Johnstone’s Trade announces sponsorship of Leeds Rhinos

Women and England International Caitlin Beevers

Johnstone’s Trade has announced that it is the official paint partner of the Leeds Rhinos Rugby Club for the fifth consecutive season.

As well as being the club’s official paint partner, the Yorkshire-based paint manufacturer has also revealed that, new for 2023, it will be the proud sponsor of Leeds Rhinos Women and England International player Caitlin Beevers.

Caitlin was born in Dewsbury, West Yorkshire, which is close to PPG’s head offices, and works at PPG as a production administrator. After starting her club level career with Birstall Victoria ARLFC as a seven-year-old until she was 12, Caitlin then took a year out to concentrate on the refereeing side of Rugby League and became the first female to referee a Rugby League game at Wembley in 2018.

Caitlin returned to the game aged 13 to play for Dewsbury Moor ARLFC until she was recruited by Leeds Rhinos Women for the under-19 academy at the age of 16 in January 2018, before being promoted to the first team for the 2018 Women’s Super League season. Her career continued to go from strength to strength in 2022 when she had the honour of playing in the Women’s Rugby League World Cup, delayed from 2021.

Sarah Clough, PPG customer loyalty manager, said: “We’re proud to continue our partnership with Leeds Rhinos for another season. We’ve strengthened our relationship over the past five years, and we’re pleased that we’ve been able to support the work it does within our local community.

“Everyone at PPG is so proud of Caitlin. At just 21 years old, she’s already achieved so much in her sporting career, including currently being the player with the most appearances for Leeds Rhinos Women, and we’re all really excited to watch her play, cheer her on and celebrate her inevitable future achievements.

“We’re looking forward to the first home game of the season on Friday 24th February and wish Caitlin and the teams all the best for 2023!”
