Excel Fostering are proud sponsors of Nelson Ladies FC

18th December, 2019

Here at Excel Fostering, we love doing our bit for the local community and helping out anyway we can and when the opportunity came about to be the kit sponsor for local team Nelson Ladies FC, we knew we had to be involved!

Nelson Ladies FC is a small community club that is located near our Burnley office. They currently play in the LFA Women’s County Premier Division and have made an impressive start to the 2019-2020 season, which has seen them cement their position at the top of the table after going on a four game unbeaten run!

Awareness, interest and coverage of women’s football is growing rapidly across the world and rightly so. Nelson Ladies FC have done an incredible job in establishing a club that gives local girls and women from all walks of life and background an opportunity to play football at a competitive level. We feel it’s important that young girls (and boys) feel like they are equal in society and have opportunities to take part in what they love.

Manager Nicky Simmonds said “We are pleased to start a partnership with Excel Fostering. The women’s game is on the rise and growing each week and here at Nelson Football Club, it was a no brainer to start a women’s team. As the only recognised teams in our area are Burnley FC and Barrowford Celtic, it’s great to add another in the Pendle area. We are always on the lookout for girls 16+ to showcase their talents to us. We have a hard working squad who have helped us get to where we are today and we’ve only been going 4 years and in that time, we have achieved one domestic final, two back-to-back promotions and we’re hoping to make it a third. So it is really pleasing to see and I want to thank Parvis and his team at Excel for sponsoring us.”

If you know any girls aged 17+ of all abilities who would like to join Nelson Ladies FC, get in touch with them on Facebook – Nelson Ladies FC.

Keep up the great work Nelson Ladies FC and we look forward to the rest of the season!
