Salford church footballers get mass-ive shirt sponsor

St Philip’s Trinity football team is set for the 2015 season after being kitted out by Timekeepers Square and English Cities Fund.

The team is echoing the success of Salford City FC with a promotion in its very first year.

Captained by Reverend Huw Thomas of St Philip’s Trinity the side were crowned champions of the Manchester and Cheshire Christian Football League’s division four and has got its eye on another league title following last year’s success.

Reverend Huw said: “We’re delighted that Timekeepers Square has sponsored our new shirts.

The development is right on our doorstep and we’re hoping to create a relationship between those living at Timekeepers Square and their local church, St Phillip’s, whose clock faces can be seen from the development and gave rise to its unique name.”

Timekeepers Square is the second phase of the Vimto Gardens development, which is located on Salford’s Chapel Street between St Phillip’s Trinity and Salford Cathedral.

The development is adjacent to newly-built Vimto Gardens and will include 36 Georgian-style townhouses over six street blocks.

Phil Mayall, development director at ECf, said: “We’re keen for Timekeepers Square to enhance the great community feel that has been created in this area over the past couple of years. The team look great in their shirts and we hope it spurs them on to another great result for the season.”
