The Shropshire Schoold & Colleges Football Association

In September 2009 we became sponsors of The Shropshire Schools & Colleges Football Association.

Following an article in the Shropshire Star earlier in that year highlighting the plight of the Associations long term financial viability, this company looked at ways in which we might be able to offer our support.

Many of Pughs staff have children playing for local football teams and we know the great enjoyment that they get from this. As part of our ongoing support with the local community and education it seemed right that we should help to give children and young people the opportunity to develop their potential through sport. Health, fitness and communications skills are all part of playing football.

Shropshire has produced many very good footballers over the years: This has included Billy Wright, Gerry Hitchens, Bernard McNally, Dalian Atkinson and Paul Bracewell.

Currently in the Premier League there is Wolves midfielder Dave Edwards and Birmingham goalkeeper Joe Hart who is hoping to gain a place in the England World Cup squad.

Peter Forrest, Managing Director of Pughs has also become the SSCFA first ever Patron and is working with the Association to promote football throughout the County.

Pughs sponsorship will help to maintain the Shropshire Schools & Colleges Football Association teams and give the young people of Shropshire the chance to develop their personal and footballing skills, and perhaps one day to become professional footballers.
