Falco was delighted to sponsor local Football club, Leek Town FC, for its home match on Saturday 13th April, as they took on promotion chasing Bootle FC in the Northern Premier League West match at Harrison Park.

The match kicked off on a warm spring Saturday afternoon and The Blues knew this would be a tough game as Bootle are fighting to finish in 2nd or 3rd spot in the league, which will guarantee them a home tie in the playoffs.

A crowd of 939 fans saw the Leek Town side open the scoring in the 59th minute, heading in from a set piece cross from the right, before Bootle equalised through a penalty in the 68th minute, resulting in a hard fought 1 – 1 draw.

It was after the final whistle the party could really get started as the Leek Town players and management staff made their way to the Directors box for the trophy presentation.

An historic moment for the market town, Leek Town FC will be playing Step 3 football next season after confirming promotion as champions of the Northern Premier League West Division.

After the match, Mark Wain, Marketing Manager, added; “the sun shone and Leek Town were promoted to the Premier Division of Northern Premier League for the first time since the 2007! It really is a great local club, plus the quality of the football was excellent, we were all impressed by the standard which the Leek team produced. All-in-all a fantastic day and a privilege to have the opportunity to be again involved in local sport. Hopefully Leek can push on to maintain a stable position in the next league”.

In addition to sponsoring Leek Town FC, Falco promotes Social Value and has actively supported many charity and local initiatives within the local community over the past few years. Recent examples include a £500 donation to local food bank - The Trussell Trust, sponsoring Keatesy's Community Boxing Academy, a local not-for-profit academy opened by professional boxer, Andy Keates, sponsoring Sparrow Park, a new charitable project aimed at developing young people with learning disabilities and mental health issues and sponsoring Leek Town U10 Girls Football Team shirts.
