October 19, 2020

Chesterfield manufacturer CBE+ has become a sponsor of New Tupton Ivanhoes Under 12’s team. New Tupton Ivanhoe F.C. Under 12’s play in the North Derbyshire Youth Football League and were having to rely on bibs and a hand me down away kit until CBE+ came to the rescue.

Jordan Ball, Manager, New Tupton Ivanhoe FC U12’s said “We thank CBE+ for supporting the team by sponsoring our first ever away kit. As a new team we had been relying on bibs and a hand me down away kit last season. The players are excited to be playing in it.”

Marie Cooper, CEO of CBE+ said “CBE+ is keen supporter of initiatives and activities for young people in the local community. We have a number of employees who live in Tupton and play for New Tupton Ivanhoe FC at various age groups, so it was a pleasure to support the u12’s team as away kit sponsor for the next two seasons.”

Marie added “By participating in grass roots football, young people can develop their skills and confidence, play an active role in their community and improve their employability which can only benefit local businesses such as CBE+. We wish the U12’s the best of luck for the new season”

Dave Hoult, Secretary of New Tupton Ivanhoe FC added “The support of local businesses is vital to the survival and growth of New Tupton Ivanhoe FC. Thank you to CBE+ and all the other businesses that are involved with the club and we look forward to celebrating our 10 th Anniversary with them in 2021.
