Westbury Vets on their European Tour
EDSB Compliance Solutions are supporting grassroots football once again this year with many teams wearing the EDSB logo on their shirts and training tops.
However on this occasion we have sponsored the Westbury Veterans, based in Bury with their first ever tour into Europe. EDSB’s very own Technical Surveyor Paul Ridgley, who has been with the business for many years, approached EDSB to sponsor his team for this amazing event and we were excited to support them as they headed to Belgium for 4 games. The event itself is over 30 years old and is based in the town of Riemst, in the province of Limburg. Therefore, when the team were invited to come over and take part in the tournament, there was no hesitation to make their European debut!
The Vets had a hugely successful tournament winning 3 out of their 4 games, only narrowly missing out to an open age French team with many 20 year olds, so no real complaints.
EDSB provided the funding for their travel jerseys which they proudly wore throughout the tour and will also use them this year as they contend in the Cheshire Veterans League.
“Can I just say a massive thank you for the sponsorship, we were one of the main English clubs in the competition that seemed to
put each team to the sword, which is why we ended up facing an open age side in the end, to bring us back down to earth. However to face each team kitted in the hoodies all matching with your company logo on show and then also have them worn at night, showed the unity and professionalism of the team but also the commitment to represent your company with pride day and night. We plan to wear them for the upcoming season where we will be appearing in the Cheshire Veterans League, given the lads prefer them to the original one we have, so we can continue to represent going into the new season. Thank you once again!”
— Westbury Vets Manager, Matthew Sharples
From everyone at EDSB we would like to congratulate the team on having a successful tour and wearing their EDSB tops with pride.
