Severn Sport to sponsor Hellenic Premier defender for 2018/19 season

Severn Sport are delighted to confirm that we have once again agreed to sponsor a local player for the coming season, this time sponsoring a player in the Hellenic League Premier Division.

In previous seasons we have signed up to sponsor the likes of Keiran Thomas & Jas Singh of Gloucester City in the last couple of seasons as well as sponsoring then Gloucester defender Chris Holland when we were known as City’s Tigers Radio.

For the 2018/19 season we have selected Tuffley Rovers defender Sam Hill to sponsor after his performances last season for Rovers.

Right back Hill made the Severn Sport team of the month on a number of occasions throughout the season for his displays at the back and going forward for Tuffley.

Hill scored the winner for Tuffley in their away FA Cup tie at Leighton Town last season before chipping in with three league goals as he helped Rovers finish 10th in the Hellenic Premier.

Hill also helped out with the coaching of the Tuffley Rovers u18s, providing and passing on experience and knowledge to the new generation of Rovers talent.

Severn Sport’s Ryan Butler has welcomed the news that the sponsorship has been confirmed.

“Throughout last season we developed relationships with players and management at different clubs and Sam was one of the first to get behind Severn Sport and what we are trying to achieve within local football. His desire and determination to win and play the best brand of football he can was on show from the first Tuffley game I covered last year, when Sam scored and assisted in Tuffley’s 3-3 draw at home to Cirencester Town in pre-season.”

“Sam has always welcomed Severn Sport and has thanked us for our efforts, so this is a way for us to show our gratitude.”

Hill’s Tuffley Rovers side start their pre-season on Monday evening when they travel to Hereford Lads Club before they compete against Longlevens in the Severn Sport Shield on Wednesday 11th July, at Slimbridge’s Thornhill Park.

Tuffley then begin their Hellenic Premier campaign on Saturday 4th August, ahead of which they have announced a new season ticket offer for fans – which you can read more about here.
