Software development company Propel has been named as a shirt sponsor for the Huddersfield Town Women’s Under 14 team. The sponsorship, which supports with covering the costs for kit, equipment and training facilities for the club, comes as the team came runners up in both league and cup.

As part of the sponsorship agreement, Propel’s logo will appear on the backs of the both the home and away shirts. The partnership came to fruition due to managing director Andy Brown’s previous history of supporting and coaching grassroots football, working with local boys and girls teams for the last six years.

Andy spotted the opportunity to get involved with the sponsorship of the team after his daughter was signed by Huddersfield Town this summer, and the club appealed to the parents and people involved for assistance. Huddersfield Town Women FC is run entirely by volunteers, so it relies heavily on companies and individuals to enable them to provide the players with the best environment to reach their full potential.

Andy said: “Having been involved with various teams it's been great to see how football has increased the confidence of the players I have coached. It’s been great in helping many players aspire to be better on the pitch and also to help guide them as young people. We are a team-based business ourselves and spend a lot of time following these principles and investing in our staff.

“The Propel CARE values of Colloborate, Aspire, Resolve and Enhance could be directly applied to any football team and if we can help enable that to happen with young people then it can only be a positive. We can’t wait to see the team grow in both their football skills and confidence - best of luck with the new season HTAFC WU14s!”.
