Seriös Group, a North East-based data analytics and testing specialist, is supporting grassroots sport in the region by sponsoring a young team’s kit.
The company, based in Newcastle, has kitted out Washington Juniors FC’s under-13 squad ahead of their move to 11 a-side this season.
Paul Davison, Seriös Group managing director, is a big fan of grassroots sport and has coached this group at the club since they were six-years-old.
He said: “Supporting the local community is hugely important to us, and when the opportunity came up to help Washington Juniors under-13s with their new kits, we jumped at the chance.
“Washington Juniors does a fantastic job helping young people to learn and develop team skills and to maximise their health and welling. I am delighted to have contributed to that as a coach and now Seriös Group is doing its bit too.”
Nigel Ridley secretary, of Washington Juniors FC, said: “Grassroots football is indebted to the individuals who freely give up their valuable time, as well as sponsorship from companies without which it would not be able to exist.
“We’d like to thank Seriös Group for its generosity. Our under-13 team members are proud to wear the new kit as they continue their journey through the season.”
This is the second year running that the company has paid for strips for the side, which play in the Russell Foster Tyne & Wear League.
Seriös Group is a boutique business specialising in the delivery of professional services across multiple industry sectors, focusing on business intelligence, data analytics, testing, and quality assurance.
Established in 1990, Washington Juniors is a registered charity and one of a few clubs in the Sunderland area to be awarded Charter Standard Community Club status by the Football Association.
