The Jewson logo features on the front of York Acorn’s rugby jerseys under a new sponsorship deal.

Matt Freer, manager of the Jewson store in Green Lane, Clifton said: “York is renowned for its rugby talent and Acorn are at the forefront of not only the city’s but the national rugby scene. Jewson has a strong presence in York with a large customer base. We recognise their passion for the sport and are proud to make this official association with the club.”

Acorn also has junior sides from under-8s upwards.

Club secretary Alan Havercroft said: “We are delighted Jewson have agreed to come on board as a sponsor for the season. We have worked extremely hard to develop a strong brand, and it is particularly satisfying that the strength of the brand is such that we are able to confirm a sponsor of the calibre of Jewson. We are extremely grateful to all our sponsors and partners, who have a big part to play in what we are attempting to do here.”
