The team won their first round qualifier against Borrowash Victoria Ladies at the Air2Root Stadium , securing a 4-3 win on their competition debut.

And because of a kit colour clash, Alport donned their away kit, sponsored by Halls’ Whitchurch office, for the important tie.

Halls have agreed to sponsor Whitchurch Alport Ladies, who have been promoted to the Staffordshire Girls and Ladies League this season, for the next three years and also have advertising signs at the stadium.

“We are delighted that Whitchurch Alport Women wore their away kit, which Halls sponsor, for their fantastic victory in the Women’s FA Cup tie and hope it continues to bring them luck at Solihull in the next round,” said Simon Dodds, Halls’ Whitchurch office manager.

“With the England Lionesses winning the Women’s European Cup and being Women’s World Cup finalists, I know how popular the sport is and Halls wanted to support women’s football at a grassroots level.”

Halls also supports Whitchurch Rugby Club with ground sponsorship. Mr Dodds said the company is keen to put something back into the community by supporting grass roots sports and, at the same time, further raise its profile in the region.
