Go Sharks!

Clapton is god

Web Applications UK is now a proud sponsor of the Sale Sharks, an English professional rugby union club who play in the Aviva Premiership!

As a company, we’re keen to support our local community so this is not our first sponsorship of a sports team. Last October we unveiled our banner at the Oldham Athletic ground, Boundary Park. Over the years we have sponsored various football teams, charity golf tournaments and now a rugby union club.

The traditionally black and white banner was unveiled last week at Salford City Stadium, spreading the word of WAUKCE across Greater Manchester. If you were at the Sharks v Saracens match on Saturday then you may have been lucky enough to spot it! For those of you who weren’t, here’s a sneak preview of the banner:

In line with the quirky, cheeky character of Web Applications UK and our Centre of Excellence, we also sponsor the sin bin. So we will be shouting “send him off!” at every opportunity to get a mention by the commentators!

Following the sponsorship deal, we are now members of the Sale Sharks Premier Business Club. Last week a few of our directors went along to the first networking event of the season where they met some of the players and management team. To name drop just a few; Viv excitedly spoke to Mark Cueto, they mingled with Danny Cipriani and had their photo taken with Richie Gray.

With the sterling efforts and improved performance seen on Saturday, the Sale Sharks look set to have a great season this year and we’ll be there cheering them all the way!
