EcoCooling is proud to announce its sponsorship of Bury St Edmunds Rugby player, Alessandro (Alex) Leo.

It is Alex’s first year with the club and it’s been brilliant season so far, with the team yet to lose a home game. Alex joined as an accomplished back row forward, who has formerly played for Bishops Stortford, Ealing Trailfinders and Wasps Senior Academy. Currently cutting his teeth in the second row, Alex has settled in well, being part of the starting fifteen most games. Outside of rugby, Alex is a Firefighter and professional boxing coach, both of which provide him with transferable skills that help on the rugby field.

The company’s sponsorship pays for Alex’s kit, travel and expenses, which is a huge help for a Pro-Am player. In addition to sponsoring a player, EcoCooling sponsors shirts 4 and 14, which means if the player wearing that number scores during a game, colleagues of the company get free drinks in the clubhouse.

On receiving his sponsorship, Alex said, “I am really grateful to EcoCooling for its sponsorship as it will massively help me out in my first season with the team. Having the support of a local business such as EcoCooling is particularly great for me as I know how integrated the club is with the local community.”

Joseph Hodson, Sales Manager at EcoCooling, who plays for Bury’s Wolves and Rovers teams is pleased to be able to support a first team club mate and said, “It’s brilliant to be able to sponsor a player like Alex, as I know the difference this type of support makes. I and the rest of the EcoCooling team are looking forward to following his and the clubs progress throughout the rest of the season. We’ll also be at some upcoming matches to support Alex in person.”
