Speedclad sponsorship scores smiles all round with local football club
Speedclad is into its second season sponsoring the Under 9's Blues team of Thirsk Falcons Juniors Football Club and we're thoroughly enjoying getting involved!
The Thirsk Falcons Junior Football Club is local to Speedclad's Head Office in Northallerton and is a fantastic supportive and enthusiastic chartered standard FA club, part of the North Ridings FA, running numerous teams in age ranges from 3 (the 'Fledglings') to Under 18's. Speedclad starting sponsorship of the Under 8's Blues in the 2015/2016 season and have continued this support as they moved to the Under 9's this season.
We get so much from our involvement with this club, our Pre-Construction Administrator is their utterly dedicated coach so we hear all about their progress and activities and, when the team received their new kit bags recently the thank you letter (pictured right), penned without prompting, absolutely made our day!
We cheered the team on this weekend as they stormed to victory in a league match and were thrilled when they presented us with their printed Thank You card. Our Commercial Director even found a new role as ball boy chasing footballs over fences and fields and made the team's day by shaking each player's hand in turn at the end of the match.
We would urge anyone thinking of sponsorship or volunteering with a local community club to get involved!
