Southport RFC and EFT Group are delighted to announce that they have agreed a four year partnership which will see the EFT Group become, from September 2018, the main front of shirt sponsor on the playing shirts of all 500 playing members of the Club. EFT Group is also committed to working with SRFC to provide local development and, where possible, employment opportunities for interested and qualified senior playing members of the Club.

Commenting on the new partnership, Adam Watts, CEO of EFT Group said;

“In my younger days I had the pleasure of playing for Southport RFC and know from personal experience what a great Community Club it is. I am delighted to see the Club being so successful at all levels on the pitch, and off the pitch. The importance of Community, the determination to succeed and grow are values that EFT Group and SRFC share and it is a pleasure to be able to partner with the Club at this exciting time. We look forward to working together to ensure our continued mutual success.”

Steve Olive, Chairman Southport RFC commented

“We pride ourselves on being a successful local Community Club, so it is
great that we have been able to conclude this four year partnership with EFT
Group, a local business success story led by Adam Watts a current member and
past SRFC player. We are delighted that EFT Group are committed to working with the Club to offer real 'off the pitch' development opportunities for our young players.

EFT Group will be taking over, in September 2018, from Nationwide, as the main front of playing shirt sponsor. Nationwide have been the main shirt sponsor for many years, and the Club extends its thanks and appreciation to Nationwide for the fantastic support they have given the Club over the years.”
