New partnership with Coyle Sports Community
Wednesday 28th of October 2020
North Ferriby Football Club are proud to announce a partnership with Coyle Sports Community for the naming rights of the club’s 4G arena at the Dransfield Stadium. The Northern Counties East League Division One side which boasts two senior teams, a ladies team and a host of junior teams see this as further progression to an already forward thinking club.
The deal was set up with former professional boxer Tommy, Hull City defender Lewie, golfer Joe and Rocco Coyle, along with business partner Paul Sewell, by Ferriby Vice-Chairman Glen Rimmington. Rimmington himself a former Ferriby player in the late 1980’s is happy the deal has come to fruition for both parties.
“I have known the Coyle’s for many years so for them to be involved and have them name our 4G facility the Coyle Sports and Community Arena is fantastic not only for the club but for them as well”, said Rimmington.
“I got talking to Tommy in the gym and it went from there and here at Ferriby we are a forward thinking Community Club which continues to grow. After we had the discussions it is great for us to announce them as the naming rights for our 4G arena at the stadium.
“Knowing Tommy and the lads I appreciate what great work they do with the many sides to their project and we are so glad to be a part of it. They do tremendous work with Siemens and work with underprivileged kids so their hearts are really in a fantastic community project.”
Lewie Coyle has returned to the city to play for Hull City after his transfer from Fleetwood Town in the summer and speaking at the launch said: “It’s nice for us to give something to not only grass roots sport but the community. It also made sense, especially for me, to come back to where it all started for me at the age of five or six.
“I used to be down here with Darren France learning my trade back in the day so I know how much it means to have a facility like this to give young kids a chance. It’s not just for the sport but to socialise as well and to gain all the skills you need to move forward in life.”
Explaining what Coyle Sports Community does Joe, the golfer in the family, added: “Coyle Sports Community has a footballer, boxer and golfer in the family so we just want to try and provide those kinds of opportunities to kids in and around Hull and East Yorkshire some of the chances we had as kids. We just want to give back and provide an opportunity for kids to get into a sport and more importantly gain some life skills like we all did while we were growing up through sport.”
