The Alresford branch of Covers Timber and Builders Merchants has agreed a sponsorship deal with Alresford Town FC U13s for the 2017/2018 season.

The team, which is based at Arlebury Park, play in Division 2 of the Southampton & District Tyro League. The club provides a structured, safe and fun environment for local boys and girls to play football, and was awarded the Charter Standard ‘Club of the Year’ last season by the Hampshire FA for its high standards and excellent training.

As part of the deal, Covers’ logo will appear on the team’s kit.

Andy Erskine, Alresford Town FC U13s’ manager, said: “We are extremely grateful to Covers for their support. This is a welcome boost to the team, who are looking forward to the coming season and building on their successes of last year.”
