Tapi Carpets & Floors sponsors Holland Football Club

Carpet retailer Tapi Carpets & Floors have been announced as the new sponsor for Holland Football Club.

The flooring company are sponsoring the club following the opening of their latest new store in the Trade & Leisure Park, Old Road, Clacton. The Tapi team are excited to build a relationship with the local community and are dedicated to supporting the young talent in the area.

Holland Football Club, also known as ‘The Jaffas’ because of their bright orange kit, was founded in 2006 by Chairman Mark Sorrell, then Vice Charmain and Secretary Vic Webb. They are based on Dulwich Road, Holland-on-Sea, and you can often see their teams training at Eastcliff or on the astroturf at Jaywick Coastal Academy.

The club are planning on going chartered standard this year and actively working towards this aim. They have a great vision where they would like to be in a few years and hope to progress in all departments whether it being Men’s, Youth and Girls football.

As part of the new sponsorship, Tapi Carpets & Floors will now feature pitch side and appear in match day programmes. They are currently the only flooring specialist sponsor.

Darren Soames, store manager at Tapi Clacton, commented on the partnership. “Holland FC are a great local club,” he said. “My son plays for the under 14’s yellow team so I know them really well, I’m often on the touchline on a Sunday morning cheering him on! We’re delighted to sponsor the club and I love to see Tapi’s name alongside the pitch – especially when they score! I’m so proud Tapi are sponsoring our local club and getting involved in the community around our store.”

Charlie Harris, Director of Buying at Tapi Carpets & Floors, added: “Darren recommended Holland FC to us, it’s a fantastic club which provides a fun friendly environment for families in the area. We’re keen to support the next generation of talent, plus, it’s a great place for Clacton to enjoy the football. We hope to get to know everyone in the community, and hope they’ll pop by the store to say hello!”
