|December 2006 - Tempest
FC In New Kit After Sponsorship Boost
FC's under 11’s football team based at Broad Lane Sports Ground, has received a cash
boost from Bryant Homes which has enabled them to purchase a new kit for
the whole team.
Homes, who are building the Cooks Shipyard development, agreed
to be the team’s sponsor from 2006 - 2008 after hearing about their
achievements from members of the local community. The £1000 sponsorship
per season will enable the coaches of Tempest FC to provide new tracksuits
and rain jackets for the whole team.
Stanhope, senior sales manager for Bryant Homes, said: “I found out
about Tempest FC through our homes consultants who are based at the
marketing suite in Wivenhoe. They told me how great the team were and
asked whether there was any way we could help support them. We were keen
to get involved with the local community so were only too happy to sponsor
them – it’s great that they have been able to buy a new kit for the
whole team and I’m sure the boys will do us proud this season. “
Olymbios, assistant coach for Tempest FC, adds: “We are delighted with
the sponsorship from Bryant Homes and amazed that such a large company
would take an interest in us. The boys feel extremely special that they
have been sponsored and there’s a real buzz throughout the whole team.
Every year we worry about finding the finance to provide kit, so this is a
fantastic gesture that will give the boys pride and allow them concentrate
on the game that they love to play.”
Tempest FC are a team to be reckoned with and are
currently top of the league with five wins and a 73-goal difference. The
team is made up of boys from Wivenhoe, Great Bentley, Elmstead Market,
Colchester and Great Horksley.
