Roadgas is the UK’s leading supplier of compressed natural gas and biomethane refuelling station infrastructure and will be working with the club to develop a grassroots female community rugby programme over the coming months.

The Colwick-based firm work with both the public and private sectors to provide a complete supply solution that meets the bespoke needs of small, medium and large transport operators throughout the country looking to decarbonise their fleets.

Designing, building, installing and maintaining gas refuelling equipment – with CNG from the
National Grid to LCNG, LNG (including biomethane) and hydrogen – Roadgas ensure refuelling
stations are fully operational 24/7.

Steve Smith, Nottingham Rugby’s Chief Operating Officer, said: “It’s great to have Roadgas join the growing number of sponsors at Nottingham Rugby and we thank them for their support in what is a new program for us.”

David Rix, Managing Director, added: “We are all extremely excited to develop a female rugby
programme in our region which will see rugby being played in a number of our local schools. 
 
There is also the development of several one day tag & mini rugby festivals for the girls to participate in.

We hope to see the festivals played in conjunction with other local established clubs.”
Jon Harman, Operations Director, agrees: “Roadgas is delighted to have the opportunity to support two girls’ and women days as part of the usual Nottingham Rugby home fixtures as well as sponsoring the girls’ Varsity game in May 2020. We plan to be on the sidelines every Friday.”
 
In another exciting development, Nottingham Rugby will be working alongside Loughborough
Lightning. The Women’s Rugby franchise is currently playing in the Tyrells Premiership, and the
partnership will help raise local player’s aspirations whilst also offering opportunities to watch
Lightning in their home games.

Women’s rugby has exploded in England over the past five to ten years and both organisations are excited to be playing their part in growing the game yet further.
