R&M were pleased to be asked to sponsor the New Milton Cricket Club in the 2013 season.
“R&M takes its responsibility to its environment seriously and wherever possible supports local clubs and teams with a view to enriching its immediate surrounds. New Milton Cricket Club are a local New Forest club, with its strong and thriving link to local schools making it an ideal partner for R&M” Nick Dyer- Smith (Director).
New Milton’s first team sported the new R&M Sponsored Kit whilst playing in the Southern Electric Twenty/20 Cup, going through to the third round on Sunday, beating Calmore Sports in the process.
The days play was enriched by the interruption of an Air Ambulance using the ground as a convenient landing field whilst attending a nearby accident – life playing for New Milton Club is never dull!

2012 sees the 4th year of R&M Fixings & Supports Ltd sponsoring the New Milton Cricket Club under 11’s.
Coached and Managed by Nick Dyer-Smith (R&M Fixings Director) the team has got the season off to a good – if unusual start – with their first game ending in a tie against Bashley!
On one of the rare sunny weekends of the year the eagerly anticipated New Milton V Bashley derby took place at the beautiful Fernhill Cricket ground, but despite valiant efforts of the players on both sides the final result was New Milton 76 for 7 V Bashley 76 for 4 – a Draw!
“I am very pleased with the way New Milton played, though totally surprised at the result – this is the first time I have seen a tie situation in my 30 years of playing/managing cricket!” Nick Dyer-Smith (Director).

Tags: Saints Big Bike Challenge
R&M Fixings and Supports Director – Steve Cargill – is taking on the gigantic challenge of joining the “Saints Big Bike Challenge” on the 9th of April next year (Easter Monday), involving a 85 cycle ride from St Mary’s Stadium, Southampton, to Selhurst Park – the home of Crystal Palace, to coincide with a 3pm kick off!
“As anyone who knows me will tell you, I am not world renowned for my fitness regime! But being a life-long supporter of Saints this cause is one that is very close to my heart and I am really looking forward to the challenge – saddle sores and all! I am looking to raise a whopping £1,000, so any donations, large or small are gratefully received through my Just Giving page” Steve Cargill (Director).
The cycle ride is in support of registered charities “The Saints Foundation” and their official partner “Help the Hospices”. Funds raised will directly support the operational costs of the Saints Education Centre, set up by the Saints Foundation to improve the education of young people in Southampton through literacy, numeracy and IT syllabus which supports the National Curriculum.
Funds raised will also support local hospices; Naomi House and the Countess Mountbatten Hospice Charity. From Physiotherapy and pain relief to a listening ear and home cooked meal, your local hospice does whatever it can to help seriously ill young people and adults in the local area to live well until they die. Hospice care is free for everyone who needs it, but is not free to provide.
Saints Foundation Ambassador Iwan Thomas is fully behind the event; “I would recommend the Big Bike Challenge as a great way to get fit and raise funds for three worthwhile causes. I’m aware of the great work of Saints Foundation and the two local Hospices make a huge impact to people’s lives at a difficult time for those involved. Good luck to everyone who takes part and let’s raise plenty of money!”
