In 2010 Protective Packaging sponsored a small football U7 Football team, Sale Communities JFCIMG_0401 PP Reduced who play at our local Sale High School on Norris Road.

In 2010 the squad had 12 members, including Customer Support Team Manager Sarah’s son Aidan.   Now in the 2013/14 season they are Under 10’s, they have 26 squad members split over 3 development teams, Eagles, Falcons and Kestrels. Not only have the squad numbers increased but they also have a new coaching team in place with 6 volunteer parents managing the teams, the training and of course match days. The coaches have all completed their Level 1 FA Qualifications and the age group is thriving.

The 3 teams are all playing in the Timperley & District Junior Football League with 48 other teams from the Trafford and Manchester areas, so the Protective Packaging name is truly on tour!

For the next 2 years the teams will play 7 v 7 football in ‘non competitive’ league formats with a cup competition at the end of the season. The term non-competitive is misleading however, you try telling a 10 years old kid that it’s not a competition! Never mind their parents!

We will keep you posted with progress this season and remember to come down and see us one Saturday, come and see how the support we get from local businesses like Protective Packaging keeps this club going…you can also get a brew and a bacon barm at our new snack cabin!

Thank you from all the kids and club members…
