Eastleigh Football Club are delighted to announce that Banbury Builders have become sponsors of our Elite Development Squad and Scholarship Programme.

With the club’s youth programme continuing to thrive, the sponsorship becomes the first of its kind for the Elite Development Squad and Scholarship.

Paul Lucas of Banbury Builders, and Chairman of Bashley Football Club, commented on the partnership:

“We are delighted to become the first sponsors of Eastleigh’s Elite Development Squad and Scholarship Programme. As a big supporter of local football and the development of talented young players, it’s exciting to play a part in helping to continue that at Eastleigh.

“In my role at Bashley, we’ve had a good connection with Eastleigh over recent seasons and I feel that this sponsorship is a great way to give back to the club and maintain our link together.”

Head of Youth Development, Jason Bristow, added:

“It’s fantastic for us to have Paul and Banbury Builders on board with our EDS and Scholarship programme.

“We’re proud of the growth that the set up has had at the club year on year. With our track record of youth players coming through to the first team now proven, having Banbury Builders involved as lead sponsors will only help us to continue to develop the programme.”
