In a city devoted to football, which has also produced some of the finest footballing talent on the planet, the team behind Harrison’s Bar & Kitchen have already had a busy season so far, by sponsoring five local grassroots football teams, where the boys and girls involved have already enjoyed winning success.
They wanted to get involved as they understood the importance and value of these teams on every level. As well as the best quality football being played, the five teams and the leagues they are involved in provide outstanding health and wellbeing benefits to participants, and also the chance to mix and meet with other football fanatics, share talents, learn new skills and also help strengthen community ties.
The Football Association has also long documented the economic benefits of grassroots football, especially in terms of healthcare savings. But it does not stop with football!
Sponsorship deals have also been done with Baltic Triangle based No Limits Amateur Boxing Club with sponsored trophies on recent club shows and funded training t-shirts for junior boxers for use in recent competition. No Limits competed under England boxing in the Merseyside and Cheshire amateur boxing association.
Harrison’s Bar & Kitchen has been able to engage in sponsorship after a busy trading year – it’s warm and friendly atmosphere is a part of its charm, and its dedication to live sport, including screening popular football matches, along with boxing, golf, rugby and horse-racing, make it the ideal place to enjoy hearty food, refreshing drinks and have a relaxing day, afternoon or evening out. The team are busy preparing to show every World Cup 2022 game live – football in particular is a huge draw for guests.
The team at Harrison’s have also really enjoyed the success closer to home of the grassroots teams they sponsor including:
-Greenloons FC under 15’s who play in the Craven Minor League.
-FC Litherland Elite under 10’s who play in the Scotland Road league.
-Boca FC under 12’s who play in the Scotland Road and District Junior football league on a Saturday, and the Walton and Kirkdale Sunday league.
-Crosby Stuart Girls under 9’s who play in the Hightown Junior league.
-Crosby Stuart Girls under 8’s who play in the Hightown Junior league.
Nicola Leppert, the BDM of Harrison’s Bar & Kitchen says:
“Grassroots football plays a vital role in local communities by bringing people together as well as keeping kids healthy. That’s why we are proud to support these five amazing teams. We work with local sportswear company Malooka to provide the children with branded jackets and kits.Sport is obviously close to our hearts at Harrisons, and we feel that now more than ever it is really important for children to enjoy both opportunities and support when it comes to participating in the sport they love.
We also wish all five teams the very best of luck for the rest of the 2022/23 season.”
At a time when we are busy discussing which talented players from the local area will contribute to the upcoming World Cup 2022, after the huge successes of the Lionesses over the summer, the team at Harrison’s are hoping that their five beloved teams will include names we will all be talking about in future years.
