Official Supporter of the AFC Youth Academy
Amplus Energy Services Ltd has agreed a two-year deal with Aberdeen Football Club, launching a monthly player award programme to nurture talent in Aberdeen FC’s Bobby Clark Youth Academy.
The Youth Academy Player of the Month award scheme, which will recognise young players for their work ethic and performance in training and games, was officially introduced at Cormack Park last night with Alfie Bavidge (U16) and Rory Phillips (U11) presented with their awards for this month by Gavin Levey, AFC Youth Academy Director and Ian and Ali Herd from Amplus Energy Services Ltd.
Both players were nominated by their AFC Youth Academy coaches for their continued desire to improve and develop their talent with both setting good examples to their peers, pushing their development out-with training and games and focussing on their future ambitions.
The renewed agreement will also see Amplus Energy Services Ltd continue its sponsorship of Angus the Bull, making the Aberdeen based floating production services firm one of the longest running sponsors of the Club’s beloved mascot.
Amplus Energy Services Ltd Managing Director Ian Herd said: “We are proud supporters of Aberdeen Football Club and are thrilled to be strengthening our relationship, particularly as the Club continues to make positive improvements across the Youth Academy.
“This is an exciting time for the Club, and I’m pleased that as a local company we will get the opportunity to play a small part in its ambitious plans to be the best developer of young talent.”
AFC Commercial Director, Rob Wicks, is delighted to see another long-term commercial partner bolster its relationship with the AFC.
“Having been a key partner of the Club since 2014, Amplus Energy Services Ltd have reaped the many positive benefits of partnering a football Club and it is really encouraging to see the desire from them to not only increase their level of engagement but also broaden the partnership to see them supporting the young players emerging from our Youth Academy.
“In addition to highlighting talent and rewarding hard work, the partnership with Amplus Energy Services Ltd will also tie into their long-running association with the charity North East Sensory Services (NESS) which will see AFC support Amplus Energy Services Ltd with the provision of goods and services to support the annual NESS fundraising event.”
