Yu to sponsor Stanley's youth team

Chinese restaurant chain to support Stanley's youth team as kit sponsors for the Under-14s

17 January 2020

Yu have signed up to support Accrington Stanley's youth team as kit sponsors for the Under-14s team.

Yu is an award-winning Chinese resturant chain that specialises in creating modern Chinese cuisine with a traditional twist, and they now have restaurants in Copster Green and Alderley Edge.

The award-winning Copster Green restaurant was opened in 2004 and it quickly earned a sterling reputation, with it winning the Best Chinese Restaurant in the United Kingdom award, as chosen by Gordon Ramsey.

General Manager of Yu, Craig Jackson said: "It is with great pride that we have the opportunity to work closely with the Under-14s team at Accrington Stanley.

"We hope that our partnership with the club grows over the coming years, and that in some small way we enable youth  team players to realise their dreams of becoming professional footballers.

"We also look forward to welcoming the players to our restaurants."

Stanley's Commercial Manager, Daniel Bowerbank added: "It is great to see another local business supporting the club, as a key objective for the club is to produce our own players and to create a pathway into the first team for them.

"All of our youth team sponsors go hand in hand with our aims, and it is great to see that Yu have chosen to support our Under-14s and will therefore help us achieve a viable pathway for the players into the first team."

Yu have also kindly added that Stanley season ticket holders can receive 10% off their order at either the Copster Green or Alderley Edge restaurants with Yu Express Takeaway.
