Stewart’s Melville Supported by Leading Capital Company
One of the traditional Edinburgh rugby powerhouses, Stewart’s Melville have experienced tricky times over the past couple of season but the club’s infrastructure off the pitch remains as strong as ever, down in no small part to their club sponsorship with DJ Alexander Legal.
The capital-based Solicitors and Estate Agents this year linked up with the Inverleith club as one of their chief backers, a move that Chairman Colin Rigby described as exciting: “We are delighted to have DJ Alexander Legal involved in supporting Stewart’s Melville. They have endorsed our ambition to become one of the leading clubs not only in Edinburgh but indeed Scotland. This welcome association will help us deliver results on the field as well as supporting off-field activities such as delivering first class kit and equipment, proven medical resources and our new age-grade academy, for which we are very excited.” Bruce Ruthven, the club’s Head Coach, echoed the sentiments of Colin and added: “I am pleased to see DJ Alexander Legal on board. This is a significant partnership for the club, one the team are keen to support and recognise the wider benefits of.”
Stewart’s Melville face two crucial home matches before the year is out. After early season victories over Howe of Fife and Peebles gave them valuable points on the BT National 1 board, a difficult run of results has left the club needing to fight to remain competitive in the second half of the campaign. On Saturday December 5 they host Peebles at Inverleith with a 2pm kick-off, with a two course lunch and entry included for only £20 per person. In a similar vein, Stewart’s Melville welcome city rivals Watsonians on Saturday December 19 and for the same price, will offer entry plus a two course Christmas lunch to get you in the festive mood.
Together with the help of the sponsorship afforded by DJ Alexander Legal, Stewart’s Melville hope that their rugby season really kicks off as we approach and then roll into 2016.
