The Grassy Park-based Titans Rugby Club received a welcome boost from a local business.

The club, which plays in the WP Rugby Unions Southern League, will receive financial aid and kit supply from Busy Corner Butcheries for the next three years.

Speaking at the launch of the sponsorship, Hamied Dhansay said his business has always supported local initiatives and the backing of the club was part of its ongoing support to sports clubs and community-based organisations. “It’s also in line with our company’s social responsibility programme,” said Dhansay.

The event, which was held at the League of Friends of the Blind in Grassy Park, was attended by local community leader Phillip Bam, the sponsors Hamied and Igbal Dhansay and Gert Bam, director of sport, re­creation and amenities of the City of Cape Town.

Club chairperson Sydney Oerson iss delighted with the company’s help while coach John Kayster believes it may help the club’s promotion aspirations.

“We are grateful to the sponsor for the investment in our club. Sponsorship these days are hard to get, but now we must show that the sponsors are backing a winning team.

“It’s our ambition to be promoted to Super League C of Western Province. We are struggling a bit with players, but I’m hopeful that we can boost our membership and help to get some youth involved in our club,” says Kayster.

According to him the club was forced to move its home games to Fairmount High School in Klip Road because its homeground playing surface at Rooikranz Sports Complex is being upgraded.

It was not a good debut at the new home venue for Kayster’s side after going down 25-29 to Peninsula after winning its opening match against Richmond Rangers
