We're thrilled to announce that one of our star players is to be sponsored for 12 months by Williams Lester, a dynamic accountancy firm based in Cardiff.
The player being sponsored is Sarah Jones, a senior mid-fielder and GB athlete. Jones currently plays for Holcombe Hockey Club but represents Wales on the international stage.
Sponsorship of players is highly sought after and hugely valued by Hockey Wales. Part of the organisation’s mission as the sport’s National Governing Body is to alleviate the burden of membership fees to as many of its affiliates as possible.
Williams Lester Accountants is led by sports fan David Poole, who likes to support teams both in the locality as well as the national stage. The accountancy firm operates from offices in Cardiff and Merthyr Tydfil, but provides services to clients across Wales as well as the rest of the UK.
On hearing of her sponsorship, Jones said “I can’t thank Williams Lester enough for their generous support. Reducing my costs in playing the sport I love gives me the freedom to focus on the key aspects of the game.”
Upon being asked as to why he chose to sponsor a Hockey Wales player, David Poole said “It’s important that we all play our part to support our up and coming sports stars, especially at times of economic uncertainty. Williams Lester is determined to make its own contribution to the Welsh sports scene, and we hope others will follow our example.”
Hockey Wales CEO, David Phenis also commented that “Knowing Sarah now has this support from David and his Williams Lester colleagues is fantastic. So many of our players are magnificent role models and work unbelievably hard so deserve to be recognised through sponsorship support.”
