The Club are delighted to announce that Champion Mouldings, the company founded and run by the son of the late Fred Mason, have become sponsors of the Youth and Academy set-up...
For the remainder of this season, they will be front-of-shirt sponsors for the Under 15’s and 16’s, and there are already plans for the relationship to continue after that.
Ben Miles, Youth and Academy Commercial Manager told us ‘There is plenty of support and interest in our Youth and Academy teams right now, and rightly so. The Youth sit proudly at the top of the League and the Under 16’s made the National Final. We’re rejecting bids from Premier League teams for our Academy players and the new training set-up at Carrington will only help us to further develop the players.
It’s fantastic that Champion Mouldings have seen the benefits to backing what we’re creating here. I always had a good chat with Fred at Goshen on Saturday mornings, his passion for the future of the Club was always clear to see. I’m sure he’ll be extremely proud that Champion are actively involved in supporting us.’
Director Ian Kendall added: ‘I’m delighted to welcome Champion Mouldings as a sponsor for the Youth and Academy. Fred Mason was a big fan of supporting the future generation of players and could always be seen on the touchline cheering them on! In fact, his picture is on the front of the minibus, so he can always see what’s going on! We are delighted that his legacy lives on through the company, Champion Mouldings, and I’d like to extend my thanks to his family, particularly Andrew for agreeing to help support the work being put in to further develop the youngsters at Bury ’.
Andrew Mason, Managing Director of Champion Mouldings voiced his opinions on the agreement: ‘Champion decided to support the youth and academy teams as they are the future of the club and it would be fantastic to see more local home grown talent make it into the first team!
The introduction of the new training facilities down at Carrington is the best opportunity any youth player needs to progress in the world of football.
I would recommend any local business to support the youth teams and benefit from the satisfaction of one day seeing home grown talent playing at Bury, having supported them in their earlier years.’
