Staffordshire FA are delighted to welcome on board Drayton Beaumont, who have become the Official Partners of the Staffordshire FA Senior Cup and Walsall Senior Cup for the 2021/22 season.
The Staffordshire-based group have a proud history of supporting local grassroots football, having supported various local clubs including Abbey Hulton United FC, who they continue to support. With Abbey Hulton United drawn against EFL Championship side Stoke City FC in the second round of the Staffordshire FA Senior Cup, this was an ideal opportunity to launch the partnership at the eagerly anticipated local derby – played at the Drayton Beaumont Stadium.
Based in Newcastle-under-Lyme, Drayton Beaumont provide fully accredited mechanical and electrical engineering services across the UK. Since its inception in 2002, Drayton Beaumont has developed and grown as a mechanical and electrical services company. Started, with a strategy to service the needs of the local pottery industry in Stoke-on-Trent, it grew quickly into a national company providing a range of related services to clients, main contractors, and private organisations in the construction industry.
Gareth Thomas, Commercial & Partnerships Lead at Staffordshire FA, said: “We are delighted to welcome on board Drayton Beaumont as Official Partners of the Staffordshire FA Senior Cup and Walsall Senior Cup. Drayton Beaumont have been loyal supporters of grassroots football in Staffordshire for several years now, and we thank Stephen and his team for their ongoing support to the local game. We look forward to developing the partnership and in doing so, continuing to develop key areas of the grassroots game across Staffordshire.”
Stephen Beaumont, Managing Director at Drayton Beaumont Services, added: “In line with our business values, is a strong belief in our people and our community, and our love of sport and football, is synonymous with those values. Drayton Beaumont is a family-owned business and the whole family have benefitted from football, both in being directly involved in football at a grassroot level, supporting our local teams, and some of the family playing for local and regional sides. Football has given us a lot and we are proud to be able to support Staffordshire FA as a way of “giving support back” to our community.”
The launch of the partnership took place at the Drayton Beaumont Stadium, as Abbey Hulton United and Stoke City entertained a crowd of over 600 people in the second round of the Staffordshire FA Senior Cup. The home side provided a stern challenge for their professional opponents, with the Championship side eventually running out 4-1 winners in an entertaining game played in front of an excellent crowd.
