Zilico Ltd scores with sponsorship

Tuesday 9th June 2015

The University of Sheffield Medics Women’s Football Club is celebrating success on and off the pitch thanks to the sponsorship of Zilico Ltd.

Zilico has sponsored the club since 2012, including last year’s team which participated in the University's intramural 6 a-side football tournament for the first time and won the league with a goal difference of +100.

The support, which includes provision of the team’s football shirts, has coincided with a recent growth in membership, access to new facilities and the employment of a new coach.

Jess Hookham, Club Captain for Sheffield Medics Women's Football Club, said: “Zilico’s support has been a huge part of our recent success and we are incredibly grateful.

We competed in the annual medics tournament in Sheffield (2014) and Manchester (2015), progressing to quarter-finals in both.Given the increase in our numbers, we are looking at the potential to move in to a local 11 a-side league in the future.

We have really good connections with the medics in Liverpool, Leeds and Manchester, as well as taking part in the annual medics competitions, so it’s great exposure for Zilico in front of clinicians of the future.”
