Sheffield Volleyball Club’s women’s team hopes to rise to the occasion this season after gaining sponsorship from gluten free food company, Delicious Alchemy.
The Division One national league squad is playing its first season in the second tier of volleyball in England after promotion.
Coach, Steve McKeown, said: “Sponsorship will enable us to compete on a level playing field against teams from Manchester to Portsmouth.”
Delicious Alchemy was set up by extreme coeliac Emma Killilea. The growing company has just moved into newly refurbished offices in Canada House, High Street, Sheffield.
Managing director Tony McLoughlin, said: “They are looking fighting fit.”
