Polyframe have agreed an exciting new sponsorship deal with Calderdale’s newest Junior Football Club King Cross Juniors, which is set to change the face of children’s football in the area.
King Cross Juniors are pioneering a brand new fun approach to U6 football coaching with the launch of “The Polyframe Pirates” at their club. In addition to this Polyframe have agreed to sponsor all teams through to open age with the creation of the Polyframe Football Academy, in total Polyframe are backing 9 junior teams and 4 open age teams.
“Over recent weeks we have been in discussions with Polyframe, about backing the opportunities within the club.” said Club Chairman Mark Whelan “At the same time I was having discussions with our Head Coach Paul Hill about our U6 section and how we can inject more fun into it for the kids. Polyframe were looking to back a local initiative that was sustainable and would aid development in our local communities’ younger people. As a result we have rebranded our U6 section “The Polyframe Pirates”.
Polyframe have agreed a 3 year sponsorship deal in the knowledge that their money will be used to fund development of the clubs “babies”. Boys and Girls from the age of 4-6 are all invited to come along. The sessions will be based on fun and development and will obviously contain the Pirate theme. Games include “Clear the Decks” & “Sharks ‘n’ Minnows”. All the young “Pirates” will be decked out in full training Kit and Hoodies, all courtesy of the fantastic deal with Polyframe.
Head Coach Paul Hill said “We are looking to develop the children’s core skills in a friendly environment, through games and play, whilst allowing them to gain confidence socially with their “new” friends. Football is at the centre of everything we do, however, It’s much more than just football, it’s about Children having the confidence to reach their full potential.”
Simon Loker Marketing Manager at Polyframe is delighted to see the deal put in place “Polyframe have a long track record of backing local initiatives and have sponsored many sports clubs in the past, including Halifax Town Football Club. After our initial discussions with King Cross Juniors, it was obvious that they had great visions for junior football in Halifax. We were looking to invest in a local project that was more than a “name on a shirt” and we believe this tie up with a local club will truly aid the development of young children locally. We love the ideas behind The Polyframe Pirates so much so, that after discussions, we offered a 3 year deal despite the club looking for 2 years. This a fantastic opportunity for U6 children in Halifax and we’re proud to help”
Mark Whelan concluded “I can’t thank Polyframe enough for their co-operation. The fruits of this deal will be seen for years to come and we think this concept will change the face of junior football forever. Polyframe are market leaders in their field and we aim to be the same in ours.”
