Supporting youth football in our local community

We’re delighted to announce we’re now the principal kit sponsor of Mexborough Knights Football Club.

Mexborough Knights JFC is a youth team, offering children under 10 the chance to get involved in grassroots football. Established in 2021 by one of the team from our main operations site, they’re playing in the Doncaster & District Junior Sunday League as part of the Sheffield & Hallamshire FA. It’s no small undertaking to set up a youth community group, so we were delighted to help our colleague (aka Mr Chairman) by sponsoring their kit to help them get match ready.

Being asked to lend our support to Mexborough Knights FC is great way of giving back to the community as part of our ESG commitment - the ‘Social’ part of our ESG approach is about our involvement in communities and supporting charities.

Youth football is great for giving structure to kids – from the exercise and ball skills, to giving them other role models to look up to in their peers and the coaching staff. We’ll be cheering them on during the season, wishing them every success and an avalanche of goals. Who knows, Mexborough Knights Under-7s and Under-10s may have the next Marcus Rashford, Harry Kane, or Mo Salah in their ranks!

Good luck team!
