Minster Micro Computers team up with Worcester Warriors Rugby Player Ryan Mills

Ryan Mills MinsterMinster are proud to announce that they have signed a sponsorship deal to support Worcestershire Warriors Rugby player, Ryan Mills, over the 2015/2016 season.

As part of our approach to local business initiatives, we have opted to take a fresh look and review how we could support their local community.

A sponsorship first, Minster Director Nick Marlow explained:  “Minster continues to experience positive business growth, which in turn has enabled our team to support many more local and regional community and charitable organisations.

“After much deliberation and looking at a range of local sponsorship opportunities, we decided on Worcester Warriors and Ryan Mills due to the clubs’ business synergy and Ryan’s positive personality both on and off the pitch which is a great example for young players looking to establish themselves in the sport.”

Mills joined Worcester Warriors in the summer of 2014 from Gloucester, proving to be a strong team player and helping the club to regain premiership status. Warriors continue to build, investing in ground refurbishments and are firmly establishing themselves as a successful Aviva Premiership club.

Ryan Mills commented: “We’ve been really pleased with our start to the season and we have been competitive in every game. It’s a fantastic time for Minster to be supporting the Club and I am looking forward to seeing them at our games this season.”
