As an avid football fan our MD Gary Bartlett couldn’t resist the opportunity to sponsor a local grassroots football team, Bournemouth Electric Youth Under 15’s.
Gary feels that it is important to support local teams and encourage young people to take up and participate in sport. By taking part in activities such as football, they are learning skills that not only help them on the pitch but also later in life.
“It is great that we are in a position to help and support a local team, and you never know we could be sponsoring the next big named premier league footballer! “
Bournemouth Electric Football club has been part of the local community since 1935, located Broadway Lane in Bournemouth. Originally a sports and social club for the electric company. Over time it has progressed into a local football club with youth football arriving in 1990. Football has always been at the heart of the club, with both adult and youth teams competing in the top flight of the local leagues.
This season will see the Bournemouth Electric Youth Under 15’s setting the pitches ablaze in their new kit proudly bearing the Meridien Interiors name.
The team is going from strength to strength, past seasons seeing them finish in the top four teams in the league. Last year they managed to put away 86 goals and conceded 33 in 19 games along before all leagues were suspended. Unfortunately, Covid halted play for this past season, but with a strong squad of 24 players, the team cannot wait to get back out in their new kits and aim for the top of the league this season.
