A thriving junior football club in Hertfordshire has hit the back of the net with a sponsorship deal with Selco.

Broxbourne Borough Youth FC’s Under-9s Royals team signed a deal with the builders’ merchant’s Enfield branch, and will wear Selco Builders Warehouse’s name on their shirts. The club plays on Saturdays in the Mid Herts League Purple Division.

Branch Manager Matt Harman said he was delighted the company was supporting a local team.

He said: “Broxbourne Borough is a thriving junior club with 19 teams at all age groups and more than 40 coaches. We’re delighted to be able to support their Under-9s through this sponsorship.

“We know it’s really tough for amateur clubs to raise all of the funds they need these days for costs such as pitch fees and kits, so support from local businesses is more important than ever.

“It’s a pleasure to be involved in the local community in and around Enfield.”

Club Secretary Michelle Pile said: “We are very grateful to Selco Builders Warehouse for their involvement. It’s great to see a major national business involved in grassroots football.

“The boys are so proud to wear kit sponsored by such a large and recognisable company. It makes a big difference.”
