“Both sponsors have been invaluable in supporting our journey to where we are today as a league.”

We also sponsor East Park who play within the league structure.”
The Beacon League also welcomes on board new sponsors, Advanced Recruit of Wolverhampton, who have agreed to support the increasing popular over 30s section. Company director Chris Williams also manages league members AFC Dormston over 30s.
