Abellio purchased brand new navy blue training wear for all Chertsey Town U18 players and staff in what has now been extended to a two year sponsorship deal.

Said Chertsey Town U18 Manager Josh Henry:  “This is something we couldn’t have imagined when Chertsey Town U18 was reformed in 2012 and were to play in the Ryman Youth League (West Division).

“To play at a semi professional level you need commitment, talent and professionalism.  When Abellio Surrey Bus contacted us about a possible sponsorship deal, we couldn’t believe it at first.

“As a result of the sponsorship, it soon became evident at training and matches that the players felt they were playing for a club who had ambitions to provide professionalism throughout.

“And it all started thank to the sponsorship from Abellio to whom we are indebted.  The training wear has given the players a really professional look.

“Without this huge sponsorship, it would have been extremely difficult for us financially and I am sure we are the envy of other local youth teams,” said Josh who added that the kit of shirts, shorts and jumpers were for 23 members of the squad.

As part of their pre-season training regime, Chertsey Town U18’s have arranged a total of 11 friendlies starting with Westfield away on June 25.  The Ryman season starts week beginning August 24 and this coming season Chertsey Town’s under 18’s will be competing for the first time in the FA Youth Cup.

Said Alastair Willis, Abellio Surrey Commercial Manager:  “We are keen to encourage more young people to travel by bus and take advantage of the offers we have.

“If we can get fewer cars on the road, the cleaner the environment will be and I think I speak for younger people when I say the environmental footprint is something they feel very strongly about.

“We are delighted to have sponsored the training kit of Chertsey Town FC’s under 18’s and wish them every success for the future.”
