The North Leicestershire Football League is pleased to announce the commencement of a valuable sponsorship agreement with Uptonsteel following the completion of its arrangement with Brush Electrical Machines Ltd.
The agreement, which will run initially for three years, will help support the provision of open age Saturday football across North Leicestershire. In recognition of this, the league’s name will change to Uptonsteel North Leicestershire Football League.
Uptonsteel imports and distributes light gauge sheet metal across the UK and employs 120 staff, most of them at their Head Office and Distribution Centre in Markfield.
Commercial Manager, Kevin Walpole said, “We are proud to add the North Leicestershire Football League to our portfolio of local sporting sponsorships. Our workforce is largely recruited locally and many of our employees play for teams in the league. It is therefore an appropriate way of giving something back, both to our employees and the local community.”
Receiving the first cheque on behalf of the League, Chairman Reg Chapman & Financial Secretary, Mick Webster said, “We run the league as efficiently as possible, but cash is always very tight. This agreement will help greatly to secure the services that we provide to local clubs.”
League President, Mike Jones added “We are extremely grateful to Uptonsteel for their forward thinking in terms of sponsorship. Football is a great way of keeping fit, developing skills and making friends This sponsorship will enable us to continue providing such opportunities for local people.”
