New mascot Phil is latest addition to Reds’ squad


PDJ has been providing an exceptional and competitively priced service supplying heating oil and other quality fuels to domestic homes and commercial businesses for over 50 years. PDJ also provides Boiler Maintenance Services, offering a one stop shop for all heating solutions. To celebrate this long-standing relationship with the Jersey community, they have agreed to sponsor the Jersey Reds Mascot in a three-year deal with the Jersey Rugby Club. 

Phil The Tank, who was originally introduced in 2018 to the Jersey public is the company’s mascot and the latest member to join the PDJ team. Phil The Tank will be helping kick the season off this September, starting with the game against Scarlets, taking to the pitch at each home game to cheer on The Reds and to entertain supporters in ensuring they enjoy the match to the max. 

Managing Director of the Roberts Garages Group (which includes PDJ), Ricky Davey, stated: "We are very excited to be supporting the Jersey Reds in what is a real milestone year for the company. We cannot wait to see our Phil The Tank running around the pitch cheering on Jersey’s very own rugby team.

"We felt as a Jersey business it was fitting to celebrate our 50th anniversary partnering with such an iconic institution as the Jersey Reds. For part of our 50th celebrations, we wanted to support something that was fun and was close to the heart of much of the Jersey community, and the Jersey Reds filled this desire perfectly. Like the Jersey Reds, PDJ is a Jersey household name and has an enviable following in the Island. We look forward and are proud to be working with the Jersey Reds over the next three years."

Sales and Distribution Manager, Dave Bradley added: "We like to think that we at PDJ promote a team spirit just like the Jersey Reds and just like a rugby game, our ability to deliver and meet expectations is all about team work! PDJ’s success is based on our team being able to efficiently organise ourselves to provide a first-class service and working hard to meet the high demands that our customers have come to expect of us. Our team’s skills and commitment, along with our competitive prices is what makes PDJ one of the leading fuel suppliers in Jersey."

Mark Morgan, Chairman, Jersey Reds commented: "We are excited to be forming innovative partnerships with local businesses such as PDJ who are passionate about the Club and all we do. We look forward to seeing Phil the Tank on the pitch supporting our players and delighting our supporters!"
