Ayr Rugby are delighted to announce that local plant and fencing contractor John Marshall & Sons have extended their sponsorship of both Ayr Rugby and the Ayrshire Bulls. JMS will also adopt a player from both the Bulls and Club XV squad as their player-sponsor.


The renewed sponsorship was launched at John Marshall and Sons yard in Maidens, taking place before the introduction of tier 4 lockdown restrictions and with all participants adhering to Covid-19 (Coronavirus) protocols.

Ayr Rugby C.O.O Glen Tippett was equally positive: “We are delighted John Marshall & Sons Ltd are back onboard. They are a big company in Ayrshire and to have them commit to us during these times highlights the ambition of this club.
