Norfolk County FA has agreed a partnership with Toilets+ which will see the portable toilet hire specialists become the Association’s official supporter of The FDC Equipment Bank.
Based in Wymondham, Toilets+ are the leading provider of portable toilet hire in the South, East and Central England, with 25 years’ experience and 5500 units; providing portable toilet solutions to more than 20 counties in England.
The quality of football pitches play a huge role in player participation and The FA Pitch Improvement Programme allows clubs to apply for advice and practical solutions in order to help improve their playing surfaces. The FDC Equipment Bank is a new additional service provided by Norfolk County FA that compliments and further advances this provision.
With the introduction of The FDC Equipment Bank, Norfolk FA are able to support clubs further by loaning state-of-the-art equipment to help with over-seeding, fertilizing and aeration. In addition, clubs also have to the opportunity to receive workforce support in the form of The FDC’s experienced Grounds Maintenance Officer, Chris Erskine.
The two-year partnership will see Toilets+ become the face of The FDC Equipment Bank, which is expected to support around 30 clubs this season. In addition, Toilets+ will be the official Player of the Match and Match Ball sponsors for the Norfolk Junior & Sunday Senior Cup Finals which will take place at Carrow Road this April.
As a not-for profit organisation, the partnership will enable Norfolk FA to not only support the upkeep of pitches around the county but invest further funding into developing the grassroots game as a whole.
Michael Banham, Chairman at Norfolk FA said: “Partnerships such as this are a key part of our strategy to ensure that as a County FA we can be self-sustainable and continue to increase the support we offer to the grassroots game season on season.”
“I’m delighted that such a well-known and successful organisation with Norfolk roots has come on board to help support the game in our great County. I look forward to seeing the new FDC Equipment Bank in action as well as the undoubted positive effect it will have on many of our clubs and their playing facilities.”
Shaun Turner, Joint Managing Director at Toilets+ said: “As a company we are delighted to be engaging in this new venture with Norfolk County FA and we are keen for this to hopefully be the start of a long term relationship supporting local grassroots football”
