said: “Being a Banff-established company, with a very local workforce, we have and always will have a strong connection to the community.
"Therefore we feel it’s only natural that we show our support for our local teams, helping to fly the flag for the area.
"The Cornhill tug of war team has shown such motivation and determination; we’re delighted to be able to back them to help them on their way to further greatness.”
Coach for the Cornhill team, David McKenzie, said: “It’s great to have the support of Motive for the season, especially as they’re a local company.
"The sponsorship and additional support they have provided has really spurred the team on.
"The big goal for the team now is to work towards qualifying for the world championships in Spain next September.”
