Martlesham Freight Management Company renews support of Felixstowe Football team

on 20 June 2017

 

Globex Freight Management, based in Martlesham Heath, has renewed its commitment as a key sponsor for Felixstowe & Walton United Football Club, the Seasiders.

2017 marks the 8th year that the company has sponsored the team, providing financial backing and event support throughout the season.

The Seasiders have recently successfully fundraised to build a new clubhouse, with Globex supporting them throughout.

Managing Director Andy Wilding said, “We are really passionate about supporting grassroots football.  All the members of the Globex team are from Felixstowe so the Seasiders are very close to our hearts and we are very proud to support them.

“The team has gone from strength to strength in recent years and has done a fantastic job in attracting community support to help them build and open their much-needed new clubhouse. We look forward to the season ahead.”

Globex is an active supporter of football in Suffolk, also sponsoring Suffolk FA’s Youth Referee Academy. Andy is a former football referee and spends many weekends developing and coaching newly qualified referees. Andy continued “As an FA qualified referee tutor and coach I spend most Sundays at the Ipswich Town Academy coaching and developing our referees. It is important that they represent the County looking well turned out, so I sponsor the Suffolk FA Referees’ Academy to help finance the new kit for our new referees.”
