CROOKES and District FC are riding high at the top of their league… with a smart new strip to match their winning streak!
The Sheffield team, currently at the top of the Meadowhall Premier League, has won a major new sponsorship deal with city law firm Simpson Sissons and Brooke. And most of the funding has gone towards a new team kit.
“This is a great result for us,” said the team’s treasurer and chairman Andy Goodison.
“Every year is difficult financially for small teams like ours - it costs us at least £2,500 annually to keep on playing, so it is a struggle to survive.
“But this sponsorship deal with SSB means we’ll not only have a new strip but we’ll also have some money towards our running costs, which really does make a difference.
“We’re top of the league at the moment and, with the backing of SSB, we’ll be able to concentrate on keeping that place.”
