alphatech Sponsors Grassroots Team

Rob Rushby, Technical Director, alphatech IT Solutions

At alphatech, we believe in the power of community. We understand that our success is intertwined with the well-being and growth of the community we serve. Director, Rob, is well known in the local business community for being a great connector. He loves bringing local businesses together who can help each and serve each other. The community of Teesside is really important to us.

That’s why we’re proud to announce our recent sponsorship of a local grassroots football teams – the fantastic Leven Juniors FC Under 8s and Redcar Town U11 girls.

The Importance of Supporting Local Grassroots Sports

There are lots of reasons we chose to support a local junior football team including:

Building Community Bonds: Grassroots sports bring together people from all walks of life. They foster a sense of belonging and unity, creating lasting bonds between neighbours, friends, and families. This is exactly how we like to operate as a business – building bonds and forging relationships.

Promoting Physical and Mental Well-being: Regular physical activity is crucial for children’s development. It not only helps in building strong bones and muscles but also in developing critical life skills such as teamwork, discipline, and perseverance. We work in IT and know how tempting it can be for kids to sit in front of screens – it’s more important than ever to encourage the next generation into sporting activities. Screen time can also have an adverse effect on mental health – being involved in sports is an excellent way to combat this.

Creating Future Leaders: Sports teach children the importance of leadership, responsibility, and decision-making. Today’s young football players could be tomorrow’s community leaders, entrepreneurs, or even professional athletes.

Economic Benefits: Local sports events can boost the local economy. They attract spectators who might shop at local businesses, eat at local restaurants, and more. By supporting grassroots sports, we’re also indirectly supporting other local businesses.

Why We Chose to Sponsor the teams

Shared Values: The dedication, passion, and resilience displayed by the young athletes mirror our alphatech’s values. We believe in hard work, determination, and the pursuit of excellence, just like these budding football stars.

Giving Back: We owe our success to the Teesside community that has supported us over the last 24 years. Sponsoring a local football team like Leven AFC Juniors and Redcar Town U11 girls is our way of giving back and showing our gratitude.

Investing in the Future: By investing in our youth, we’re investing in the future of our community. These children will grow up with memories of playing football, learning valuable life lessons, and knowing that their business community supported them to do that.

Promoting a Healthy Lifestyle: We want to encourage children to lead active, healthy lifestyles. By supporting their footballing endeavours.

Our sponsorship is more than just providing a new kit for a children’s football team. It’s about believing in the potential of our young ones, nurturing their talents, and standing by them as they chase their dreams. We’re excited to see where this journey takes our young athletes, and we’re honoured to be a part of it.
