A family-run catering equipment distributor in Daventry has raised its profile by sponsoring a local footballer who has just completed his first season playing professionally.
HWD Solutions, which supplies and installs commercial kitchen equipment, agreed to personally sponsor 18-year-old defender Ryan Haynes who is from the area and now plays for Coventry City.
He made his full-team debut last year and has now signed a three-and-a-half year contract with the First Division club.
Wayne Howard, director of HWD Solutions, told the Daventry Express that the company was happy to lend its support.
“It has been great to see Ryan develop himself into the first team this year and if he works hard then I’m sure he will be a great asset to the club and to the town of Daventry,” he said. “As a small, family-run business we are very proud to have been his sponsor this season and wish him all the very best for the rest of his career.”
HWD offers customers 25 years of front-line experience in the foodservice industry and has worked with companies such as Pret a Manger, Ikea, TGI’s, Lone Star, McDonald’s and Disneyland Paris.
