Refrigeration manufacturer gives ‘real boost’ to Downham Market’s under 13s football team
It’s not easy getting sponsorship in some of football’s lower leagues. So you can imagine the joy in the Downham Market under 13s boys’ team when they secured support for their away strip, which is also used for training. The kit has been sponsored by Precision, the foodservice refrigeration company based in Thetford, Norfolk.
The team plays in the Mid Norfolk Youth League, under 13s division one, and manager Jane Sharpe was delighted by the news. “Having the new away kits is a real boost to team spirit,” she said. “I am really proud of the lads, it’s a very tough league this season but they are a determined bunch and never give up. We’re currently fourth in the league – hopefully this will help us on our way to the coveted third spot!”
Precision operations director Andy Fysh is involved with the team, since his son Henry plays in midfield. “I sold the sponsorship deal to the board on the basis that Precision refrigeration has some similarities to the football team – it’s designed to work in the toughest conditions and it never gives up!”
