Team needs a new sponsor

May 06 2021

MANGOTSFIELD United Junior FC's Under 12s team is looking for a new kit sponsor.
Despite a thriving youth membership, like many clubs, the organisation has seen its income dwindle in the last year due to Covid-19 restrictions. The traditional fundraiser, a popular annual summer tournament at Pomphrey Hill, had to be cancelled last year due to the lockdown, which left a big gap in the club’s income.
The junior club was formed in 2001 after Mangotsfield United FC’s then chairman, Roger Pullin, was approached by North Bristol Colts to play under the Mangotsfield name.
Since 2001 the junior club has grown from six teams to over 30 and last year formed a link with Downend Flyers girls' football club. Starting with the Mini Mangos, the club is able to provide coaching and football for all children, boys and girls, from four years old to adults.
The junior club is completely run by volunteers and is an FA Charter Standard club, which means there are FA qualified coaches at every age level, offering football in a safe and friendly environment.
The Under 12 age group had 45 players, spread across three teams playing competitively in the Avon Youth League. They have matches across Bristol and the surrounding area, and are seeking a sponsor whose logo would be printed on the team’s match shirts for the next two years. Interested businesses can email to find out more information.
The U12s also have places available for new players and are running open training sessions in May. Parents can contact the same email address for details.
