St Helens Town Football Club and social enterprise Fusion21 have teamed up to keep players hydrated across all five teams.

Fusion21 will be providing the club with a range of branded products including bottled water and sports bottles which can be used during training sessions and on match days.

Teams of under 17, 18 and 21, along with the first team and a Veteran’s outfit, will benefit from the donations as they start their respective league campaigns across the North West over the coming weeks.

Club Chairman John McKiernan said: "I am delighted with the support offered by Fusion21 and a lot of our work is about creating and developing partnerships with a broader benefit, which in a small way mirrors the work undertaken nationally by Fusion21.

"Business and community support continues to be the life-blood of club’s like ours and the Fusion21 partnership is another boost in advance of the new season."

Dave Neilson, Chief Executive of Fusion21, said: “By supporting the club we are continuing to help deliver social value which is core to what we do. We hope they have a very successful season.”
