Lawrence Jones and Charlie HodgsonAs the Sale Sharks look certain to host a home semi-final in the challenge for the premiership crown, they are renewing their partnership with another winning team, UKFast.Net The new 3-year agreement represents 10 years of support from the Manchester based Internet Service Provider. The two have experienced parallel success stories over time, both emerging as big players in the last few years. UKFast were named the Internet's Best Hosting Provider in 2005 shortly before the Sharks brought home the European Challenge Cup. And with the recent announcement that UKFast have retained the award for a second year, fingers are crossed for the Shark's Premiership challenge. Lawrence Jones, managing director of UKFast is confident. “The Sharks have the fittest squad in the premiership and I'm delighted to increase the relationship with not only the club, but Charlie Hodgson as an individual player,” says Jones. “There's an obvious synergy between us. Speed, reliability and teamwork have put us both on the top of our league tables. We look forward to playing a part in keeping Sale where they deserve to be - on top.” The sponsorship is worth in the region of half a million pounds and extends a hugely successful relationship. Niels de Vos, chief executive of the club is thrilled to announce the new deal. “UKFast has significantly transformed our online presence, helping us to develop as a business off the field while the team has gone from strength to strength on the pitch. UKFast is a crucial part of the club's future and I look forward to three more years at the top of our game.” For more information or to arrange an interview with Lawrence Jones, contact Jonathan Bowers (0870 421 1585)
