Dex’s Midnight Runners are delighted to sponsor Shrewsbury Town Ladies Football Club for the upcoming 2017/18 season. The ladies have enjoyed a successful few years since reforming in 2011. They won the Staffordshire League Cup and gained a promotion to the West Midlands Regional League in 2014. They have also been Shropshire FA Women’s Cup runners up in 2015/2016 and 2016/2017.
DMR has had an interest in Shrewsbury Town Football Club for a number of years having sponsored and delivered the away tickets for the first team. DMR’s Director, Derek Bennion, has a personal interest in Ladies football too since his Grandmother played for one of the top teams in the early 1920’s when women’s football first became prevalent.
The Ladies Team link with ‘Shrewsbury Town in the Community’ has demonstrated a tremendous effort being made to support the development of ladies’ football across Shropshire. The team are great ambassadors to the sport and this is another worthy reason why DMR have supported the team.
Derek Bennion, Director and owner of DMR said: “We are an immensely proud to be a Shropshire based company and the opportunity to support the STFC Ladies team. Seeing as we have a number of female couriers, the link to sponsoring the ladies team was obvious.”
“Having watched a few games, we realised the team always play positively and loves to win which they do with style and quality too. This strikes a chord at DMR since we have a similar philosophy in business. The icing on the cake for us was the ladies’ team’s link with Shrewsbury Town in the Community. They are making a tremendous effort to support the development of women’s and girls’ football throughout Shropshire. This, coupled with our football interest and being a Shropshire business, ensures that we can help to support their great work.”
