US officebroker.com team help local footballers score new kit
Our US officebroker.com team have recently agreed to sponsor a budding young football team based near our HQ in Dallas – and wasted no time in sorting out a brand new kit for the squad.
The Wylie Youth Soccer Association, a team of football-mad 5-year-olds, are trained by officebroker.com’s Billy Knauss. The sponsorship was agreed by Billy and officebroker.com joint managing director, Andy Haywood
“When Andy found out that I was coaching the team we came up with the idea of having the company sponsor them,” says Billy, who is Vice President for the US side of the company.
“We needed the equipment quickly, and Andy was happy to oblige – in fact he got it all sorted so quickly that the uniforms were ordered and printed within a few days!”
The young team have been hugely successful since their start-up just two years ago. In fact, last season they turned in just one defeat. “Because they’re so young it’s all about having fun – so of course no score is kept. Well, except by the parents!” adds Billy.
Andy Haywood says:
“The first time I went to see them play I was astounded! They’re all so keen, and they’re already developing some impressive skills on the pitch, despite being just 5 years old.”
Andy attends games for moral support, sporting an adult-sized team shirt as shown in the squad photograph. He adds: “Who knows, we might even see them playing in a national league one day!”
