UK: Air conditioning contractor Coolair Equipment has teamed up with one of the region’s oldest hockey clubs.
The Manchester-based company has become the main sponsor of the Men’s first team at Timperley Hockey Club near Altrincham.
Founded in 1877, the amateur sports club prides itself on having the best facilities in the north west including a purpose-built clubhouse and two astro turf pitches that enable members from the age of five to over 50 to play hockey all year round.
Coolair is backing the Men’s First XI in its bid for promotion from the North Hockey Men’s Premier Division to the National League with the support of its coach and former Trinidad & Tobago international Albert Marcano and new goalkeeper and current Trinidad & Tobago star Kwasi Emmanuel.
The company, whose distinctive blue logo will be emblazoned on the front of team shirts and new pitch-side banners, has links with Timperley Hockey Club through one of its engineers Andy Wareham who is the First Team’s vice-captain. He joined the club six years ago after captaining Manchester Metropolitan University.
