NSG scores with sponsorship of Wales U14 football champions

Posted 18 July 2011

Scaffolding giant NSG is throwing its weight behind one of Wales’ best young football teams.

NSG UK scores with sponsorship of Wales U14 football champions.

The Deeside based company is sponsoring the Ysceifiog Wolves JFC Under 14s team, based near Caerwys in Flintshire, for the 2011/12 season.

The Ysceifiog Wolves JFC team was only formed in 2007 but has already had excellent success. They won several cups last season, topping the Clywd U13s league, then winning the North Wales and Welsh Tesco national cups. The team represented Wales in the final of the Tesco Cup at Birmingham FC's St Andrews Stadium, losing against England in a penalty shoot out final - their only defeat of the season.

Andy Dowsett, Ysceifiog Wolves manager, said: "We are beyond delighted to be taking the team forward in partnership with NSG UK - their generosity and support will enable our young men to both appear and feel like the young budding professionals that they are.

"We are in the process of preparing the squad for the 2011/12 season, and the sponsorship could not be better timed. The team's existing playing kit is three years old, and the squad have never had training kit or waterproofs. This sponsorship will make a massive difference both on and off the pitch and we can't thank Mike Carr and his team nearly enough."

NSG UK managing director Mike Carr said: "Our community work is very important to NSG and we are firmly committed to a strong corporate social responsibility programme. The Wolves are a great young team and we are very happy to be able to help them get a professional kit and training gear, which we hope can spear them on to further success.

NSG is also a supporter of the Shrewsbury House Youth and Community Centre in Liverpool, which provides activities and a place to go for local youngsters, as well as an innovative training and apprenticeship scheme.

NSG UK is one of the biggest scaffolding and industrial services firms in the UK. The business works across a variety of sectors including construction and engineering, rail, social housing, marine and off-shore, oil and gas.
