Sponsorship is helping to pay for kits, footballs and training equipment

Altrad NSG is delighted to be sponsoring a new Under 9's football team in Runcorn.

The Under 9's football team is a new addition to Runcorn Linnets FC and will play on a Sunday.

We have donated £550 to the team in time for the 2013/14 season, which will help to pay for kits, footballs and training equipment.

The team is managed by Mick Judge, Scaffolding Supervisor at our Ineos Chlor Runcorn site.

Mick said: "This is great for our team and the youngsters are really looking forward to the start of the new season. We will be playing in the Merseyside and Halewood Junior Football League and all the kits will feature the Altrad NSG logo on the front. From everyone at the club and the Under 9's team we would like to say thanks to Mike Carr and the directors at Altrad NSG for agreeing to sponsor us."

Runcorn Linnets FC is a Trust-based club which formed in 2006 and plays in the North West Counties. It was awarded Charter Standard in October 2011 and now has a wide range of junior football teams.

Mike Carr, Altrad NSG Managing Director, said: "Our community work is very important to Altrad NSG and we are firmly committed to a strong corporate social responsibility programme. The Linnets are a great community club and we are very happy to be able to help their new Under 9's to get a professional kit and training gear, which we hope can spear them on to success in their debut season."
