Vertu Honda Newcastle scores with support for junior basketball team


Jun 5, 2019 ##retail

Vertu Honda Newcastle has been helping to keep the senior players, including coach Fabulous Flournoy, on the road with a fleet of Honda cars for the last five years. The dealership is now extending its support to the junior basketball club within the Eagles Community Foundation programme for the second successive season.

The aspiring young players of Cardinal Hornets Basketball Club, who are based at Cardinal Hume School in Gateshead and have a total of 120 members ranging from 4 years old up to 16 years old, will proudly wear the dealership logo on their shirts.

Chad Ridley, branch manager at Vertu Honda, said: “The Newcastle Eagles are a hugely successful team and they are a credit to the region, continuing to bring home titles to an area which is gaining a reputation as the Northern Powerhouse of basketball – mostly due to their success. We are very proud to be working with the Newcastle Eagles and I’m delighted that we can extend our support to the up and coming young talent in the region.”

Cardinal Hornets Head Coach, Anthony Forrester, said: “Vertu Honda is a long-standing supporter of the Newcastle Eagles and we’re absolutely delighted that they are providing support to Cardinal Hornets.

“All 12 of our current teams, from under 8’s to under 16’s, wear their Hornets kits with pride, and it is the sponsorship from Vertu Honda that has made this possible. We are extremely grateful for their continued sponsorship”
