A ambitious women’s football club has gained sponsorship from an independent firm of insurance brokers and financial planners.
The Alan Boswell Group in Great Barton has penned a three year deal as the shirt sponsors of the Ipswich Town Ladies Football Club.
The team, who play at Rushmere Sports Park, is aiming to reach the first division of the national league by 2015.
Adrian Rayner, who is director at The Alan Boswell Group’s branch at East Barton Barns said the opportunity to get behind the local team was too good to miss.
“Ladies football has never been more popular, it has gone from strength to strength over the last 10 years.
“The success of the GB team during the Olympics has propelled its popularity even further and we are absolutely delighted to be supporting the ladies in their bid to enter the national league.”
Paul Baxter, vice-chairman of the Ipswich Town Ladies Team said: “This is an exciting year for the ladies.
“This is the first time they have formally become part of the team.
“We are delighted to have secured this crucial sponsorship .”
