Share This Post

The Carfulan Group is proud to announce its involvement in the sponsorship of Sheffield United FC’s Academy team, supporting children ranging between ages 4-6 years old in their passion for football. Lead by the initiative of ZOLLER UK Sales Manager Leigh Tricklebank, who is also Chairman of the Walsall-based club, the Carfulan Group’s involvement has recently allowed for the academy’s new kits.

“Our community football club was established in Walsall during 2004 and is now home to teams ranging from 7 to 16 years old. The club’s continuance is directly fed by the Academy, which enables children between 4 to 6 years to first sample football at a young age and ultimately feed into our older teams,” Leigh Tricklebank states.

“We are delighted to receive sponsorship from the Carfulan Group, whose involvement has recently facilitated the purchase of 30 new Academy Kits, giving the young players an association with the club and officially welcoming them as a part of the team.”

Run by FA qualified and CRB checked coaches, the Academy is a thriving, fun and safe place for children to learn and love the game of football, with its 10 acre site which is home to 5 mini-soccer pitches, 3 youth pitches, 2 full size pitches and an indoor pitch there’s plenty of room for the club’s 2020 vision.

Leigh concludes, “We are proud to hold numerous participation activities which aim to bond the children, parents, members and wider community. And we proudly self-fund all of these activities, as well as continue to support the excellent coaching team who continue to volunteer their time and expertise to encourage the children.”
