ISG Totty Building announces football sponsorship deal
ISG Totty Building is helping Birkby Junior School to kick
off the football season in style, with sponsorship of the team’s
brand new kit. The building contractor has strong ties with the
school after recently completing a major £1.5 million
refurbishment project and was delighted to be invited to sponsor
the new team kit, which the school secured from the Football
Foundation as part of its Junior Kit Scheme.
The football squad, comprising talented players from Year 5 and Year 6 at Birkby Junior School, will be in action when the season kicks off in March, with an ‘all-boys’ team playing against local school opposition in a 5-a-side pyramid competition. A ‘mixed’ team is expected to make a strong challenge for the school league title this year and an ‘all-girls’ team will be major contenders when their competition commences in September.
Birbky Junior School was recently awarded the FA Charter Mark for its commitment to encouraging pupils to take an active interest in football and the school is also receiving professional assistance, with regular training sessions courtesy of Huddersfield Town’s own football coach. Alongside its brand new kit, lunch and after- school coaching sessions for the school’s aspiring Premiership stars will undoubtedly have local teams worried, with Birkby Junior School looking for a top table finish this season.
Philip Ryder, managing director of ISG Totty Building, commented: “As we have played such a big part in the life of the school over the last year, we were only too pleased to support the football team. Birkby Junior School embraces the idea that sport should be enjoyable for pupils and has made a real commitment to putting together a great football squad, which is certain to be making the headlines this season.”
