I feel it will be a good fit for both parties and that we will work together over the next eighteen months.
“Active Workwear will be providing hoodies for the playing squads, coaches and managements of Lancashire and Yorkshire Ladies beginning with this year’s WRLA County of Origin game, and it helps to make all those involved in the Origin game feel that they are special being involved with their respective counties”.
