GWP Protective get behind Salisbury FC

The life of Salisbury FC’s hard-working kit man Mickey Western will now be much easier thanks to a generous donation of some top-notch kit storage and transport boxes by local protective packaging company GWP Protective.

The large metal Zarges cases are ideal for storing and transporting football strips and are becoming increasingly popular throughout the footballing pyramid from the premier league to the conference.

Richard Coombes is General Manager at GWP Protective.  Richard said: “We were absolutely delighted when our local team, and neighbours, Salisbury FC won promotion during their very first season back in the league.  We wanted to do whatever we could to help Manager Steve Claridge take the team to promotion again next season and we hope that our donation of these kit boxes will be of benefit.”

Steve Claridge added: “The new kit storage boxes are great, I know they will really help with transporting all our kit around.  We’re very grateful to GWP for donating them to us.”

GWP is an established market-leading designer and manufacturer of specialist protective packaging products for local, regional and international companies, and now employs over 100 staff across five divisions.
