As rules relax on grassroots sports, Stopsley Flyers Under 10s football club are back on the field with Neville Funerals supporting them from the side-lines.
First sponsoring the team in 2019, we are committed to supporting local community groups to bring people, young and old, together and are pleased that these groups are able to resume.
Neville Funerals presents the Neville Shield annually to a player that shows real team player spirit and enthusiasm for the sport and other team mates. Most recently, Charmian Alexander, our Director, presented the shield to a young player named David Soyele, to recognise the incredibly positive attitude he has maintained throughout the season, and the contribution he makes to overall team performance as a result.
Simon Jackson, Manager at Stopsley Flyers said: “We have a great relationship with Neville Funerals, and it was a pleasure to invite them over to present the award. When they first came on board in 2019, the company provided our team with brand new football kits at that time, a really important investment in us and the boys.
“Prior to this, the team’s confidence was low, and the new kits really marked a turning point for the team. Performance changed, attitudes changed, and they really felt like a team in matching kits.”
Charmian Alexander added: “Neville Funerals has long committed to supporting our wider communities and local charities however we can. Our staff live locally and nominated the Stopsley Flyers as a great initiative to sponsor and we gladly stepped forward to do just that.
“This last year, above all others, and when they are able to get together these teams play an important role in providing contact and exercise and purpose for many children. We are simply delighted that we can help provide some support that will hopefully ensure the longevity of clubs such as these and would encourage more local organisations to do the same, if they are able.”
