Stroma Certification is pleased to be sponsoring local Castleford football club, Fryston AFC, for the 2014/15 season.
Fryston AFC was first formed over 100 years ago and currently play in the West Yorkshire League Division Two.
Stroma’s Warehouse Manager, Tony Burrow, now serves as President and Honourary Life Member of Fryston AFC and we are happy to be lending support to a local team with a rich history and tradition.
Fryston has links to the Bevin Boys, conscripted coal miners during the 1940s. One of their most notable former players, Dave Penney, went on to play professionally for a host of league sides before managing teams including Doncaster Rovers, Darlington and Oldham Athletic.
A film documenting the club’s history, Coals, Goals and Ashes, is currently in development having been financed through the Heritage Lottery Fund.
Tony said: “I would like to thank Stroma for their kind support in sponsoring the team and hope that we can repay the investment with some good performances on the pitch.”
