Football meets Rugby

J.Ellis Football are ecstatic to announce a new partnership in which we will be sponsoring Wimborne Town RFC 1st Team player & brother of proprietor James, Tim Ellis.

The partnership will be for the 2023/24 season that sees Wimborne RFC 1st Team face a new challenge as they progress through the leagues having being crowned champions of the Southern Counties League 1 season last year.

The club have two further mens teams and an ever-growing women's & girls section. Being at the heart of the market town since 1950, the club provide rugby for all ages from U6's - U18's. Whilst the stats will tell you that they are the most successful club in Dorset & Wilts, their ethos is based entirely on inclusion, encouragement and teamwork - something that resonates with the ethos of J.Ellis Football.

With over 350 registered junior members, supported by in-excess of 500 parents and over 100 volunteers, Wimborne RFC are not only a thriving club, but are a key part of the community.

James Ellis had the following remarks about this new partnership:

"To partner with such a key member of the local community is great for us as an organisation. Having been a visitor the club on many weekends watching my brother play for the 1st team, I can vouch for what a brilliant set-up they are.

I am a firm believer in multi-sport activities for young people and exposing them to different sporting opportunities to ensure they get a life-long relationship with sport. At the end of the day, if a young person is active, whether that's in football, rugby, netball, hockey or whatever sporting format - that's a win.

I'd encourage all parents of both J.Ellis Football participants and Wimborne Town Youth RFC Members to give each organisation a go".

We look forward to building on this partnership throughout the season and beyond.
