Delaford Colts is an award winning local football club for all ages, located close to our depot in Iver. In fact, we’re close to the club in many ways, because Relay people have played for Delaford Colts in the past and their sons are playing for them now. So we were delighted to sponsor this terrific family club in the 35th year since their foundation and help them to celebrate this very special Anniversary in style.
Our £1,000 sponsorship for this football season has been used to provide the Delaford Under Eights with brand new strip and we are proud that it displays our logo alongside the Club crest. Team members are shown here looking ready for action with Manager Daniel Haase (left of picture) and Coach Lee Ramayon.
The sponsorship donation has also been used to purchase a new TV set for the club house. Delaford Colts Secretary Steve Lewis explained that this is much appreciated by some younger brothers and sisters who prefer to stay in the warmth watching their favourite programme rather than shivering on the touchline!
Steve said that sponsorship is very important to Delaford Colts, helping them with providing high quality sporting facilities while keeping their subs at a low level.
"Relay’s gift of £1,000 for the season is extremely generous and has made a massive difference to the club. The Under Eights think their new strip is great and the TV set is an invaluable asset, not only for entertainment but also to screen presentations and play training videos. We really appreciate Relay’s support.”
Relay has also been thrilled to learn that the rest of our sponsorship contribution will go towards the club’s Christmas party for members and their families, with free buffet, disco and of course Father Christmas himself! A great way to round off the Delaford Colts 35th Anniversary year!
But there’s more fantastic news for the club. Dan Rangecroft (Relay Sales Director), who played for Delaford as a lad, confirms that our sponsorship will be ongoing. “We are delighted to announce that we will be continuing our sponsorship of £1,000 to Delaford Colts on an annual basis from now on. We know that it will be money very well spent in support of our local football enthusiasts young and old!
“Delaford Colts are an important asset to the Iver community and provide tremendous pleasure to people throughout the area.”
