***NEW SPONSOR KLAXON SOUNDS YET AGAIN***
 
Today, we are very happy to announce our main senior kit sponsor, Gallagher, who have signed up on a two year deal. 

To mark this, we have negotiated a 10% discount with our kit supplier so you can order your new kit here, by using the code "STREATHAM". Code valid until midnight on Thursday 10 March.

Arthur J. Gallagher & Co.

Welcome, it’s great to have you involved. It’s a bit of a step up from sponsoring the Gallagher Premiership, are you sure you are ready?

Ha, yes. Quite the step up. We’re confident that we can use our Rugby experience to help us become a great partner to the club.  Its nice for the firm to be learning from a more experienced outfit, we were only established in 1925 but with members of the founding family still leading the business, we are very much a business with a tight-knit family feel. Like the club! 
Tell us a little bit about yourself and your charitable efforts?

We are a global insurance brokerage and risk management service firm and have been involved with the club in a professional capacity for three years. One of the hardest things to consider when insuring the club has been the personal liability aspect.  Our main problems have centred on a few players, Raph and Sahib clearing boundaries regularly is a concern for the passing South Circular traffic and when Alf and Spencer get wound up we fear not just for the batsmen but also for how much its going to cost us.  In all seriousness, the business has been expanding its branch network in the UK in recent years and we now have nationwide coverage with a number of offices close-by in London and Surrey.  Supporting local organisations and sports clubs is a great way for us to give back to the community in a constructive way.  We are really proud that in 2021, for the tenth straight year, we’ve been recognised by Ethisphere for our commitment to doing the right thing.
So can Gallagher be useful for our members?

We are not just about big businesses, in-fact in the UK we offer a number straight forward consumer insurance products alongside business insurance and some more specialist products.  The club's members might want to consider coming to us for Home and Contents insurance be that their primary property or their holiday home, even if its thatched, we have a special service for this type of property.  We do also do motor insurance, everything from the van through the family car to the classic car.  In fact we might need to try and join forces with the ladies sponsor (soon to be announced), there could be a good market for us there.  As a broker, we work with a panel of underlying insurance companies to find the right type of cover at the best price for the customer.  We differ from the comparison sites in that we can tailor the product to the customer and cover more specialist types of insurance requirements.   

And to Michael "Foxy" Rea who was crucial to enabling this deal. A former Ireland international (pictured below) and current SMCC member, some say he’s the most stylish bat at the club, will we see him on the field this year?

You are too kind, but its been a while and I am not sure if I will be able to repeat some of my past form.  I do hope to return the field at some point this year. Sporting a Gallagher sponsored shirt, of course!
