Welsh League Driving Onwards With New Sponsors

Nathaniel Cars were today announced as the new sponsors of the Welsh Football League in a three-year deal.

The Bridgend based car dealership is also the current sponsors of the Welsh League Cup but have added to that by replacing MacWhirter as the league’s main sponsor.

The linkup between both parties will be full of incentives to members of the league.

This includes the club throughout all divisions with the best disciplinary record at the end of the season, as judged by the FAW Fair Play awards, being awarded a 16-seater Minibus for a whole season.

It will be taxed and insured as well as having the club’s name printed on the side of the vehicle.

There will be Manager of the Month awards handed out throughout the leagues as well as a Manager of the Year award given at the end of the season.

The recipient of the Manager of the Year award will get a prize of any Mitsubishi car from Nathaniel, taxed and insured, for a fortnight during the close season.

Every player and committee member registered to the league will also be given a free MOT.

And finally, every car purchased by members will receive six months free road tax, one full tank of petrol and their next service will be free of charge.

Wayne Griffiths, Managing Director of Nathaniel Cars was delighted with the ‘unique’ partnership.

“With the economic climate the way it is today, I think it is a great benefit in helping clubs survive,” said Mr Griffiths.

“It is unique for Welsh Football and gives an incentive to each club in each league that they can reap the benefits at the end of the season.

“For example, the club showing the best conduct by having the best disciplinary record will earn the Minibus.

“This could help a club from the kid’s teams to the senior sides and will give all involved a tremendous boost.

“We have a great enthusiasm for this partnership and hope it benefits Welsh League football.”

League Secretary Ken Tucker was also optimistic.

“We have agreed a three-year deal with the option of a further three years,” said Mr Tucker. 

“We hope it has more of a positive impact locally within the league which will lead to potentially greater things for all involved in the future.”

The Nathaniel Cars Welsh Football League, as it will now be known, continues tonight with Division One’s Taffs Well hosting West End at the Rhiw Dda’r stadium and Division Three’s Cardiff Grange Quins hosting Tredegar Town tomorrow evening.
