Recognising the importance of grassroots football to our local communities and young people, SER Recruitment has announced it is sponsoring BCFC U10 Bulldog’s first team kit for the 2022/23 season.
Briercliffe Community FC, like many grassroots clubs across the country, has been hit hard by the financial impact of the coronavirus pandemic. In February 2021 a report entitled ‘The Final Whistle for Grassroots Football in the UK’ found that more than 5,000 grassroots football clubs will cease to exist as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, with 96 per cent having seen a reduction in income in the last year.
In the face of this adversity, we, as a club are still moving forward thanks to the generous donations from our community, and also our sponsors who recognise this plight, and who are only too happy to secure a future for youth sports and wellbeing opportunities in our local communities.
It’s thanks to companies such as Solutions Engineering Recruitment Limited (SER Ltd.) who are based in Blackburn, Lancashire donating £750 to the club, and becoming the new sponsors for our new U10 Briercliffe Bulldogs that the club keeps moving forward. Their ethos is ‘changing people’s views of recruitment services’ and they claim that ‘It’s not only people that develop, change, and progress, but businesses too.’ – with their help, Briercliffe Community FC will continue to do exactly that!
The coach of our new team, the Bulldogs, is Ben Gibson who also works for SER and couldn’t be happier that his company is helping to support both his passion and his community!
Club Chairperson, Louise Haines said – ‘Having support for our new team both within our football family and financially is overwhelming and we are so pleased to be working with SER Ltd. The Briercliffe Bulldogs are excited to be wearing their new shirts next season representing both club and sponsor.‘
The U10 Briercliffe Bulldogs will be starting in our 2022/23 season with SER, their sponsor, featuring on their strips and looking sharp, keep an eye out for the boys!
