Trophies Visit Typhoo

SAINTS stars Jon Wilkin, Tommy Makinson and Adam Swift swapped their gum shields for hair-nets when they visited the Wirral factory of tea giants and Saints main shirt partner Typhoo.

They were given a tour of the Moreton factory, where they posed for photographs with staff alongside the Super League Trophy and League Leaders’ Shield.

It was part of a whistle-stop tour to celebrate their continued partnership with Typhoo – who have sponsored the Saints since 2012.

After sharing their thoughts for the upcoming Super League season with Typhoo bosses, the Saints players were taken around the factory, which employs 270 staff and boasts 11 different brands.
The partnership between Typhoo and Saints continues to develop as they shape their plans for the coming years, with both hoping to help the other in their goals to being the rugby league team and tea of choice for Merseyside.

Saints winning the Super League Grand Final this year was an amazing thing to witness and a great boost for Typhoo, whose partnership coincided with Saints’ move to Langtree Park in 2012.

Their logo will continue to feature across the front of all St Helens shirts and Trainingwear until 2016.

Dave Hutchinson, Head of Sales and Marketing at the club, said: “St.Helens R.F.C. and Typhoo’s relationship is going from strength to strength during 2014, and the launch earlier this year of Typhoo Gold was definitely been a lucky omen.

“Having Typhoo as our main club sponsors means a lot, having shown their loyalty and commitment by renewing their partnership for a further three years, this keeps one of the leading hot beverage producers in the UK in the spotlight through all the exposure that the most successful team in the modern era of Super League brings.

“We are both household names, local to the north west, innovative and leading the way in our own market places, and the club are very grateful for Typhoo’s continued support.”
