Llanelli celebrates decade of football sponsorship
The Llanelli team is continuing its sponsorship of a local college football academy for the 10th consecutive year.
Decade of sponsorship
The Specsavers logo is featured on Coleg Sir Gâr’s Football Academy kit. Since the store first sponsored the squad in 2007, they have competed in the English Colleges Football Association’s elite league and many of the Academy players have gone on to play in national teams.
Head of football development at Coleg Sir Gâr, Jonathan Garcia, said: ‘With the continued support of Specsavers as our main football sponsor, we can proudly compete on the UK playing field.’
A proud association
Susan Lewis, retail director at the Llanelli branch, said: ‘It’s a pleasure to sponsor Coleg Sir Gâr’s Football Academy for a 10th year. We are keen to contribute to a healthier Llanelli and are proud to be associated with a dynamic group of young players who are passionate about sport and fitness.
‘The team has achieved so much over the past few years and it’s a pleasure to have been part of its journey.
'We have watched the team go from strength-to-strength, so on behalf of myself and the rest of the Specsavers team, we wish them the best of luck for another exciting season of football.’
