Clarkson Evans is the new kit sponsor for one of the South West’s leading women’s football teams.

We agreed to sponsor the kit for Gloucester City Ladies’ FC to support the club and raise our profile among women in a bid to attract more female electrical apprentices.

The team’s eye-catching yellow and black strip, which now matches their male counterparts for the first time, is adorned with the distinctive Clarkson Evans logo.

Gloucester City Ladies’ FC are flying high this season and are currently top of the table in the South West Women’s football league. Their latest 4 – 1 victory against Bridgwater secured them promotion into the FA Women’s Premier League Southern Division.

The Charter Standard team trains on a Wednesday evening in winter at The Crypt School, Gloucester between 6pm-7pm and in summer at Tuffley Park, Tuffley Avenue, Gloucester, between 6pm-7.30pm.

The firm has a number of female electricians and apprentices but is keen to attract even greater numbers to apply to join the company.

“We’re keen to encourage more women to apply for one of our electrical apprenticeships – our current female staff are integral members of our team on site and help to prove that being an electrician should not be perceived as a male-only profession,” said Lindsey Young, HR & Training Director at Clarkson Evans.

“We’re proud to begin our association with Gloucester City Ladies’ Football Club – they are one of the best women’s football teams in the South West and we wish them the best of luck for next season,” added Mrs Young.
