KHT Pledges Support for Junior Footballers

Posted On: 18 Nov 2020

Knox House Trust Limited (KHT) is delighted to have sponsored football kit for one of Corinthians Football Club’s junior teams.  The club currently has four under 12 teams playing in the Isle of Man Junior League, and the kit sponsorship is specifically for their Athletics team.

The firm previously supported the club in 2019, sponsoring kit for two of the club’s Under 10 teams when they travelled off island to compete in the UK International Cup Tournament, which took place at St. George’s Park (training base for the England national football team).

Speaking about the sponsorship, KHT’s Anthony Page, who heads up their Family Office division said; “As a business we are always keen to support our local community, and in particular local sporting teams.  Having got involved with the club at a personal level, it has been a joy to see the focus and encouragement that the club provides to its junior members, with children as young as age 3 upwards taking part in weekly training sessions led by FA qualified coaches and participating in regular competitive games.”

Mr Page continued: “We are extremely fortunate here on the Island that our young players can continue to reap the full benefits of training and competing at a local level in comparison with the lockdown situation in the UK.”

Commenting on the sponsorship Corinthians Club Secretary, Stephen Corran said: “On behalf of Corinthians AFC and the Under 12 Athletics Team, I would like to thank Anthony and all the team at Knox House Trust for their kind and generous support of our new team kit.  It is support like yours that keeps grassroots football flourishing.”
