We are pleased to announce our renewed Corporate Sponsorship of Kader FC. We have supported the club for many years, recognising the fantastic work they do in our local community. Countless studies have shown the positive links between regular exercise and a reduction in stress and anxiety levels.
Speaking to Richard Mills, Men’s Club Captain, he explains “Kader FC’s philosophy is to provide children of all ages and abilities the opportunity to play football in a safe and friendly environment”.
Kader FC caters for boys, girls (starting at under 7s) through to adult men’s. The focus on teamwork means that many of the current volunteers and men’s team players have been with Kader FC from the age of 7 and have formed life-long friendships.
Kader FC has attracted some big names in football in its 40+ year existence. Most recently MFC Captain, George Friend, officially opened the Astroturf pitch. This pitch is used by hundreds of players of all age groups, both male and female.
Success is not just about big names for Kader FC, Richard noted, “On the pitch we have given debuts to a number of players who have come from the under 16s and 17s age groups allowing them to continue in football, which they otherwise would have probably dropped out of. The standout performances on the pitch have been a 4-3 home victory over Stockton west end and a 3-0 away victory over Stokesley.”
The club has had a string of new appointments this summer, most notably Mark Summersgill as Manager and Marty Clennett as Head Coach, who will work alongside the existing Assistant Manager, Jimmy. They have also signed a number of new players, with the aim of taking the squad to the next level.
“We are hoping to create a team that is able to compete and climb the league. In the next 5 years the chairman of Kader FC is really wanting to progress, and is looking seriously to take the men’s team to a higher level”
The success of Kader FC relies on the support of the local community. The club is based in Acklam and has a huge catchment area. You can follow their progress on twitter @Kadermens and cheer them on at their games which are free of charge to attend.
Corporate Sponsorship is vital for community clubs like Kader FC, it allows the club to reduce the running costs for the players and further allows them to incorporate more players in the team who may not be able to afford to play.
With Corporate Support Kader FC have been able to purchase better equipment, match balls, kit, medical supplies and pay for training facilities.
“We take a vested interest in our sponsors, our state of the art 3G pitch now has a spectator standing area, allowing us to place sponsorship boards around the pitch perimeter. We have had a fantastic relationship with Erimus Insurance Brokers, and we are delighted they will be assisting with management kit and be one of the first companies to have a sponsorship board supporting the club.
