10:00am Wednesday 30th October 2013 in News
A Shipley-based security firm has extended its support for a successful youth football team.
The Select Group is now sponsoring the under-18 team at Silsden AFC after supporting the players through various age groups.
The team clinched the runner-up spot in the Craven & Aire Wharfe under-18s league last season, even though they were only 16 and 17-years-old at the time - and are favourites to win the title this year .
Stephen Narey, team manager and coach, said: “The company’s backing has had a marked effect on the successful development of our young players.”
Pete Spencer. Select Group managing director, said: “The lads are doing exceptionally well and we’re more than happy to give them a helping hand.
"We’ve supported a number of regional sporting and community-related initiatives, many of which have an accent on youth.
“We remain fully committed to helping children and young people develop their sporting skills and, as a direct result, their health and fitness.”
