TR North East sponsor Whickham Fellside Football Teams!

TR Fastenings’ North East division is proud to sponsor the Whickham Fellside YFC Girls Under 13 & 14’s football teams for the 2021/22 season. The club has 33 teams playing in distinctive yellow and green colours, from Under 7’s to Under 23's. They also have a development group for boys aged 5-7 and a wildcats group for girls aged 6 and upwards – www.whickhamfellsideyfc.co.uk

There has recently been an exciting opportunity for the team with Whickham Fellside YFC & the club  recently becoming a sister club to Durham WFC (who play in the FA Championship, 1 tier down from the WSL). The team was invited to the first game of the season against Watford and had the opportunity to parade on the pitch at half time! The U13 and U14 Girls will play in the Sunday Northeast Junior Football League, based around the Newcastle, Gateshead, Stanley and Sunderland area.

Don Lamb, Strategic Account Manager from TR Fastenings comments:

“TR Fastenings is delighted to be part of this, giving girls in our local community that chance to be part of a team. I believe being part of a club is an important part of a young person’s development!

They are a volunteer run and funded group and have some great members, their families, sponsors, charitable groups and donators to support the club.”

Paul Mitchell, U13 Girls manager comments:

“Money from sponsors of grassroots football teams is always hugely appreciated and we were delighted to be sponsored by TR Fastenings. The sponsorship money provides the girls with warm training tops and rain jackets - which is a must in the cold North East winters!”
