Stanair support AFC Rushden & Diamonds U16 Whites for 2018/19 season
Stanair are delighted to be supporting the AFC Rushden & Diamonds U16 Whites as shirt sponsor for the 2018/19 season.

The team, who have been supported by Stanair since August 2015, have already made a great start during pre-season games. The team played against an Adidas USA side winning 3-2, Wellingborough Town U16s winning 5-1, fought out a decent draw with Kempston Colts 2-2 and completed pre season with a 4-2 win against a very talented Wellingborough Town U15 side. They also took part in a recent Kempston Colts tournament and successfully made it through the whole tournament without conceding a single goal in normal time! Sadly losing out in the final on penalties.

This is the team’s second season in Division 1 of the Weetabix Youth Football League, following an impressive journey to the top over the past few years. Back in 2015, the team were competing in Division 3, but quickly worked their way up the divisions, achieving promotions two seasons in a row.

Team Manager Daniel Richards is looking forward to the season ahead.

“I am looking forward to this season probably more than I have ever looked forward to any season,” said Daniel, “we’ve had some good players come in and join our great group, giving us a tremendous team for the season ahead. We’re delighted Stanair are supporting us again this year, and look forward to sharing the team’s progress.”
