After witnessing a local girls football team that’s backed by Sheriff Construction triumph just a couple of weeks ago, this weekend we were thrilled to see two more of our sponsored teams soar to the top of their game.

Both FC Polonia (Luton) U11s and Stevenage Futsal Ballers U12s have achieved some amazing results throughout the season, culminating with Cup Final wins this Sunday! Take a look at our quick-read blog for more.

Why we support grass roots football

Sheriff Construction has been supporting local football teams for around six years, helping the teams out by sponsoring elements of the kit they need. We currently have three teams under our sponsorship and although all have a friend or family connection with our company, this is not the only reason behind our sponsorship.

It’s our belief that sports teams are a great way for children and young people to be physically active and foster a healthy lifestyle; develop essential life skills like teamwork, leadership and strategy; experience good mental health; and of course make friends and have fun.

The success of all three teams that we’ve backed this season has been remarkable.

FC Polonia (Luton) U11s

Having already finished top of their league, FC Polonia (Luton) U11 boys headed to Flitwick Football Centre for their Cup Final on Sunday 19th May. In a close and sometimes tense game against AFC Dunstable U11s, our team came out top, taking the trophy with a 4:3 scoreline.

Stevenage Futsal Ballers U12s

Playing in the Mid Herts League, Stevenage Futsall Ballers U12s had already emerged as undefeated champions and triumphed in the Soccer Elite Cup last December. That meant they advanced to the League Cup Final which they also won on Sunday, beating their opponents 2:0.

A spokesperson for the team said:

“I would like to express our sincerest gratitude for your invaluable sponsorship. Your commitment and dedication to our team have made a substantial difference, and we are immensely grateful for your partnership.”

Congratulations to all!

We know that these teams have all worked hard to reach the top of their game and are proud to have played a small part in that by sponsoring their kits.

From everyone at Sherif Construction, we’d like to say huge congratulations to these teams – to the players, managers, coaches, parents and all their supporters. Bring on the next season!
