Stelrad Radiators sponsors local youth football
Sponsors leading youth football team
Leading radiator manufacturer, Stelrad Radiators, is sponsoring a leading youth football team.
Rawmarsh St Joseph's under 18s team plays in the Sheffield and District DB Sports League A Division, the top junior league in South Yorkshire.
The club was founded back in 1970 and plays at the Stubbin football ground in Rawmarsh, Rotherham.
The land was formerly the Stubbin Colliery site owned by the National Coal Board.
Following the closure of the site, Rawmarsh St Josephs bought the site from the Wentworth estate.
The club is totally volunteer run and currently has twelve boys teams.
One of the volunteers at the club is Shaun Wilkinson, coach and manager for the past ten years.
His day job is working as Maintenance Facilitator and Environmental Co-ordinator at Stelrad Radiators, so it was natural he should suggest to his employers that they might be interested in supporting the team he managed this season: 'The club has the FA Charter Standard which is the core component of the FA Football Development Programme, this means we do things the right way in the interests of the club.
Myself and assistant Terry Millns rely very heavily on the support of parents and local businesses to enable us to provide the facilities and the opportunities for young people in the area,' says Shaun.
The club has made huge strides in recent years on and off the pitch.
Stelrad Radiators win two major awards for their new energy saving serial feed Radical Radiator. The awards were for Best Retrofit Product of the Year in the Greenbuild Awards 2013 plus the Best Domestic H&V Product of the Year at the H&V News Awards 2013.
Stelrad Radiators has become the only company in the industry to have gained three accreditations for its management systems.
72, 500 x 450mm Stelrad radiators are to be used by contestants in the HIP! National Plumbing Apprentice of the Year competition which takes place on 5 February 2013.
Radical believes it is offering the first genuinely energy efficient radiator on the marketplace, with a 10.5% gas saving compared to a standard heating system, a fact independently confirmed by KIWA.
Stelrad provided their radiators to support the BBC DIY SOS programme's biggest ever project at Liverpool Mutual Homes.
