Club’s women footballers thank sponsors
With all games called off, Sandbach United Girls’ and women’s football teams took the opportunity to thank their sponsors.
Following a successful SSE Wildcats programme, Sandbach United has two new under-nines girls teams playing in the Cheshire Girls’ League.
Sandbach United U9 Eagles thanked Mark Tarry, director of insurance and pension advisers Haven Global Strategies, who has bought new training tops, as well as sponsoring the club with two banners around the first team’s pitch.
Sandbach United U9s thanked independent family-run Italian restaurant Barchetta for providing players with new training kit.
A spokesman for Barchetta said: “As a local business we wanted to support the great work of Sandbach United with girls’ football. It’s the country’s fastest growing sport and a brilliant opportunity for Sandbach’s girls to have fun, keep fit and make new friends.”
Sandbach ladies’ first team has been very lucky this season with two sponsors helping the players out.
Italian restaurant Casa Mia has sponsored the team and as a way of saying thank you, the girls had a meal there over the Christmas period.
Casa Mia owner Lello Possente said: “As a locally run business we wanted to sponsor the ladies open age team as we have many friends at the club and love the family, community spirit of Sandbach United.”
The other main sponsor for the ladies’ first team and club is Sandbach Physiotherapy, which has been involved with the club and first team for many years. It has bought the girls’ tracksuit tops and bottoms, so that they arrive at games and training sessions looking smart.
Sandbach Physiotherapy’s Stephen and Bernadette Oakes said: “As a local business, Sandbach Physiotherapy Clinic is delighted to continue its support of Sandbach United Open age Ladies team and we wish them well for the rest of the season.”
The club also thanked the local Co-op and Waitrose stores for their continued support.
A spokesman for the club said: “Girls’ football is growing so fast. It is exciting times. We now have 10 teams ranging from U7s all the way through to open age. If your daughter would like to come and have a go at football, please contact Liz Clark by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or contact the club direct.”
