Supergrip are pleased to confirm our sponsorship of Sunderland AFC footballer, Luke Molyneux.
Luke is a 20 year old winger from Newton Aycliffe who made his debut in the 3-0 home win over Wolves at tthe Stadium of Light at the end of last season.
Gordon Conlon, Director at Supergrip said “Darren and myself are delighted to take the opportunity in becoming the first business to sponsor Luke. Its great to be able to take the opportunity to sponsor a local lad and show our support as he makes his way as a professional footballer. Luke is the nephew of one of my best mates, Phil Molyneux. Myself and Phil first met at primary school when we were four years old, some 46 years ago. We are both mad keen Sunderland fans and have been through many highs and lows over the years following the lads – particularly the latter! We also played football from a young age together so it is great to see Luke living the dream, particularly at our club. As a company we try and support local people and good causes when and where we can. As part of the SAFC sponsorship package, we received a hospitality day at the Stadium of Light on Saturday 8 September, which was attended by members of both Phil’s and my family and was made all the nicer as it coincided with my dads 89 birthday. It was an excellent day and I would recommend the sponsorship package to other companies. We also received a visit at the office and a signed shirt from Luke which will take pride of place in our Supergrip boardroom. Everyone at Supergrip wish Luke well for the remainder of the season and we will be following his career with great interest.”
