You can tell that football is close to the heart of our MD (Dean Croft) as we have once again got involved in supporting a local team. This time though, it's on a slightly larger scale.
Dean, once an aspiring and pretty decent footballer himself (although, don't tell him we told you that) has always had a passion for the game and has been involved in football at some level, for most of his life.
Last season, Dean was asked if he'd be interested in taking an active role in helping to develop the Under 18's squad at Tiverton Town Football Club, a club he knows well. Dean jumped at the chance and has been helping to develop the development squad (as they're known in the club) ever since. With a lack of games owing to the pandemic, this has been no easy task.
Tiverton Town Development Football Club plays in the Somerset Under 18’s league and is supported by the main club, whose team play in the Southern Premier League, which is step 3 of the football pyramid. The club has not had a team play Under 18’s football for some years, so this is a real chance to develop players not just for the first team, but for the individuals themselves too.
Paramount Personnel have also sponsored the development squad at Tiverton Town, with our name emblazoned on the rear of the kit.
With pre-season getting underway shortly, it’s all 'GO' at the club currently. Let’s hope that this season, the team and the players can settle into a more regular routine of games and that fans can once again, be allowed inside the stadium to support the football club.
