Easington Sports secure storage sponsorship deal

Easington Sports are delighted to announce a new partnership agreement with Banbury based Fort Locks Self Storage of Lower Cherwell Street. The deal will mean that ESFC now have a fully refurbished container on site for storage of youth team equipment for its 22 teams. Sports suffered a real set back in the summer when the purchase of a container failed to materialise. The club paid for the ownership and delivery of a container similar to the one in the picture but after several weeks it became clear the club were victims of crime and a fake container and Haulage company. Chairman Richard Meadows contacted Director Nick Poole of Fort Locks for help and he was only too happy to support our community club.

Chairman Richard Meadows commented “Fort Locks Self Storage has been incredibly supportive right from the beginning after I initially made contact with the company. Fort Locks were not only able to supply a container from a reputable company on our behalf, but they were also able to make a number of enquires to track down the bogus company via their national contacts in the business of container storage. Sadly, we are unlikely to get our money back, however, thanks to the help of Fort Locks Self Storage we now have our container in place and in a perfect location for the storage of football equipment for youth team matches”.

Fort Locks’ help did not stop there for ESFC and once the container arrived on site, they prepared the inside of the container, ventilating and insulating it to prevent the build-up of condensation. The interior surfaces were painted to prevent rust and damage allowing Sports to move equipment straight into the container once finished.

Nick Poole said “We have been delighted to help one of Banbury’s most important youth sports clubs. Sourcing a good quality container and the preparation of a clean, dry storage space requires some technical know-how and we were keen to share our knowledge and resources with ESFC as a small contribution to the community; it has been a pleasure working with the club on this.”

Easington Sports would like to thank Fort Locks Storage for all their help and expertise over the last few months and hope this partnership agreement can stretch long into the future as the club continues to expand and grow.
