Here at PERSAS, we’re big believers in supporting our local community, which is why we are so proud to be sponsoring The Greyhounds- Singleton Senior Rugby League Club!
The Greyhounds won their minor semi-finals on Saturday 24 August by a big 38 – 4. We couldn’t be more proud and we can’t believe how quickly the season has gone.
Supporting the local community
Originally a Singleton local, Brett, our Managing Director, is still heavily involved in supporting sport in the community.
Having coached some of the first-grade team boys when they were younger, Brett’s been an active supporter of them throughout the duration of their football journey. This year, PERSAS offered to assist with jerseys and signage.
President of the local rugby league club, Jye Bayley, said he’s extremely grateful for our commitment to the team.
“PERSAS go above and beyond – they’re more than a just a sponsor,” Jye said.
“On top of the jerseys and signage, we have Brett offering further support if we need it. And he’s given up his time too to coach the boys. In fact, I credit him for the great team we have today.
“His commitment to the boys and his willingness to have a chat on the phone whenever they need it, is a big motivator for the team to continue playing. And his focus on remaining community-minded has kept a lot of our players here, supporting Singleton football just like Brett does,” he said.
Jye also emphasised the importance of sponsors like PERSAS, who are actively participating in the club.
Active participation goes a long way
“Brett’s involvement means he knows a lot of the boys personally. It allows our players to make mates in the industries that they may one day work in. They can meet contacts and it open avenues for them, creating real job opportunities, all thanks to businesses that want to get involved,” Jye said.
The effects of supporting local sport goes beyond just the club.
“Rugby league is one of the most popular sports, so people really get around it. It’s a small town, so our games really bring the community together. Everyone’s excited for a Greyhounds match, especially when we’re winning like this. Our sponsors mean the club can continue to survive, so businesses like PERSAS mean a lot to Singleton as a whole,” he said.
“I can’t thank Brett and the team at PERSAS enough. The time and resources they invest in the club really mean a lot to us,” Jye concluded.
