Clarkson Evans sponsors Gloucester-based football team Hardwicke AFC

Hardwicke AFC is the latest local sports team to secure a kit sponsorship deal from electrical contractor Clarkson Evans.

Sport is a firm fixture at Clarkson Evans with a number of staff participating in sports teams throughout its branch network.

The electrical contractor agreed to sponsor the kit for Hardwicke AFC to support not only the club, but a number of its own electricians who play for the team.

Hardwicke Club Manager, Lee Chivers, utilises his management capabilities on and off the pitch as Customer Care Manager at Clarkson Evans. An unsung hero, Lee manages a team of customer care administrators and electricians to deliver the highest level of support to the company’s customers.

With teamwork a key company attribute, it’s easy to see why Clarkson Evans staff Daniel Rasdale, Russell Smith and Scott Hayward are key players within the team, with centre midfielder Daniel Rasdale being named Hardwicke’s “Player of the Year” last season.

Hardwicke AFC has fought its way back into the County League this season and currently retains a respectable mid-table position after securing promotion through an impressive seven divisions.

The distinctive Clarkson Evans logo now features prominently on the club’s historic blue and white strip.

The team trains every Tuesday and Thursday at Hardwicke Village Hall, Gloucester at 6.30pm.

 “We are proud to support Hardwicke AFC and hope they continue their successful run as the season progresses. Our electricians have to be fit to cope with the demands of working on site and teamwork learnt through sport certainly helps them in their working lives,” said Lindsey Young, HR & Training Director at Clarkson Evans.

Clarkson Evans’ award-winning training, strong team spirit and excellent career prospects mean the company’s local apprenticeship opportunities are in high demand.

The company, whose distinctive blue and white vans are a regular sight on the county’s roads, anticipates it will continue to recruit scores more apprentices nationwide in 2016.

Would-be apprentices need to have a natural knack for all things practical and the dedication and drive to work alongside a team of committed electricians. They need to be aged 18 , hold a full UK driving licence and have good GCSE grades in Maths, English and Science.
