3b are Proud Sponsors of Newton Stewart RFC

Stuart & Iain Barr have had a long and positive association with Newton Stewart Rugby Club with their business 3b Construction, they recently spoke to Rugby Club Magazine about their friendship with the club, “Some years ago we were approached by the club regarding potential sponsorship. Being both ex-players and rugby fans we were very impressed by the dedication of those involved at the club and felt we would like to help them a bit further than they asked and decided to finance a mini bus.

Since then, we have been regular attenders at Bladnoch Park and have enjoyed following their success over many years. As rugby club’s go Newton Stewart are a relatively new one, formed only in 1984, and one of the few clubs throughout Scotland, UK and possibly worldwide who have never tasted relegation.”

Stuart’s son Harry is a current U16’s player and Will his younger son is involved in the youth rugby set up at the club. Iain & Stuart continued, ”Youth rugby is so important for the future of any club, it’s vital that you have a conveyor belt of players coming through. Players get older and legs get tired, we can both testify to that, and with a first XV squad of only 24 players investment in youth development is essential. The service club members provide to their local community, including girls and ladies rugby, is second to none and is quite inspiring. The brand of expansive rugby the club are always trying to play is great to watch and has served them well while competing in a very tough league this season. Ourselves and all our staff at 3b Construction would like to congratulate everyone at Newton Stewart Rugby club on being recognised for their outstanding contribution to local rugby, and well deserved; wishing them all the very best of continued success for many more years to come!”
