Rocks new sponsor just can’t wait for new season to start

Next season their company will be a constant presence everywhere the Rocks go.


And new club sponsor Dominic Reynolds said he cannot wait to see the side that manager Jack Pearce is building at Nyewood Lane take to the pitch next month.


Reynolds, who is the managing director of Reynolds Furniture, has been chairman of the club for the past 12 years.


And, after his businesses name won the auction to be the Rocks main sponsor for the upcoming Bostik Premier season, he said there was every reason to be brimming with confidence going in to the new campaign.


Reynolds’ confidence comes as Pearce made a number of important signings so far over the summer including recruiting striker Dan Smith and midfielder Freddie Read from Pompey while fans’ favourite Stu Green is returning to Nyewood Lane from AFC Totton.


He said: “It was great to see the Rocks win the Sussex Senior Cup last season and we hope to build on that success.


“Jack and Robbie seem to have done a lot of early business in terms of bringing players to the club as well as keeping key players, the likes of Jimmy Muitt, Doug Tuck and Harvey Whyte, so there are lots of reasons to go into the campaign with a degree of optimism, perhaps – dare I say it – even confidence.”


The chance for Reynolds Furniture to bid for the sponsorship arose when businessmen Victor Coutin, the MD at GardX, donated the prize back to the Nye Camp outfit after he won it in the sponsors’ draw.


Reynolds said: “As a company we are absolutely delighted to be the main sponsors for the forthcoming season.


“We very much look forward to a successful relationship both on and off the pitch. On a personal level, and as a long-standing fan, I am really excited by the prospect of the new season with our new signings.”


Reynolds Furniture and the Nyewood Lane outfit are no strangers with the 152-year-old business a long-time backer of the club.


The firm first had their names emblazoned on the team’s shirts a quarter of a century ago – something that Reynolds remembers fondly.


He said: “We have a photo of me, my dad and my brothers with the team when we were shirt sponsors for the first time 25 years ago. Now we can look forward to a new team picture with our branding on the shirts and we’re really chuffed.”
