Lichfield City FC's under 15 team

A Lichfield football team has scored – after netting a sponsorship deal with a local kitchen design and installation company.

BETTAquip has agreed to sponsor Lichfield City FC’s Under 15s team.

Andy Bettany,a company director at BETTAquip, said:

“We have a strong connection with Lichfield City FC and I am delighted to be supporting the Under 15’s team by providing their new kit. I believe it is important for youngsters to have an interest outside of school and football provides a great way to keep fit and to develop an understanding of teamwork.”

Lichfield City FC currently has 23 teams from under seven through to open age who play in the Lichfield District, Tamworth Junior, Burton Junior, Burton & District FA, and Midland Combination leagues.

The Under 15s team recently celebrated winning the Vildbjerg Cup, an international youth football tournament for boys and girls aged between 7 and 17. The tournament, which is the fourth biggest in Europe, was held in Denmark this July.

Darren Lever, who manages the team, said:

“Everyone involved with Lichfield City FC believes in supporting the development of grass roots sport within the local community and it is only with the support of the people involved with the club which makes this possible.  On behalf of the club I extend our warm thanks to BETTAquip for generously supporting the Under 15s team this year.”
