Jake Hudson, regional sales manager at Evec, said:  "We are delighted to be partnering with Compton FC and supporting the club's efforts to build a strong, thriving community around football.

"As a company committed to sustainability and community engagement, we believe this partnership is a perfect fit for us. It’s also a sponsorship close to my own heart, as community football is a big thing in the Hudson household, with my mother being an official referee in Lincolnshire.

“As a young lad watching her do her thing, it was disgusting seeing some of the behaviour towards women in the game, and unfortunately, this is extremely common at all levels. This under 18 girls team sponsorship allows us to do something about it at the grassroots level and promote the game for all."

Compton FC aims to provide opportunities for people of all ages and backgrounds to get involved in football and develop their skills while fostering community and friendship. With teams including a first team, veterans, under 18 girls, under 12 boys, under 11 boys, under 11 girls and a walking football team.
