Building materials supplier, Southern Sheeting, is celebrating 11 years of support for grassroots football team, East Grinstead Town Football Club.
Southern Sheeting is one of the longest standing sponsors of the club. COVID-19 had a devastating impact on children’s football with many clubs forced to close. Now, thanks to Southern Sheeting, East Grinstead Town FC has a brand new under 8’s team. The team will be wearing the Southern Sheeting-sponsored kit during their first season. Southern Sheeting’s sponsorship money will also go towards buying new football equipment and running the club.
Tony Hobbs, managing director of Southern Sheeting, said: “As an East Grinstead-based company, we want do our bit for the community and support the local club; and it’s great to be able to help The Wasps in its initiative to get boys and girls back onto the pitch, doing exercise and playing the sport they love with their friends.”
Richard Tramontin, chairman of East Grinstead Town Football Club said: “Local football has had an extremely tough time recently, so we’re delighted that Southern Sheeting is continuing to support us. Like everyone else, we experienced a devastating drop in visitors and revenue as a result of the pandemic.”
Hobbs added: “We’ve supplied building materials for major stadia redevelopments all around the country, including for Salford FC, so football is very close to our hearts.
“It gives all of us at Southern Sheeting a real buzz to know we’re doing our bit to bring a bit of happiness and support to Wasps fans and players.”
