Thornhill Trojans win National Cup!

Longley Group has been a long standing sponsor of local rugby team Thornhill Trojans and were proud to see the local team win the Xaman BARLA National Cup at the end of May. The Trojans played Myton Warriors at Featherstone to win the national Cup, winning 17 – 14.

Not only do Longley Group sponsor the Trojans, two of the team work for the business! George Stott (centre) and Wayne Loney (assistant coach) both work in the factory at the Dewsbury site.

Finance Director John Longley commented β€œIt’s always good to show support for local teams, but the Thornhill Trojans are especially important to Longley Group and to me personally, having grown up in Thornhill. The team played exceptionally well and deserved the win. We look forward to continuing our support of the Trojans and to their ongoing success.”
