Why Tove Valley FC
Tove Valley FC
Formed in 2018, Tove Valley FC is a Grasroots Football club with two Men's Teams competing in the Nene Sunday League in Northamptonshire, the Grassroots League of the Year winner in 2020. Provided a much needed Sunday adult club in the Towcester area, one of the largest towns without a Step 6 FA Facility club and growing in size with ongoing new housing developments, the Tove have grown from strength to strength each year, helping lead the way as a new club in Northamptonshire football.
In the 2020/21 season the clubs first team reached new landmarks, going the entire season unbeaten to become the Division 6 Champions and were also awarded the title of Team of the Year for 2020/21, a huge achievement to be crowned the best adults club with a Sunday League side competing in the entire county!
With a club philosophy focussing on constant improvement, we have built a strong football club in the local community with a link to a large Junior side and a committed foundation of volunteers a local support who help to make our club the best it can be, and reward our amazing sponsors!
Why Sponor Us?
The club have established a large social media presence (1500+ followers across all platforms) through dedicated regular posts to our fanbase and local supporters, coming up with innovative ideas to reward and help local businesses who have been able to support us. With the club having only been created thanks to intial investment from an amazing Kit Sponsor in our first year, we have always had such gratitude and truly know the importance of sponsorship, repaying and rewarding these businesses through the club one of our main priorities. We have an appointed FA qualified Social Media Officer leading a team who ensure regular graphics and content is produced highlighting dedicated sponsors for each player/matches. We ensure plans are put in place in agreement and discussion with all sponsors on how we can support your business online and in person, for example our partnership with local Bangladeshi restaurant The Ganges Towcester, who we ensure all club socials involve a pre event meal from or at their restaurant and ensuring our players and their family/friends have become regular users of them.
We currently partnered with several local businesses, being sponsored by The Ganges Towcester, Cre8 Towcester and OSS Media Limited, helping them promote their businesses across our match and training wear which is sported across Towcester to its 20,000 residents, and to all our social media platforms. Last season each individual player in the squad was also sponsored by a local business, a readily affordable way for sponsors to help our players fund their membership to the club, with their logos and business name also put on all our channels whenever their player of choice is involved in matchdays, and again for any and all notable action in the games. On the matchdays we regularly get support of 50+ supporters, along with the opposition team and footfall from the village to the park and footpath at the playing field. We also record our matchdays and run a highlights replay of the game featuring matchday sponsorships along with our attempts to play football.
Our aspirations for the future are to grow both our matchday support through increased local advertising and sporting success, and to grow our online fanbase through increased quality of regular content and coverage. This season we have entered our seconds team, a new chapter for the club which is allowing us to continue to offer footballing opportunities and a high level of coaching and development to any and all players interested in joining our club. Combined with our links to the Junior side we hope to be able to continue to grow and provide open football teams to all players who want to play in the local area, and not to have any hurdles in accessing a fun and competitive environment.
In our short history, we have had many highlights on the pitch, recently reaching milestones of going 12 months, and then the whole of 2020 unbeaten in our league campaigns, and being crowned the 2020/21 Division 6 Rivals, also being awarded Northamptonshire's Sunday League Team of the Year. We have also featured in an international friendly, with the squad traveling to the Algarve Region in Portgual to play Lemsford FC, and are scheduled to play higher tier Maltese teams in an international trip later this year!
