Harrington United Football Club kicks off the 2020 Season with a new sponsor. 
 
Last weekend, Harrington United FC (The Hornets) started their long awaited 2020 soccer season and also kicked-off with a funding boost from new sponsor SHAWOOD. The sponsorship will provide equipment, uniforms, coaching staff and medical assistance for The Hornet’s junior teams (U6s to U11s).
 
Brent Thompson, Senior Development Manager at Sekisui House, comments, “Sport plays an integral role in our society and I know that the children can’t wait to get out on the field after a delayed start to the season.  Sport helps our younger generation grow as individuals, promotes teamwork and discipline, and contributes to a positive effect on mental health and emotional wellbeing within the broader community.
 
“The Hornets fulfil an important role in the Camden area by helping nurture and motivate young soccer players.  For this reason, SHAWOOD is pleased to be a major sponsor of The Hornets, assisting them with their competition needs for the 2020 season.”
 
Ray Zammit, Senior Vice President at The Hornets said, “Since inception in 2002, the club has accommodated thousands of soccer players and their families in the Camden region.  The Hornets is now one of the largest in the area with 950 female and male members. We work tirelessly to maintain a high standard for members in the local soccer league.  The sponsorship from SHAWOOD will play a big role in providing equipment and uniforms.
 
Camden Mayor Theresa Fedeli said, “Sport is part of Camden’s community fabric and teaches our youth comradery and life skills, not to mention the physical benefits of regular exercise.  The community’s sporting facilities are continually evolving and improving, and it is satisfying through my role on Council to be a part of that progress.”
 
“It is great to see the continual easing of the COVID 19 restrictions and the commencement of the highly anticipated 2020 soccer season.  The community, in particular the players, have really missed their regular soccer games and it is pleasing to see that this physical activity can finally commence,” Councillor Lara Symkowiak said.
