Sponsor | Sparta Lightning Services sponsor three players for 2019

Salford Red Devils are delighted to confirm that Sparta Lightning Services will remain as the player sponsors of Ben Nakubuwai, Mark Flanagan and Ed Chamberlain for the 2019 season.
Sparta Lightning Services – a Salford-based business who employ Salfordians in their work force – proudly sponsored all three players throughout the 2018 season and will continue to partner the Club going forward.
Vince Keenan, Owner of Sparta Lightning Services, said: “After meeting with the Club and getting an insight into how they want to move forward we were more than happy to offer our services
“As my company installs lightning protection systems on buildings the ideal first player to sponsor was Mark ‘Flash’ Flanagan.
“He’s been a model professional since joining the Club and the hard work that he has put in will surely rub off on the younger players. He is one of the more senior players in the squad and has become an integral part of the team at Salford and we’re proud to sponsor him.
Sparta Lightning Services will also sponsor Fijian international Ben Nakubuwai and Ed Chamberlain again for the 2019 season.
Vince Keenan said: “We are delighted to be sponsoring Ben again this season. He’s a big strong running prop-forward and he’s fitted into the team brilliantly since arriving last season.
“I can see Ben reaching new levels this coming season and hopefully he’ll find himself on the scoresheet more as he’s acclimatised to the weather in Salford!
“Ed Chamberlain is another great young player that the Club signed midway through the season. When he came to the Club, I didn’t know much about him or what to expect but I can honestly say I haven’t seen a player fit into the side so well for a long time.
“After seeing him play it was an easy decision to sponsor him. He’s a fantastic goal kicker as well which was massive for the team at the backend of the season and he was brilliant in both attack and defence.
“As a company, we are looking forward to the 2019 season and what it will bring. I love hearing the Salford Reds are rising and the buzz around the Club, players and fans has been lifted with the hard work everyone is doing behind the scenes.”
Salford Red Devils Director of Rugby and Operations, Ian Blease, said: “We’re delighted to have Sparta Lightning Services on board as player sponsors again for the 2019 season.
“They were big supporters of the Club last season sponsoring Mark Flanagan and Ben Nakubuwai from the off and picked up Ed Chamberlain as soon as he came to the Club.
“It’s great to retain sponsorships such as Sparta Lightning Services as we build to the 2019 season and we hope they enjoy the season as proud player sponsors at Salford Red Devils.”
