Nursery Announces Hockey Club Kit Sponsorsip

Thursday, 24th September 2020

A BRAND-NEW, purpose-built children’s nursery opening near Tamworth has announced it is sponsoring the new playing kit at Lichfield Hockey Club.

Sheepwash Farm Day Nursery in Whittington has signed a three-year deal and will see the name of this new venture on the front of every adult and junior team shirt.

A group of adults and juniors at the Eastern Avenue club were asked to design a new kit last season and were able to negotiate a deal with international sports brand Adidas. With sponsorship from Sheepwash Farm Day Nursery, the club has been able to offer the kit to players and members at a reduced rate.

Charmaine Eagles, Director & Manager said:

“I’m delighted that Sheepwash Farm Day Nursery is the new team sponsor of Lichfield Hockey Club, and I’ll be proud to see the nursery on everyone’s shirt as they represent a brilliant club. It’s fitting that as hockey gets back normal, a brand-new season sees the announcement of a brand-new kit.”

Neal Critchley from Lichfield Hockey Club and chair of the new kit committee said:

“I’d like to say a huge thank you to Sheepwash Farm Day Nursery for sponsoring the new kit. This support has meant that we are able to offer the kit at a subsidised rate, which is important at this moment in time in society. Every player, both young and old, will now wear this bespoke Adidas kit with pride.

“The club wanted to refresh its match and training kit of many years.  A special new kit steering committee was created by the club with senior and junior players, plus parents analysing clothing, brands, colours and design options.  With the assistance of Printable Promotions, a deal was brokered with international brand Adidas, which is a major coup for the club. I’d like to say thanks to the new kit committee for their time in creating this special design, the first time the club has had a bespoke kit.”

Sheepwash Farm Day Nursery is a brand-new purpose-built operation on Fisherwick Road, Whittington for children up to five years. Set among the beautiful farm, with access to the animals, the children will have an enhanced learning environment as part of the Early Years Foundation Stage.
