Picture: Gilbert



30 years before Harry Gray was setting up in Cambridge, William Gilbert (1799-1877) was the boot and shoe maker to Rugby School. He operated from a small shop in the town at 19, High Street which was later acquired by Grays as a sports shop and still operates to this day.

By 1823, GILBERT was already supplying balls to Rugby School when William Webb Ellis first picked up and ran with the ball and the game of Rugby Football began. These early balls were larger and rounder than today's ball and could be kicked a long distance. At that time, there was no fixed shape or size as this depended on the pig's bladder used.
Gilbert have been sponsors of Hastings & Bexhill RFC since 2007 both of us have a long history in Rugby and we are looking forward to a long relationship with the club in the future.

Winner Plant

Winner Plant Hire is already well and truly living up to its name. The venture was founded in 2007 by Julian Gamble, a name familiar to many in the construction industry. Julian is the eldest son of Ian Gamble, one of the founders of Gamble Plant and Gamble Jarvis.

With over 20 years working in the family business there's not much that Julian, and his hand picked team, doesn't know about construction machinery, consequently the hire fleet has been tailored to meet the needs of both huge commercial/industrial projects right down to small building works and DIY jobs.
