The club holds several Vice President positions with the role requiring each person to welcome and host representatives from visiting teams on matchdays, as well as representing Nottingham Rugby Club in an official capacity at away fixtures as well as within its local community.
Nigel is a lifelong supporter of Nottingham Rugby Club and played within its youth system in the late 1970s and early 1980s. His attention then turned to his career in marketing in 1980 as he worked for agencies in London, Leicester and Nottingham – but carried on playing for local clubs until 2002 when he realised a long awaited ambition of having his own agency and setting up The Dairy.
Nigel’s love for his boyhood club would come full circle in 2006 when he became involved with the Archers once again – this time agreeing for The Dairy to provide pro bono marketing advice and support on an ongoing basis – a relationship which has held true ever since.
In recognition of Nigel’s service to the club over the past 40 years, he has now been named as a Vice President – something Paul Taylor, General Manager at Nottingham Rugby Club, sees as a real asset to the Archers.
“We’re delighted to be continuing our work with The Dairy. We couldn’t ask for a better organisation to be supporting us and everything they do adds real value to the club,”
He continues, “To have Nigel as a Vice President will only strengthen this relationship even further. His passion for the club is clear to everybody and he will be a fantastic addition to Nottingham Rugby. We have exciting times ahead and I have no doubt Nigel will play a big part in it.”
Nigel is equally pleased with the news and can’t wait to help shape the future direction of the club both on and off the pitch.
“Nottingham has competed well at Championship level for many years. The club has worked hard in recent times to raise its profile further, increase matchday attendances and put the foundations in place to further develop The Bay and compete at the highest level it can within the Championship,”
“We want to continue to push forward, attract the right talent and ensure we’re a financially viable club that can operate successfully both in the short and long-term. I’m excited to take on these new responsibilities as we look to forge an exciting future and I’m delighted that The Dairy is still very much a part of that journey.”
