Congratulations to Whittle client Saracens Rugby team who took their second succession European Champions Cup, beating Clermont Auvergne 28-17.
No team since Leicester in the beginning of the 2000s have won back to back cups, so this is a fantastic achievement.
Saracens became a customer of Whittle in 2016, opting to take a 6 year maintenance programme on the East Stand and one of the largest sporting bars in world rugby at 110m long (click here to read more).
The programme and association is for 6 years – who knows what further success lies ahead during that time!
Commiserations to our other client Tranmere Rovers who did not quite get over the line at Wembley, losing 3-1 to Forest Green Rovers in the National League play offs. Rovers played brilliantly during the regular season narrowly finishing second to Lincoln, so we are sure they will be back next year.
