We are very happy to sponsor the SC 1936 Grimlinghausen – C Junioren football team who are starting the 2016/2017 season with a brand new full football kit offered by Accesa.
The C Junioren team is currently made up of 16 experienced players aged between 12 and 14. Some of the boys have been playing football for 4 years, but some of them have been on the grass for 10 years, as they started early, as Bambini, in a football team. And they are at their beginning.
Since the team’s formation, the players have registered valuable achievements by winning the championships in the last two seasons:
- 2015/2016 Championship C-Junioren, Football League, Gr. 4V and Gr. 4H (C9) and
- 2014/2015 Championship D9-Junioren, Football League, Gr. 4V; Championship D-Junioren, Football League, Gr. 2H.
The sponsorship initiative was facilitated by Thomas Tillmann, our colleague within Accesa’s German office, a promoter and a big fan of the team. Thomas commented on the sponsorship by saying “It made my day to see how excited the boys have been, when finally receiving their football kits with T-shirts, shorts and football socks. Right after the delivery of the kits, a league match took place, where all had fun and success in their new outfits – amazing to see that. It is all about change, which formed a new team spirit.”
As we’re committed to encouraging sport and team spirit, it is a privilege for us to support such a passionate group of young footballers with the development and enjoyment that they get from grass roots sports.
Looking forward to seeing them playing starting this September and we wish them the very best of luck for the 2016/2017 season! Thomas will keep us up to date about the team’s progress!
Here’s a few photos of the team, including the coaches and our colleague Thomas on the day we provided the kit to them.
About the sports club
Originally based in Grimlinghausen, near Düsseldorf in western Germany, the Sport Club 1936 Grimlinghausen was founded 80 years ago to provide workout capabilities to its members. Such was the popularity that more branches and teams were created. Currently, there are three departments – football, tennis and horse riding, where club members can be active in a team. The football department includes 13 teams, such as Boys Bambini, Boys, Girls, Adult Women and, of course, Adult Men.
