Leicestershire Grass Roots Sponsorship
Across the county of Leicestershire, the outlook appears to be bright for grass-roots football, with support of various descriptions being offered to bolster club development.
Only last week, Harborough Town FC announced that former Premier League manager Micky Adams, who possesses experience at Leicester City, Fulham and Coventry City respectively, has joined the ranks to help nurture the Under 18’s academy team.
Now they’ve received further support, having formed a sponsorship partnership with local construction firm Mick George Ltd, who has agreed to provide both financial and service based backing that is sure to help the clubs quest to replicate success’s achieved in the not too distant past.
Currently upholding a position in the United Counties Premier Division, The Bees’ will be hoping that the additional sustenance will help them progress on their mid-table finish last campaign. As well as a presence at the clubs Bowden Park home, Mick George Ltd will also assist the thriving youth, girls, reserve and veteran representation that the club offers, on top of the first-team.
And it’s not just Harborough Town FC who will benefit from the organisastion’s generosity. Just down the road from their inaugural Leicestershire base at Ellistown, the business has also vowed too sponsor Ellistown and Ibstock United FC, in a similar vein.
After a disappointing season in the East Midlands Counties League last term, all connected with the club will be hoping that the arrangements will permit a change in fortunes.
Jon Stump, Finance Director at Mick George Ltd commented: ‘’Sponsorship of local sport and community initiatives is something that our business has proven experience in, and would always advocate. It gives us the opportunity to engage with the locals, and the chance to give something back.’’
Stump continued: ‘’We’re still very much establishing our self in Leicestershire, but hope in the near future we’re able to build connections with more and more local enterprises.’’
