Local Northamptonshire based company, Resource Food has confirmed its sponsorship of Woodford United F.C. First Team for the second consecutive year.

The football team is based at Woodford Halse Sports and Community Club – the hub of the village community and a stone throw away from Resource Food’s premises. Managed by Kevin Bunting and largely formed with players who live in the village, the team is currently competing in the Northamptonshire Combination Premier Division.

The sponsorship sees Resource Food’s name adorn the First Team’s matchday shirt, training kit and tracksuit for the 2019 – 2020 and the 2020 – 2021 seasons, as well as advertising boards around the Byfield Road pitch.

This is coupled with Resource Food, continuing to support and remain responsible for the Sports and Community Club waste and recycling contract, as well as members of the team volunteering their time to help with the running of the facility, manning the bar and with community events including the annual festival and fireworks night.

Managing Director of Resource Food, Ian Robb said: “We are very proud to support and sponsor our local football team. All our staff live in the local area, some even play for the team and we all regularly use the club’s facilities. It is important to us to foster a warm, supportive culture and to show our appreciation and give back to the local community.”

Commenting on the support, Chairman of Woodford F.C., Mike Bailey said: “We are very grateful for the sponsorship and support Resource Food provide to Woodford United F.C and the Sports and Community Club as a whole.”
