Former world rugby sevens international star Carl Murray has taken delivery of his new SEAT Tarraco sponsored car from Motor Mall Head of Sales Dave Cavanagh.
Carl said: ‘We are all delighted that Motor Mall and Jacksons have agreed to renew their sponsorship, especially with such an exciting year ahead. As well as helping me continue my work in local schools, we have some major plans after Christmas including a range of new Academies and Holiday Camps, along with our youth training for every age group at Douglas Rugby Club. If anyone would like more information they can contact me through our website at https://douglasrufciom.rfu.club/.
Dave Cavanagh was delighted to hand over the new car to Carl. ‘As a Group that only operates in island communities, and has done for over 65 years, we understand the importance of supporting the communities we live and work in. For us, there are three main areas of focus, the next generation (our islands youth), physical and mental wellbeing and community events. We support organisations, charities and good causes in these key areas, ideally ones that positively impact all three. Carl’s enthusiasm, passion and focus on helping the youth tick all our boxes and we look forward to seeing the development of the new Academies and Holiday Camps.
’Carl’s international career is inspirational and is one thing that can encourage younger people to get more active, get into sport and generally live healthier lives. In this technical age it can be very hard for parents to motivate their children to get out and be active, and that’s where selfless people like Carl can really make a huge difference.’
Having played for a number of years in the World Series for Portugal, including winning matches against the All Blacks, Australia, South Africa and England, Carl brings a unique level of experience and coaching expertise to the island through his work at Douglas Rugby Club and the wider island in general.
