As part of a new community fundraising initiative, Stamford AFC are delighted to announce a partnership with food outlet Subway for the remainder of the 2012/13 football season.
The deal will see the High Street Subway branch in Stamford support youth development by contributing 10p to the Young Daniels every time a selected Sub and a regular drink are sold in store.
The partnership gives the local Subway franchisee the chance to give something back to the community they serve and Bob Moodliar, owner of the Stamford High Street store, is delighted to be supporting his local team.
“Sport plays an essential part in our community and we hope to help these young players get the things they need with everyone’s support,” Moodliar said.
“Whatever we raise will go straight to the club, so the more support we get, the better it is for the kids.”
Stamford AFC's football development manager Ian Evley is equally enthusiastic: “We’re delighted that the Stamford High Street Subway store will be supporting our club through their donations.
“We’ll be using the funds to invest in activities that have a positive impact on player enjoyment such as coach education, equipment and facilities.
“Stamford AFC Football Development Centre is a not for profit club at the heart of the community, so all our teams from under-7s to under-18s will really benefit from the fantastic support the people of Stamford gives us.”
Chris Rivett, chairman of Stamford AFC, added: “We're very grateful to Subway and to Bob Moodliar in particular for creating this innovative sponsorship opportunity.
“The backing the local business community provides for the club is very important and recently we've been able to attract additional support from companies outside the town, who are keen to be associated with a progressive football club.
“The fact that we have a successful multinational chain like Subway willing to get behind the club as well is very encouraging.
“The first-team have made a solid start to the season and people are sitting up and taking notice of the progress that is being made on and off the field in a relatively short space of time.
“This relationship with Subway provides the opportunity for fans to support the development of the club's future stars and it is one we are all excited about.”
