Ross Juniors Football Shirt Sponsorship
Being a family run business, we know how much difference the support of the local community can make. That’s why when asked if we would consider sponsoring new shirts for the Ross Juniors Football Club, we were keen to get involved. Our long-term sales person and delivery driver, Haydn, has coached the team in his spare time for 7 years, and we were happy to have the opportunity to support his passion for the club and show our encouragement for local sport by providing new football shirts for the Under 14s team.
We spoke to Keith Warner, the manager of Ross Juniors Football Club, who explained why the new kits is so important. He said: ‘The boys pay £30 a year, plus £2 at every training session, and £3 at every game. This soon adds up and increasing player subs runs the risk of dissuading potential footballers, though the club does have a hardship scheme to support those that can't afford these fees. Still, these fees do not cover all of the costs of the club. All managers, coaches and committee are volunteers, but upkeep of the sports centre and the pitches, renting all weather, floodlit pitches for winter training, and provision of kits and equipment is very expensive. Only with the kind sponsorship of local businesses is all of this possible. Our team currently plays in a mish-mash of second hand kit, and in providing one matching kit for all players will bring added pride to the boys.’
We value the importance of children being part of a local sports team and we are excited to have the opportunity to show our support for the great work that the club does.
Team coach Haydn has worked for Saymor for 7 years and has been a much-valued member of staff. He has been coaching the group of boys since they were 6 years old, and has enjoyed watching them grow and progress: ‘I originally got involved with coaching through my son. I enjoyed watching him play and made the decision to train as a coach. I love being involved with the kids and seeing them get enjoyment out of playing. When the old kit was reaching the end of its life, I thought it was the perfect time for Saymor to get involved, and they were keen to provide sponsorship’.
Saymor Managing Director, David, is delighted to support the team. He said: 'It’s great to have the opportunity to support a local team and Haydn in his passion for football which we know he loves. We wish the team success in their games this season'.
We hope the boys enjoy playing in their new shirts and we wish them the best of luck.
