Prometheus Sponsors Local Football Club, Hereford FC

Prometheus is proud to announce that we will be sponsoring Hereford FC, our local football club, for the next 5 seasons.

Hereford FC is now in its second season following its promotion last season to the Southern Football League Division One South & West. Thanks to manager Pete Beadle and his fantastic squad of players, the club won three out of the four competitions it entered last season (the Midland Football League, the Midland Football League Cup and the Herefordshire Challenge Cup), and only fell at the final hurdle in the other, the FA Vase, after a memorable day-out at Wembley for over 20,000 Herefordians in May. In the club’s first season, crowds regularly exceeded 2,800, while on four different occasions more than 4,000 people packed in to Edgar Street to support their team.

Hereford FC was formed with the Hereford community at its very heart and we feel that sponsoring the team is a wonderful opportunity for us to be an integral part of that community. As a leading supplier of pre-hospital emergency medical equipment, Prometheus will sponsor its physiotherapist, Evans, and provide high quality medical equipment to the club.

Kevin Gallagher, COO of Prometheus, commented “Ever since the clubs creation we have been looking at ways to support and be a part of the club. We are always looking at ways to invest in the community and it is great that we can do it in a way that uses our expertise”.

Martin Brain Commercial Manager commented "We are delighted to have a partnership with Prometheus Medical and that they are Jonny Evans sponsor, having a local Herefordshire based company who supply a vast range of quality medical supplies is a perfect match"

A couple of Prometheus employees are avid Hereford FC fans so, from them and the rest of the company, we would like to wish the team the best of luck for this season!
