Bizspace-sponsored football team are champs!

The under 21s team of the St Helens Town AFC, sponsored by Bizspace, has finished first in the Cheshire under 21s County Football League this season.

We’re delighted to announce that a Bizspace-sponsored football team is celebrating after finishing top of its league!

We are sponsors of St Helens Town AFC Under 18s and Under 21s teams, which are local to our Bold Business Centre in St Helens. 

The Under 21s squad put in an outstanding performance to finish first in the Cheshire Under 21s County Football league this season. The team also had the league’s top goal scorer, Marcus Perry, who netted 30 of the team’s 60 goals during the season.

Proud performance

Club Chairman, John McKiernan, says the team had held its nerve to claim first place.

“The lads needed to win all three of their remaining away games during the last fortnight of the season in order to win. Any draws would have meant they couldn’t have achieved the top spot,” he says.

“In those three games they managed to score 17 goals, winning two fixtures 5-0 and the third 7-0.  Not only did the team finish first, but they had the best goal scoring record and best defensive record.  They have done superbly.”

Next year the league will expand to include a number of higher level clubs.  The league will be split into two flights, with St Helens Town Under 21s in the premier division.

Fighting spirit

The club’s Under 18s team enjoyed a strong finish to the season, with just two losses in their last 10 matches.  John says the home stretch success has buoyed the team’s spirits in preparation for next season.

“Although it’s our Under 18s team, many of the players are under 17, so will be playing in the same competition again next year, with much more experience behind them,” he says.

Our Sales and Marketing Director, Emma Long, comments: “When John contacted us last year asking if we’d be interesting in sponsoring the team kits it was a very easy decision to make!  Bizspace and our Bold Business Centre are very proud to support the club, which is such an important part of the community, and we are so pleased for them on their success.”

John adds:

We are delighted that Bizspace took a chance of us and gave us their backing for our kits. From our point of view it has been a mutually beneficial relationship and Bizspace have been great to work with.
