EYS back on the shirt for 2017

Long-term club sponsor East Yorkshire Shutters will make a return to the Hull Kingston Rovers home and away shirts next season after once again becoming a kit sponsor with the Robins.

The Hull-based business specialises in the installation and maintenance of physical security products and is a long-standing supporter of the club, taking up both player and matchday sponsorships in recent years.

However, after two seasons away from the shirt, the family-run firm has agreed to return to the Rovers home and away kits next season and will revert to its previous position as the back of collar sponsor.

James Puplett, Managing Director at East Yorkshire Shutters, said: “We’ve always been proud to be a part of the Hull Kingston Rovers family and now feels like the right time to take up sponsorship on the shirt once more.

“We’ve grown rapidly as a business since our partnership with Rovers first began but next season feels like a fresh start for everybody connected to the club, ourselves included.

“We were planning on coming back on board the shirt regardless but it’s important now that sponsors continue to back the club and we’re looking forward to a successful season in 2017.”

East Yorkshire Shutters are a local firm which operates up and down the country providing the likes of roller shutters, industrial and garage doors, automatic gates, steel fire exit doors and security grilles.

As well as installation, the business offers a full customer service package tailored to each client’s needs, including servicing and follow up appointments, leading to an enviable reputation for quality and price.

Hull KR’s Head of Commercial, Joe Clutterbrook, said: “Having previously been a regular back of collar sponsor with the club, I’m delighted to welcome East Yorkshire Shutters back onto our kits next season and we thank them for their continued support.

“Although they have focused on other commercial opportunities within the club over the past couple of years, EYS remain one of our long-term partners and they’ll be back where they belong on our home and away shirts in 2017.”
