Independent building merchant sponsors local children’s football club

Sovini Trade Supplies, proudly part of The Sovini Group, have sponsored Merseyside’s children’s football club The Eight FC.

The Eight FC was launched by local parents for local children to support their children’s health and wellbeing.

Sovini Trade Supplies are a North-West merchant supplying goods to the repairs & maintenance, newbuild and general construction sectors. They provide bespoke managed stores and capital investment services to several key social housing clients along with a full merchant offer to support newbuild and the wider construction industry.

Sovini Trade Supplies are delighted to be sponsoring the talented and enthusiastic team, as they too promote health and wellbeing for their colleagues, customers, and communities alike.

The sponsorship deal follows in the footsteps of the merchant’s community development programme, which encourages community collaboration across Sovini Trade Supplies North West branches in Bootle, Speke, Ellesmere Port and Eccles.

Andy Keouski, Distribution Centre Manager at Sovini Trade Supplies Bootle branch, has a son who recently started playing for the team: “I am proud to be part of a business that are forthcoming in contributing to the local community. I became aware that the team had no sponsorship and asked if Sovini Trade Supplies community development programme could help. They kindly agreed to supply a brand new kit for the kids.”

Mateusz Zawadzki, manager, and coach at The Eight FC is thankful for the support. He said: “The team proudly wear the kits. They bring a sense of team spirit. As a manager and coach, I’m grateful that all players have matching kits and can focus on developing their skills during matches.”

The local team who competes in Croxteth’s under 9’s league and now have ambitious plans to take part in several football tournaments to the end of the season.

Alan Evans, Director of Operations at Sovini Trade Supplies is passionate about supporting local initiatives in line with the Group’s ethos.  He said: We’re proud to sponsor The Eight FC football team. We believe doing good is good business and as a Group we focus on investing our profits back into the local community. It’s great to see the team proudly wearing their new kits with the Sovini Trade Supplies logo. We look forward to seeing their successes in future.”
