Three local companies have all pitched in to sponsor Accrington Stanley Community Trust’s Football College Teams for the 2023/24 Season.
Altham-based Readstone Construction, Nelson-based Ainsworths Accountants and Burnley-based Thorne Fire & Security have each become a front of shirt sponsor on the three teams.
The teams will represent Accrington Stanley Community Trust in the National Youth Alliance and CEFA Leagues, playing against the likes of Manchester United and Manchester City.
Martin Fearon, CEO of Accrington Stanley Community Trust said: ‘’We are delighted to welcome three local companies as front of shirt sponsor for our college teams. They have all funded a full playing kit for each team which is very generous and enables our players to play in the new Macron replica Accrington Stanley kit.’’
Simon Whittam, Director at Readstone Construction commented: ‘’ We have worked with Accrington Stanley Community Trust in the past and have built the fantastic new facilities for them. They do a great job in the community, and we just wanted to give something back to them and help in any way we could. Good luck for the season and hope the Trust can go from strength to strength.’’
Mick Heys, Director at Ainsworths Accountants added: “The Stanley Sports Hub is a tremendous facility for Accrington and we’re delighted to be able to sponsor the college teams who play there. We wish them the best for the season and in their future careers.”
Tom Bradley, Business Development Manager at Thorne Fire & Security added: ‘’We’re happy to be supporting a local charity, it’s something we do often at Thorne Fire & Security. We’ve worked with Accrington Stanley Community Trust over the past few years on their security systems at Stanley Sports Hub, and it’s great to be able to give back by supporting the college teams.’’
