Quick Lane announces sponsorship of Bingley Juniors FC
We are delighted to announce our continued support of Bingley Juniors Football Club and to inform you about the programmes that our sponsorship helps the football club be able to run.
Bingley Juniors FC are a community sports club offering children of all ages and abilities the opportunity to play football throughout the year. The Football Club is run entirely by volunteers, and sponsors such as Quick Lane are integral in enabling the club to provide facilities, sports equipment and programmes for their members.
Every year, Bingley Juniors run an exchange programme with a football club based in Hamm, Germany. This is a fantastic opportunity for players from their under-12s and under-14s age groups who get to play football in Germany and stay with a local family as well as hosting a German player in return.
Our contribution and support helps with the successful running of this programme, which has been happening for over 30 years and is a positive legacy of the tragic fire at Valley Parade in 1985. The players from Hamm Sporting Club come to Bingley every Easter and participate in a memorial football tournament held at the Marley sports ground. This tournament also includes teams from both Bradford City and Lincoln City, who were the opposition at Valley Parade on the day of the fire. Bingley Juniors act as host to the visitors from Germany for four nights and work hard to put together a programme of events to ensure they always have an enjoyable visit.
In return, the players from Bingley Juniors travel to Germany to participate in an international tournament organised by Hamm Sporting Club held on the German Whitsun Bank Holiday weekend. The players stay with local families – they are well looked after and usually even get to spend a day at the local school!
As a key sponsor our contribution will be publicised on the Bingley Juniors FC website and our name will be prominently displayed on the players’ tracksuits.
We are delighted to be working alongside Bingley Juniors FC and contributing significantly to make their tournament and exchange such a success.
We look forward to sharing some photos with you once the tournament has took place!
