This year we are proud to be playing our part in supporting Womens Football in the Fa Womens National League by sponsoring Morecambe FC Ladies Team and Shelbey Morris, a Striker playing for Leeds United Ladies.
Why the 2 teams you ask? The Leeds United connection is easy for me being a life long Leeds United Fan, yes “We’ve had our Ups and Downs” but fingers crossed the whole club is on its way back up. Our business was also founded in Leeds and Vicky and I were born and grew up in Leeds, plus as a family we are Leeds United Season Ticket holders.
The connection with Morecambe comes form our Daughter Jessica who has commenced playing girls football and has trained with Morecambe Ladies Girls U14’ Futsal team and is now progressing to playing more regularly.
We have watched both Leeds United Ladies and Morecambe Ladies play and have thoroughly enjoyed the matches we have seen, we have met players from both teams and maybe even had a drink or 2 with a few of the Morecambe team.
What we didn’t realise was that at this level in the Women’s game the players and teams as a whole do desperately struggle for funding and don’t receive anywhere near the funding that the men’s team do.
This prompted us to help where we could and are proud to announce we are the Rear Shirt Sponsors for Morecambe Ladies first team and that we are also sponsoring Shelbey Morris a Striker for Leeds United.
We look forward to seeing both teams in action and hope you both have outstanding seasons.
And would urge any of you that haven’t seen a Ladies team in action to go along and watch a game, you wont be disappointed.
