Ryley Wealth Management will be the official Senior Kit Shirt Sponsor for Nottingham Forest Ladies in the clubs 25th anniversary season.
The Sponsorship covers two Official NFFC home kits for both the 1st Team and the Senior Reserves, with a shared away kit to complete the package. The real bonus for the Ladies club is that of support from Nottingham Forest Football Club who have authorised the official use of the Home Kit with design and approval of the Forest Ladies logo embroidered on the shirt.
The club in its current form was officially founded in 1990 by the NFFC Community arm and then developed by the players. The small group of young women advertised in the men's official programme against Everton for players to join them.
The Ladies club is an amateur organisation and not funded by the men's club, so independent sponsors have been acquired.
Forest Ladies Club Chairperson PJ Andrews explains: “It is always a difficult challenge to secure sponsorship and Steve Gray (NFLFC Club Operations Manager) has forged good relations with David to ensure we can move forward in our 25th Season.
The club cannot thank him enough as the effect of new kit is always appreciated and we haven’t been able to afford change for the last 30 months. We have been in developmental discussion with Nottingham Forest in the Community over the past months and their help to co-ordinate the delivery of the kit has been fully supportive.
Without doubt Forest Ladies can be proud of achieving its 25th milestone in line with the NFFC Community arm and it’s something we should continue to celebrate over the course of this season with all those who have contributed in so many ways over the course of the 25 years. The new Senior Kit is a great and impactful gift for our anniversary season, and the players and club are both thankful for it - and importantly very excited to wear it.”
Steve Gray, NFLFC Club Operations Manager says: “I would like to take this time to thank David Ryley and Ryley Wealth Management for sponsoring Nottingham Forest Ladies FC’s shirts for the 15-16 season. With it being a special time for Forest Ladies with the 25th Anniversary we wanted to make sure the teams were kitted out with the new kit to ensure everyone looked the part for such an historic season. Ryley Wealth Management have certainly made this possible.“
Phil Bloxham – Managing Director at Ryley Wealth Management responds “We are more than happy to help the local community and very proud to support the growing sport of Ladies Football. It is a pleasure to see the girls coming up through the ranks and enable them to play in a kit that they feel proud of.”
