Fine Tubes supports ‘grass-roots football’ with Drake FC sponsorship

PLYMOUTH, THE UNITED KINGDOM - Fine Tubes is delighted to announce its sponsorship of Plymouth-based youth football club, Drake FC. The precision metal tube manufacturer has signed up to provide valuable financial support to the amateur club as part of its ongoing commitment to give back to the wider local community in which it operates.

250 registered players from Drake FC have been provided with newly designed kit displaying the Fine Tubes logo to be worn during matches and training sessions. The new kits will spread awareness about Fine Tubes amongst families, friends and supporters of the club and its players.

Drake FC was founded in 2016 and has grown in a short space of time to now fielding 18 separate teams, including two girls’ teams. The young players range in age from under seven to eighteen years old and play in the local amateur youth leagues. The Under 18 team were this year’s proud double winners of both the Devon Junior Minor Cambridge League and Cup and U12’s runners up in the league. Additionally, several of the youth teams have performed exceptionally well in tournaments with numerous wins and finals reached.

We hope that our support will help the teams strive for success this coming season and we look forward to cheering them on from the side-lines.”
