KEIGHLEY-based firm Clever Energy Boilers has confirmed it has renewed its sponsorship of the Keighley Cougars for the 2018 season.

The announcement means the company has so far been committed to the Cougars for five years.

The sponsorship package is specifically tailored to the business's needs.

It has enabled the supporters bar to be named the "Clever Energy Boilers Hall of Fame". It also gives the company rights to sponsor one of the Cougars new major signings, Benn Hardcastle, as well as rights for match day sponsorships.

Gary Fawcett, chairman at the Cougars, said: "Sponsorship is a critical part of the club's income.

"The more income the club has the better the product it can put on the field, the greater success it will achieve for the town and Clever Energy's sponsorship supports this."

Paul Calvert, director at Clever Energy Boilers, said: "We're pleased and proud to renew our sponsorship with Keighley Cougars.

"As a Keighley-based company we believe in the potential of the town and the potential of the club. Our continuing sponsorship reflects that belief."
