We’re very excited to announce we are teaming up with Castleford Tigers Women’s rugby league team as sponsor of England international winger Kelsey Gentles.
Kelsey, who will be 21 next Thursday (30th January), was top try scorer and Castleford Tigers supporters’ player of the year in 2019, and was a nominee for Telegraph Woman of Steel (the player of the year in Women’s Super League) after helping Castleford to the League Leaders Shield and to both the Challenge Cup Final and Super League Grand Final.
She was also part of the England team which competed in the World Cup 9s in Sydney and the tour of Papua New Guinea.
“Being supported by a business that’s based in another part of the country really shows how our team and our sport are being recognised nationally,” said Kelsey. “I know that Weltch Media has a lot of involvement in various sports and I’m really grateful they’ve chosen to sponsor me.”
The Tigers Women begin their campaign in Super League – the top competition in the Northern Hemisphere – with a visit to St Helens on March 29th.
Last summer, Weltch Media became the official hydration partner of Devon Sharks rugby league team. For 2020, in motor sport, we have also renewed our partnership with James Holman in the Irish Legends Car Championship and in soccer we’re the player sponsor of Laura Shaw at Torquay United Women AFC.
