Here at Foremost Security, we are proud to announce that we are the official sponsor of Shardlow St James Under 13’s Football Club.
Established in 1880, Shardlow St James Football Club is one of the oldest amateur football teams in the country, they constantly work hard to develop players through regular training and tournaments. The Under 13’s were initially involved with another club, but have moved this summer to join Shardlow St James Football Club. As a new team to Shardlow they required a new home and away kit to play in. We wanted to remain involved with Shardlow St James FC which will be our 3rd season on sponsorship and agreed to buy the away kit for this new Under 13’s team.
Our Sales and Marketing Director, Matt Prince, at Foremost Security is a long-time player and supporter of Shardlow St James. Matt first started playing football for Shardlow St James FC aged 16 and has reflected on how the team’s morale and a fans experience can be boosted with the likes of a new, sponsored kit. He also knows how hard it can be for clubs to gain sponsorship – especially post-lockdown. As a business, Foremost Security have been quite fortunate and they wanted to give back to a local community.
The reason they decided to sponsor the Under 13’s this season, was because the Shardlow St James Veterans Football teams, who Foremost already sponsor, were not in need of new kits this season. So, Foremost decided to support the youngsters this season.
Foremost Security will still remain as the shirt sponsor for the Veterans first and reserve team. We will continue to commit our support to Shardlow St James for many years to come.
The Under 13’s have slightly different seasons at their age, they don’t typically play September to April, but have smaller leagues throughout Summer and Winter.
