Videx, access control company, sponsors Globe Rangers FC
Videx Security, a UK market leader in the supply and manufacture of audio, video door entry and access control products, sponsors Globe Rangers FC. The local business backing from access control and door entry company Videx has made the club flourish and has also provided the resources it needs to the youngsters who play for the club.
Globe Rangers FC’s Under 10’s Blue team, based in Chingford, is experiencing continued success both on and off the pitch. The team, which plays in the East London and Essex League (ELE), is doing really well at the moment and enjoyed a great first half of the current season.
The club, which was formed over 50 years ago, has produced a number of successful teams throughout the years and in addition to its youth set up it also has a senior men’s team as well as a veteran’s team. The current youth set up was formed by two experienced coaches, Louis Trinnaman and Nathan Brown, in 2009. In just six years, it has grown from a one team set up to now having seven teams across various age groups.
Louis Trinnaman, Head of Youth Development at Globe Rangers FC, said:
“We have great talent, team spirit and commitment at the club which is why we’re experiencing the success we are. However, this can only continue to be nurtured and developed through outside support from local businesses. We hugely value Videx’s sponsorship as it will provide great benefits to the team. For example, as a result of the sponsorship, the team has access to up-to-date specialised training equipment as the boys are getting ready to step up from 7 to 9-a-side next season so they will need bigger goals, for instance, among other provisions.”
“What’s more, Videx’s funding will allow the club to supply winter training kits to the team this season to keep them comfortable and prevent injury during the colder months. It also gives the boys an extra spring in their step knowing they are sponsored – one of the lads said he felt like a professional having a sponsor on his shirt.”
The club’s focus on developing a positive team atmosphere, good facilities and provision of FA qualified coaches combined with local business backing from access control and door entry company Videx, has enabled it to flourish and provide the resources it needs to those youngsters who play for the club.
John Rickard, Managing Director at Videx, said:
“It’s great to help out such a promising, talented local team and we’re really pleased our support can provide much needed resources to help the team prosper and enjoy continued success.”
Globe Rangers FC are always on the lookout for new talent for its senior team right down to their youngest youth team. The club is also able to offer coaching scholarships to young people – the club runs regular training sessions for kids of all ages that can act as a gateway to a place in one of its teams.
