Published on 11/10/2016

Buxted FCAt Neva, we’re proud to be a Sussex Business. Our team regularly join in with many events and charity fundraisers in our head office’s hometown of Uckfield, and now we’re pleased to announce that Neva Consultants are the proud sponsors of Buxted FC.

The team caters for many different abilities, boasting teams in various divisions including the Premier Division, Divisions Two and Nine, and the vets team, giving many talented locals the opportunity to regularly play football. The club are members of the Mid Sussex League, and have a long standing relationship with Neva, as Neva employee Adam Mogridge plays for the team as a goalkeeper.

At Buxted FC, the team, officials and club members play for their love of the beautiful game; with coaches offering expertise and sharing enjoyment regularly come rain or shine, something Neva has always admired about the club. Founded in 1918, the club was originally created as a way for young men returning from the war to find a way back to normality and stability once they returned to the sleepy countryside town.

Ever ambitious, the club would like to return to the Sussex County League, and hope that with the support of everyone at Neva, they aren’t too far from reaching their goal. It’s already been a bright start to the season just a few days in, with the first team scooping a win over Forest Road FC on 1st October, with many more wins expected to come during the season.

Nick Collinson, Director at Neva Consultants said of the move to sponsor the local side ‘At Neva we believe it’s important to be involved in the local community and to give something back.  We’re proud to be a Sussex business and operate our head office from Uckfield. Many of our staff are local and enjoy sports in their spare time, so sponsoring Buxted FC seemed like a perfect fit.’

He continued ‘ We like to support our staff in all their endeavours, so we were keen to sponsor the team Arron plays for when he’s not working hard for our customers at Neva. All the staff hopes to be able to catch a few games this season and watch the team in action, and we’ll be cheering them on all the way.’

The sentiment was echoed by Buxted FC manager Tim Burchett said ‘The team at Buxted are all really pleased Neva has chosen to sponsor us this season. It’s great to see a successful local business get behind the team, and the sponsorship is a welcome boost for all the players at the club. We’ll be doing our best to make everyone at Neva proud.’
