Watson Ramsbottom are delighted to announce a new three year sponsorship deal with local junior football club Lammack Juniors, extending our backing of local grassroots sport.
Lammack Juniors, based in Blackburn, have over 200 registered players across ages 7 through to 18, covering boys, girls and disability football teams.
All will benefit from the sponsorship provided by Watson Ramsbottom, which specifically covers the kit worn by the coaches of the various teams ensuring not only will they look the part, but will be best placed to focus on helping the young players in their respective teams.
Managing Director Elton Ashworth knows the club well, having been actively involved in a coaching role for the last 5 years. Currently he helps to coach the under 13s side.
Elton said: –
“It’s wonderful to be involved with grassroots football as well as the larger partnership with Blackburn Rovers.
Football and sport in general has always been a key part of growing up and has featured heavily in the lives of a lot of the team at Watson Ramsbottom. To be in a position to support this is something we are extremely proud of.”
Ian Jones of Lammack Juniors added
“Lammack Juniors is a FA Charter Standard Community Club. This is the highest award that the FA can bestow upon a grassroots club and is awarded in recognition of our high standards. We believe that every child has the potential to develop both as a football player and as a person. Our motto is therefore involve, inspire, improve. We are delighted therefore, to receive sponsorship from Watson Ramsbottom Solicitors, a local company who share our values, placing their customers needs at the heart of their organisation.
Our volunteer coaches devote countless hours of their time to ensure our young people are provided with an enjoyable and safe playing experience. This sponsorship deal has enabled us to provide each coach with a professional quality coaching kit that will keep them warm and dry during the winter months. We are grateful for our sponsors support and look forward to showing off our new kit in the coming season.”
We look forward to seeing the development of the young players over the next three years and are sure our sponsorship can help Lammack Juniors continue their great work promoting the game on an accessible to all basis throughout the local area.
