Owen and Eleanor sign up to sponsor City for 2013

Glasgow City are thrilled to announce that Owen Watkins and his niece Eleanor Jones have signed up to be our first team official match and training ball sponsor for 2013.

Eleanor and Owen first got involved with the Scottish Champions last season when they came on board to sponsor striker Jane Ross.

Owen explained the decision behind this season’s sponsorship. He said, “Last year we proudly backed Jane and she had an incredible season helping the team to the treble, finishing top goal scorer and winning the SWF Player of the Year. She then of course earned herself a move to Sweden signing a professional contract to be a full time footballer which is fantastic for her, albeit we will be very sad not to see her represent City this year. With our huge enjoyment from backing the club last campaign, we wanted to increase our support this year and when we heard about the various options available, both Eleanor and I decided we would like to be the official match and training ball sponsor of the side, to help the team perform their best on the pitch at all times. We hope our sponsorship continues to help the team reach its goals and we look forward to seeing the girls in action soon at the Arsenal game.”

Commenting on the sponsorship deal, Club Manager, Laura Montgomery said, “It is fantastic to have Eleanor and Owen back us once more. Every top team knows the cost of providing high quality match and training balls, so to have this burden removed from us for the season is a great boost to the new campaign. On a personal note, it is very pleasing to see a new sponsor from last year be keen to not only stay on board for another year, but to increase their level of support and I am thrilled that they have enjoyed following the team so much and look forward to seeing them at the matches for the season ahead.”
