Pughs on the Teamsheet

A Shropshire football association has signed up a new team member – Pughs of Shrewsbury.

We have agreed a three-year sponsorship deal with the Shropshire Schools and Colleges Football Association, and our managing director, Peter Forrest, has also been named as the Association’s first ever Patron.

We’re delighted to be involved with the schools and colleges association, as it plays a key role in motivating young people to get involved in sport, and we’re committed to helping organisations in our local community.

As well as the sponsorship deal, Peter attends many of the matches and presents trophies and medals to the players, usually after cup finals.

Alan Jones, finance and sponsorship officer for the Association, said: “We very much appreciate the three-year sponsorship from Pughs, and the valued support Peter himself has given to us. As the Association’s first ever Patron, Peter has proved to be both a committed supporter and an effective spokesman for the work of our organisation.

“We have been equally delighted with the support for our Association shown by Kathleen Pugh, and her daughter Helen and her husband Gary. We’re looking forward to a fruitful and successful partnership.”

The football programme delivered by Shropshire Schools and Colleges Football Association (SSCFA) provides opportunities for all boys and girls between the ages of seven and 18.
It includes county, regional and national competitions for member schools and county teams, as well as a curriculum release coaching centre.
