Forwarder invests in football stars of the future

[ July 3, 2018   //   ]

A group of football-mad youngsters will be stepping onto the park in style thanks to Palletways member, International Forwarding. Kingshurst Sporting Club FC’s under-8s team based in Solihull are freshly kitted out in their own teamwear for the upcoming 2018/19 season thanks to the efforts of team manager – and International Forwarding driver – Matthew Graham.

Kingshurst Sporting Club FC is run by volunteers and helps hundreds of young players to develop their football and life skills through regular training and soccer camps. The club has 247 players across its 22 boy’s and girl’s teams, with two additional adult teams.

Matt Graham said: “I’m really proud of how professional the lads look in their new kit and they think it’s fantastic too. Sponsoring the team is a great opportunity for us to give a little something back to the community and support grass-roots football.”

Gary Leake, club secretary at Kingshurst Sporting Club FC, added: “We need sponsors like International Forwarding to secure the club’s future as they enable us to invest in our volunteer coaches and guarantee that our children get the development they need. We’re very hopeful that this is just the beginning of our journey with International Forwarding.”
