Northern Gas and Power sponsors future Stars!

A star or two could be born as Seaham Red Star set their sights on promotion into the Evo Stick League.

The 11-aside north-east team finished strong in the Northern League Division 1 last season and have set their sights on promotion. And thanks to new sponsor, Northern Gas and Power (NGP), the team have a new training kit and are ready to focus on their goal.

Seaham Red Star number 9, Dan Wilson, said “We are delighted Northern Gas and Power could sponsor us. Smaller local teams rely on the generosity of successful businesses. We are really committed to kicking on next season after a strong finish to the 18/19 season. We are adding to the playing squad over the summer and believe we have one of the best teams in the league.”

The team will also be vying for three trophies including the Durham Challenge Cup and FA Vase.

NGP’s Global Head of Recruitment, Owen McCann, said “As the leading UK energy procurement specialists, we have a national (and global) focus but we like to be immersed in our local communities. NGP’s HQ is in the north east and it is great to support north east teams. We wish Seaham Red Star all the best in their quest for promotion.

“Due to numerous promotions internally here at NGP we are currently recruiting so please do get in touch if you want to be a top performer in your career.”
