Alpha are proud to be sponsoring another local football team for the 2020 season and beyond. Blurton Arrows have two under 14’s boys’ teams with one playing in the local U14’s Yellow league and one in the U14’s Red league. Alpha will be shirt sponsors for both throughout the year.
Both teams have made strong starts to the season, as coach Andrew Gay explains:
Blurton Arrows Red U14s
“Another really strong start to the season sitting second in the league with two games in hand on first place, were top of the group in the group stage of the Staffordshire Area cup, and have just been chosen to represent our centre in the Doug brown Memorial tournament.”
Blurton Arrows Yellow U14s
“This season was just about getting the lads used to each other with being together for the first time this season but they are far exceeding what we expected from them. They’re sitting
fourth in the yellow league with four games in hand on the third-place team and games in hand on second and first. Third place is well within their sights which would be a great achievement in their first season together.”
This sponsorship follows Alpha’s partnership with another local team – Leek Town Wildcats under 8’s girls’ team who had great success in their first full season last year. They managed a local cup double, winning both the Staffordshire Shield trophy and Staffordshire cup winners cup.
Alpha are delighted to be in a position to support the development of local talent and wish both the Blurton Arrows and Leek Wildcats the bets of luck for the season.
