Aussie firm steps up to spon­sor team

Macclesfield Express - - MACCLESFIELD PEOPLE -

A SQUAD from Tyther­ing­ton went ‘down un­der’ to help find a spon­sor for some new kit.

The Tyther­ing­ton Ju­nior Foot­ball Club un­der 10s team has man­aged to ac­quire a fi­nan­cial boost from a firm based more than 10,000 miles away in Aus­tralia.

Red­back Set­tle­ment Ser­vices, which helps find ac­com­mo­da­tion for refugees in Aus­tralia, agreed to spon­sor the team after learn­ing about their strug­gle to find a spon­sor.

Steven Kennedy, the owner of Red­back Set­tle­ment Ser­vices, of­fered to spon­sor the team after the team’s coach - his cousin Michael Kennedy - ex­plained the predica­ment.

Michael said: “We tried to find a lo­cal company to spon­sor us so we could pur­chase much needed warm jack­ets for the boys for the up­com­ing win­ter months but were un­suc­cess­ful.

“Dur­ing a phone con­ver­sa­tion with my cousin Steven Kennedy in Aus­tralia, he agreed to fund us which was great news.

“The team now has a real in­ter­na­tional feel and the boys are all thrilled.

“The un­der 10s team have made a very good start to the sea­son and we are al­ways look­ing for more spon­sors to al­low us to de­velop.”
