RUGBY legend Lee Dickson touched down at a one-off open day hosted by the SIG Roofing Northampton branch last week.
Fans of the ex-English Rugby Union star were able to take part in a meet and greet with lee, who currently plays scrumhalf for Bedford Blues. The sporting hero’s visit to the recently refurbished roofing supplier, located on Millbrook Close, kept customers’ spirits up as they braved the freezing temperatures experienced across Northampton during the week.
Lee said, “The fans in Northampton have always been so supportive of me and the club. The day was a great opportunity to get out and meet those that have cheered me on from the stands for years.
“I’m no stranger to working outside but I don’t envy these guys day in day out working outdoors in these freezing temperatures and they still had a smile on their faces when they came through the door.”
During the event, the Northampton Saints star met with local roofers and signed their beloved Saints shirts and memorabilia. Visitors were treated to breakfast and warming refreshments to set them off for the day, as well as a whole host of special offers on products in branch.
Branch manager, Michael Crouch, commented: “Northampton has always been a rugby town and our customers are proud supporters of their local club, that’s why the event was a great opportunity to thank them for supporting our branch and giving them the opportunity to meet one of their sporting heroes.”
