Motor dealer gives rugby club a boost, gets one back

Swindon motor dealer Pebley Beach gave a Swindon rugby club a boost at the weekend – and its boss got one back in return.

The Suzuki and Hyundai dealership announced a major sponsorship deal with Swindon College Old Boys. And after posing for the obligatory shirt hand-over pictures, Pebley’s MD, Dominic Threlfall, was roped into a scrum and hoisted skywards in a mock line-out.

The Old Boys have enjoyed a remarkable season, being promoted to the Southern County North 1st division, and coming within a hair’s breadth of a cup final place at Twickenham.

Yet the grassroots club currently has no clubhouse – home is the Kings Hotel in Old Town – and they play at the the Nationwide Building Society stadium.

But a new ground at Wichelstowe is on the near horizon, and recent promotion means the sponsorship deal is more important than ever, according to club chairman Darren Astley.

“This is huge for us,” he said. “The investment being put into the club by Pebley Beach is very welcome.”


For Pebley Beach, the deal means the company logo emblazoned on the shirts of yet another local sports team, but also the opportunity to support another of the town’s key clubs.

“People will know that we already sponsor Swindon Town Football Club, the Swindon Robins speedway team, and the Swindon Wildcats ice hockey team, but we’re also involved with grassroots sports like the Wroughton Bowls Club,” said Dom. 

“We’re excited to be involved with Swindon College Old Boys at this exciting time, and wish them all the best in the forthcoming season.”

Pebley Beach Limited is an Appointed Representative of Automotive Compliance Ltd, who is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA No 497010). Automotive Compliance Ltd’s permissions as a Principal Firm allows Pebley Beach Limited to act as a credit broker, not as a lender, for the introduction to a limited number of lenders and to act as an agent on behalf of the insurer for insurance distribution activities only.

We can introduce you to a selected panel of lenders, which includes manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent. An introduction to a lender does not amount to independent financial advice and we act as their agent for this introduction. Our approach is to introduce you first to the manufacturer lender linked directly to the particular franchise you are purchasing your vehicle from, who are usually able to offer the best available package for you, taking into account both interest rates and other contributions. If they are unable to make you an offer of finance, we then seek to introduce you to whichever of the other lenders on our panel is able to make the next best offer of finance for you. Our aim is to secure the best deal you are eligible for from our panel of lenders. Lenders may pay a fixed commission to us for introducing you to them, calculated by reference to the vehicle model or amount you borrow. Different lenders may pay different commissions for such introductions, and manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent may also provide preferential rates to us for the funding of our vehicle stock and also provide financial support for our training and marketing. But any such amounts they and other lenders pay us will not affect the amounts you pay under your finance agreement, all of which are set by the lender concerned. If you ask us what the amount of commission is, we will tell you in good time before the Finance agreement is executed. All finance applications are subject to status, terms and conditions apply, UK residents only, 18’s or over. Guarantees may be required.
