Alton based packaging machinery experts, Engelmann & Buckham Limited (E&B), are the sponsors of Alton Football Club’s Girls Under 14s, or ‘The Warriors’ – as they are known locally. The squad recently took delivery of new football shirts and shorts and are now ready to take on other local teams. E&B are delighted to offer their support to this up and coming team and will follow their progress over the season.
Iain Buckham, chairman E&B, “We have been a part of the Alton community since 1949 and are happy to be able to support the girls with new kit. We wish them every success for the rest of the season.”
The girls are training hard and building on a promotion from last season. Aleks Lloyd, team manager, is appreciative for the support that will help to motivate the girls to do well over the season. “We are so grateful for the amazing support of Engelmann and Buckham, who have helped kit the squad out in pristine new white shirts and black shorts. The team are making great strides in the Surrey County Women’s and Girls league division 2 having been promoted last season. The development team in the Hampshire Girls Youth Football League have come on in leaps and bounds learning how to play the game.”
Football is really important to all the dedicated girls in the squad and the sponsorship has united the squad, “Most importantly the sponsorship of the teams means that the girls all feel part of the same squad. It makes it much easier for them to enjoy themselves and make friends for life both on and off the field. Having the support of Engelmann and Buckham is vital in making this happen.”
