“It’s a fantastic opportunity for us to raise our profile and increase the amount of business we do in Oxfordshire – we are looking forward to inviting clients to join us in the Polythene UK box for some exciting football and the opportunity to grow our business relationships,” says James Woollard MD, “the club’s recent promotion has added an extra element of excitement for the coming season and we intend to be fully behind them on their journey up the league and into the first division. COME ON YOU YELLOWS”
Polythene UK are also sponsoring the OUFC ladies team for the coming season, having supported the under 16s last year. Sponsorship of the first team comes on the back of tremendous growth in the business. “Due to our exclusive range of products, that are both cost effective and environmentally friendly, the business turnover has continued to show an impressive growth. Even in the recent challenging climate – we have always had a policy of putting something back in to the local community and as such have increased our sponsorship of the Oxford United teams”, said James, who was awarded the Shaw Gibbs Young Entrepreneur of the Year Award in 2009, and has won the 2010, IoD New Business Director of the Year for London and the South East region – the finals of which will be announced in the Autumn.
Kelvin Thomas, Chairman of Oxford United commented, “We are delighted to build on our partnership with Polythene UK and will proudly have their name on the back of the shirts next season. As existing sponsors they have stepped up their involvement and as we return to the Football League we hope that they will play a part in another very successful season. Polythene UK’s continued help with our Ladies’ teams, is also a major positive.”
