Calderdale’s newest Junior Football Club, King Cross Juniors, have agreed a long term Partnership with Halifax company Polyframe that will see the clubs’ home ground renamed “The Polyframe Academy”.
“Polyframe, have already shown huge commitment to our younger children’s development with their sponsorship of our U6 section (The Polyframe Pirates)” said Club Chairman Mark Whelan “However, we are absolutely delighted to agree this £15,000 deal which will help move the club to the next level. We believe this deal to be one of the biggest Junior Football sponsorship deals in Yorkshire and for a relatively new club like ours, it’s incredible.
As well as playing home games at the newly named “Polyframe Academy”, every team will carry the Polyframe logo on the back of their shirts. The club’s adult teams will also wear Polyframe team kit. The money will be spent on improving equipment and facilities both on and off the pitch and will ultimately achieve Polyframes’ goal of backing a local initiative that is sustainable and will aid development in the local communities’ younger people.
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 a great vision 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. We are looking to double the number of children involved at our club within the time frame of this deal and we are also looking to invest in good quality coaching. This deal helps enormously. Polyframe are market leaders in their field and we aim to be the same in ours.”
King Cross Juniors and Polyframe are looking to become long term partners and will have more initiatives in the coming months.
