Local Football Team Needs Your Help!

The Saddlers XI are a Sunday league team that play in the Greenhous Shrewsbury and District Sunday league.  The Saddlers XI are now about to enter their fourth season after having a successful first few seasons.  With the 2013/2014 season recently finished the Saddlers have gained their second promotion in successive seasons and again reached the semi-finals of the league cup. We are now looking to move into the 2014/2015 season with new sponsors to help the club move forward and challenge for promotion and cups yet again.

The Saddlers are however different from all other football teams in the region. What makes the Saddlers XI different to other teams in the region is that we have a charity on the front of our kit rather than a paid sponsor.  This charity is the Severn Hospice.  We are proud to be the only team in the region that does this.  We donate money to the Hospice every year, via a number of different events which include fun days, football tournaments, race nights etc bringing the local community together, again something that we are very proud of as a team.

Because of this we find it more difficult than most to raise the funds needed to enable the club to keep running.  To enable us to move the Saddlers XI forward we are looking for a business or businesses to sponsor the team to help us cover the costs of the 2014/2015 season.  Depending on the level of sponsorship you will have your business name proudly placed upon either the training kit, backs of the home or away kit etc or if willing to sponsor all items then names on the backs of kit and front of training shirts. We understand that this is not ideal however, we will aim to get local press coverage of the sponsorship deal due to our links with the charity the Severn Hospice.  We will also give your business a free full page colour advert in the annual Saddlers football tournament programme.  Last year we had teams from Telford, Shrewsbury, Aberystwyth and beyond and the adverts were also seen on media tvs across the region.

Below is a list of costs we are the Saddlers are looking cover through sponsorship whether that be through one main sponsor or by several sponsors;

Pitch Fees   £600  League Fees and Insurance £400 
Training Shirts    £300  Equipment   £200 

By sponsoring us you will be helping the Saddlers XI to move forward.  As mentioned earlier we are the only team in the region to have a charity on the front of our kits. The money we raise as a club goes to the Severn Hospice, a great cause. For more information on the Severn Hospice please go to their website www.severnhospice.org.uk

If you are interested in sponsoring one or more of our needs or would like more information please don’t hesitate to contact me.
