Pedalling 'keeper Ben backs Earlswood with sponsorship deal

Solihull Editorial 2nd Oct, 2021   0

EARLSWOOD Town FC can count on the support of Premier League goalkeeper Ben Foster for the 2021/22 campaign.

While continuing to represent Watford in the top flight, the former England goalkeeper has started to venture into the world of vlogs and podcasts.

Combining his two sporting loves of football and cycling, Foster’s ‘The Cycling GK’ YouTube channel is proving to be a huge hit.

However, it’s not just about subscribers and views for the former Manchester United man as he’s using his platform as a chance to reinvest into the grassroots game – which has come to the benefit of Earlswood Town.

The Cycling GK is now the official sleeve sponsor of The Earls’ home and away kits while The Pavilions will be home to a pitchside advertising board carrying the eye-catching branding.

Andy Walker, Earlswood Town chairman, said: “As somebody who started off their glittering career at a non-league club, it’s great to see that our level of the English game is still close to Ben’s heart.

“Any sort of sponsorship is vital to a club like Earlswood but we are also absolutely honoured to now have an association with somebody of Ben’s stature.

“The Cycling GK branding on our shirts and at our home ground are sure to catch plenty of attention throughout this season and raise awareness for both parties.

“We look forward to welcoming Ben and Tom Ochoa from The Cycling GK down to a game in the near future – and hopefully we even get to see an Earls shirt flash up on their YouTube channel at some point.”
