A youth football team in Worcester has announced its new sponsor as being one of the region’s leading alternative business lenders.
BCRS Business Loans, who support the growth of SMEs right across the West Midlands, has become a sponsor of Worcester City Football Club’s Under-18s and Under-21s Midlands Floodlit Youth League teams.
The not-for-profit lender’s pink and black logo will now be displayed on the back of the players’ training kits and will become a familiar sight for players and fans attending training sessions and matches.
Paul Kalinauckas, Chief Executive of BCRS Business Loans, said:
“I am delighted to share that BCRS Business Loans has sponsored Worcester City FC’s under 18s and under-21s football team.
“We understand that grassroot football clubs like Worcester City are incredibly important for young people. BCRS is passionate about ongoing professional and personal development, and this is an excellent example of using sport to enhance fitness, social skills and self-confidence whilst doing something they enjoy.
“What’s more, this is a sign of our commitment to Worcestershire. As a lender with a social mission at the heart of everything we do, we are proud to have supported hundreds of businesses in the county that are unable to access finance from traditional lenders. This has subsequently helped to create or safeguard over 620 jobs. We are pleased to take an active role in the communities we support.”
Glenn Webby of Worcester City Youth FC said:
“As a community youth football club, we’re extremely pleased to be associated with BCRS Business Loans. Their values and ethics chime with what we’re doing in encouraging footballers – girls and boys, ranging from under 7s right the way through to our under 18s and under 21s – in the local area to get out and enjoy sport.
Through training and match days we promote health, wellbeing and team activities, bringing children together who share a passion for football up and down the region. Our U18/U21 squad love their pink and black tracksuits – they really stand out.
“A big thank you to BCRS for supporting youth football, making a real difference to our children and their future.”
