TIS are continuing with their commitment to invest in the local community by providing new kit sponsorship to local football team Sherwood Colliery YFC U12s.
Sherwood Colliery is a Charter Standard Football Club that plays in Division 2 of the Chad Mansfield Youth League.
Sponsorship is a recent introduction for the company and this is TIS’ second sports team sponsorship in the last 6 months.
Shaun Brown of Sherwood Colliery YFC contacted TIS staff member Chris Mills last year enquiring about sponsorship, and comments “We like to get involved because we think it’s important to create strong links with the local community. As a company, we are very committed and focused on supporting various initiatives. Being located near Nottingham, we have a strong connection with the area, so wanted to do our bit and support a local and much-loved sport for people of all ages.”
In keeping with the team’s black and blue themed kit, the TIS logo coordinated perfectly and has pride of place on the front of the team shirts and the back of their training jackets.
Shaun Brown from Sherwood Colliery U12s commented â€œAs we have just set up we had no idea what was involved or how we could afford any new kit or equipment. We had to beg and borrow hand me down kits and equipment from other teams just to play a match.
We have 13 children in our squad who play in the Chad Youth League which sees us play weekly matches in towns and village across Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire. Although we are not doing as well as we would like at the moment the boys really enjoy playing the game and being part of a team who, thanks to the generosity of TIS, now look like a team.
Thank you so much to TIS. Myself, the parents and the whole team are truly thankful for your kind generosity in providing us with a fantastic team kit and rain jackets. We now look and feel like a real football team.â€
At TIS we wish the team all the best for the remaining games of the season.
