Law firm helps young footballers achieve their goal
Simpson Millar Solicitors is sponsoring a Cardiff youth football team
in a bid to help local youngsters follow in the footsteps of iconic Wales international Craig Bellamy.
The Cardiff office of Simpson Millar
will support Cardiff and Vale County Schoolboys under 15s team
for the coming season, as part of its community engagement programme
Last season the team won the National Welsh Cup
and has two under 16s Wales players in the squad. Games are frequently watched by national selectors as well as Championship scouts.
Craig Bellamy has fond memories of his time representing Cardiff Schoolboys and is a keen supporter of the organisation.
He commented: "I thoroughly enjoyed my time playing for Cardiff Schoolboys – it was an honour to pull on the shirt of my home city team. I loved every moment of it. I would advise any aspiring football players to grab the opportunity with both hands
if ever given the honour to represent Cardiff and Vale Schoolboys."
The team represents Cardiff County in the Welsh Schools FA competitions as well as competing in the English Schools FA inter-association competitions. Games are played across Wales, with a number of matches in England, and the team’s home ground is at Cardiff University.
Commenting on the sponsorship deal, Phillip Gower, partner in Simpson Millar’s Personal Injury department, said: "Our support fits in with the local community work carried out
by Jenine Abdo in our Cardiff office and in particular her legal advice clinics in Butetown Cardiff ."
"The under 15s squad trains a short distance from our Cardiff office, so our staff have no excuse not to go along and show their support every so often
Phillip added: "The team’s mission statement of ‘Discipline, enthusiasm and respect’ complements an event we are arranging in Cardiff for Show Racism the Red Card
, which will underscore our work with the local community and support for youth football."
The sponsorship deal involves Simpson Millar branding
appearing on the team’s kit, website and match day programmes.Useful links:
