Exol sponsored Chris Pennell stars in championship play-off final

After winning 29-28 in the first leg at Bristol’s Ashton Gate, Worcester led 16-6 at half-time with Chris Pennell on the score sheet. Bristol then took control but a penalty try and Pennell’s effort in the dying seconds of the game, converted by Ryan Lamb, made it 30-30 on the night and 59-58 on aggregate, sending the Sixways crowd into hysteria as the team sealed its promotion to the premiership.

Exol Lubricants is a long-term supporter of Worcester Warriors and the Sixways stadium features Exol branding throughout. The Exol brand, which has recently been completely redesigned, is displayed in every match-day programme and on the Worcester Warriors website It also appears on Sixways’ ‘big screen’ during team announcements.

The UK’s largest independently owned oil blender has used its sponsorship of Worcester Warriors to best effect in 2015, entertaining customers on match days and holding meetings and events at Sixways Stadium, which boasts excellent conference facilities.

Steve Everitt, Exol Lubricants managing director, said: “The championship play-off final was truly remarkable and home grown star Chris Pennell was a major factor in the club’s return to the premiership. We’re delighted to be supporting our local club and look forward to an exciting next season in the premiership.”
