Crewe based company Air Products has sponsored local football team CB Phoenix. The team, who are currently moving up to the Under 10s category in the South Cheshire league, are now able to invest in new kits, water bottles and raincoats thanks to the support from Air Products.
Dave Dixon, CB Phoenix coach commented: “Thanks to Air Products we are now able to invest in new equipment which is invaluable to a small team like us. Hopefully, with Air Products support, we will be able to reach the top of the league!”
Matthias Kuhn, general manager - Packaged Gases, commented: “At Air Products we encourage activities that promote physical well-being and fitness including football. As patrons of the South Cheshire Chamber of Commerce we hope that CB Phoenix continue to succeed.”
The team are often commended by referees by their healthy attitude whether they have won or lost with other teams being told to look at them as role models. The new equipment will certainly keep a smile on their faces.
