GoFibre has become the lead sponsor of a brand-new grassroots rugby team for girls living in the Borders and North Northumberland.

The Borders Girls’ Rugby team is a brand-new team connecting girls in the Under 16 and Under 18 age grades who already play for Gala RFC, Kelso RFC, and Berwick RFC which individually do not have enough players to form competition teams.

The altnet will serve as the main kit sponsor and will also back upcoming events, matches and community initiatives.

Neil Conaghan, CEO at GoFibre, said: “This new team will give girls a chance to compete at a higher level in a sport that they love.

“By combining the rollout of cutting-edge full fibre broadband connectivity with support for local communities through sports like rugby, we can advance the growth and capabilities of local clubs, homes, and businesses.”

Specifically in the Borders, GoFibre has connected nearly 24,000 premises to its full fibre broadband network, encompassing properties in areas such as Galashiels, Kelso, Melrose, Selkirk, and Hawick.

GoFibre has also connected 12,000 premises in the North Northumberland areas of Wooler, Seahouses, Cornhill-on-Tweed, Belford, Berwick-upon-Tweed, and Alnwick.
