Leek Wildcats Complete Debut Season Double

The Leek Town “Wildcats” under 8’s girls football team have completed a cup double of the Staffordshire Shield trophy and Staffordshire cup winners cup.

Back in January, Alpha were announced as team sponsors of the newly formed team, with managing Director Paul Clews keen to support local youth development:

“We do a lot for our young people through our apprenticeship programme through local events, projects and charity activities but this is something a bit different for the wider community. It’s great to be able to help local young people enjoy sports and hopefully they’ll do well in their first season”

The girls secured the first of the two trophies on 11th May after beating Lichfield City 4-1 and completed the double on the 18th May, collecting the Staffordshire Cup Winners Cup. Everyone associated with Leek Town and Alpha are incredibly proud of the Girls’ achievement so soon.

Alpha will continue the young team and wish them every success on and off the pitch during next season.

Alpha Supporting Local Grass Roots Football

Alpha are delighted to be supporting the local Leek Town Girls under 8’s this year as kit sponsors.

This will be the “Wildcats” first season, after being formed last year by manager Andrew Rushton, who’s two daughters also play for the team.

Alpha’s Managing Director Paul Clews, who is local to Leek, officially presented the playing kit and waterproof training coats to the young squad and is keen to support local youth development.

“We do a lot for our young people through our apprenticeship programme through local events, projects and charity activities but this is something a bit different for the wider community. It’s great to be able to help local young people enjoy sports and hopefully they’ll do well in their first season”

Leek Town FC, who depend on the support of the local community to operate, were delighted by Alpha’s contribution.

“We would like to say a massive thank you to Alpha Manufacturing for kindly sponsoring Leek Town Girl’s U8 Wildcats strip and waterproof coats.  Without sponsorship like this teams would struggle with the increasing costs of strips, training costs and having to purchase equipment.”

Hopefully the new kits will help the Wildcats to a successful first season and everyone at Alpha Manufacturing wishes the girls the best of luck!
