Newham company London Network for Pest Solutions (LNPS) has announced a sponsorship deal with Wapping Youth Football Club. The arrangement includes sponsorship of the team’s shirts and the establishing of a special award sponsored by LNPS.

Wapping Youth FC was founded in 2013 by a group of young adults intent on creating a community team that encouraged the next generation of promising footballers.

Beginning with nine players, it now has more than 100 players on its books which has meant an expansion in the number of teams being fielded by the club. It is affiliated to the London FA and is a member of the London County Saturday Youth Football League, Echo Junior Football League and Tower Hamlets Youth League.

LNPS managing director Paul Cooper said: “Football has been a passion for me all my life. I love the highs, and even some of the lows. I especially love the sense of camaraderie that is created between supporters and their team. There is always a sense of community around football, which is why we are keen to become involved with Wapping Youth FC.

“As a company our mission is to serve the local community and I believe that means going beyond our remit as pest controllers. Sponsoring Wapping Youth FC means we are also supporting the next generation of East Londoners and, who knows, maybe even the next Lionel Messi.”
