Littlehampton Youth FC
Hi Way Services Ltd are please to announce we have sponsored Littlehampton Youth, a team local to our Sussex Depot. The team has a close connection with the company as Contracts Manager Dave Bigg's son plays for the team.
The Youth FC was formed in 2003. It's a friendly club that takes on players of all abilities. The coaches are all voluntary, running their retrospective teams showing their love and commitment to the sport. Jordan Farnden (head coach) is one volunteer at the club. Jordan joined in June 2014, he was offered the position as head coach midway into that football season and later became manager in June 2017. Besides coaching at Littlehampton Youth FC, he also coaches for Chelsea Foundation and in Portsmouth for the local community. Jorden is also a sports technician at Greatham Primary School.
The future is bright as they have just been promoted to the A division for the first time, they're the first Littlehampton Youth team to be promoted to this division. A big well done to the team, coaches and parents. We are delighted to be sponsoring Littlehampton Youth FC, this has enabled the team to purchase new kits. The sponsorship will also go towards training aids and training sessions on Littlehampton Academy 3G pitch.
We mentioned earlier Dave Bigg's son Frazer is playing for the team, last season was Frazer's first full season with Littlehampton Youths U12s team helping them to promotion to the A League. Come the end of the season Frazer won Most Improved Player at the club's annual presentation. A big well done to Frazer!
Contracts manager Dave Bigg added "The support means a lot to him, Littlehampton Youth and the local community. I'm proud to be a part an organisation willing to sponsor our local youth team. It's also great to see the company branding on the new kits. I hope this can generate some awareness of our business and it's services in the local area.
