Redbacks are backed
REDBACKS operations manager Colin Pope can't be more grateful for the support of 25 to 30 sponsors which make his side a major player in the AFL Darling Downs competition.
The latest business to back the Redbacks is Hungry Jack's Warwick, which has negotiated a deal involving players' guernseys from 2011 to 2013.
Pope said Hungry Jack's had already sponsored training shirts for this season.
“The town of Warwick has support us enormously, some of our best support comes from businesses which have an association with other codes,” Pope said.
The Redbacks club was formed in 1996, won a B-grade premiership in its third year and has since fielded a side every season except 2000 in the Darling Downs competition.
Warwick played in 2001 and 2002 A-grade grand finals but lost both to Coolaroo and is in the top four this season.
While the majority of Redbacks players live in Warwick, Mark O'Dwyer hails from Clifton, Josh Andrews from Thanes Creek and both Nick Donges and Clinton McErvale from Stanthorpe.
