GAP Waste, GAP Organics and GAP Haulage are all proud sponsors of both Newcastle Rugby and individual players. During the 2019/2020 season we sponsored Fly-half/Full-back Brett Connon, a fantastic prospect for International honours.
This of course is the season Newcastle Falcons confirmed receipt of the Rugby Football Union’s decision to promote the club to the Gallagher Premiership for the 2020-21 season. This was rightly so considering the Falcons were 18 points clear at the top of the Greene King IPA Championship, having won all 15 of their league games, when the RFU took the decision to cancel the remainder of the season due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.
GAP Group have multiple season tickets and hospitality at many home games during the season. In addition to supporting the club and players we are also appointed as Newcastle Rugby's Waste Management Partner, for all waste streams including Plastics, Glass, Recycling, General and Food Waste.
Rob Farah was the most recent player to take advantage of GAP Group's work experience program and continues to go from strength to strength with the team.
From 2017 - 2019 GAP Group sponsored Mark Wilson. Mark's consistent stand-out performances for Newcastle Falcons is what earned him an initial call-up for England against the Barbarians, before making a long-awaited test debut in the 2-0 series win over Argentina in 2017. In 2018, Mark was selected as part of the summer tour to South Africa where he came off the bench in the second and third Tests, and proved he can hang with the best in the world. He was at it again for England in the November internationals, where staunch performances earned him Man of the Series. That form continued into the Six Nations where he featured in all of England’s games. He played in three games at the 2019 Rugby World Cup as England reached the final against South Africa. Mark agreed to join Sale Sharks on loan for the 19/20 season and will return to the Falcons for the 20/21 campaign.
