Yorkshire security manufacturer, Heald Ltd, announces sponsorship with Hull City Ladies FC player Hope Knight for the 2022-23 season.

English football club, Hull City Ladies FC, was formed in 2001 and is an English women’s football club currently playing in the FA Women’s National League North. Heald will be the proud sponsor of the talented attacker, Hope Knight #24.

With a long history of supporting local charities and organisations, the hostile vehicle mitigation company, Heald, is passionate about supporting the underrepresented. This ethos is driven by Heald’s Managing Director, Debbie Heald, who received an MBE for her services to export and the promotion of STEM careers for women.

While manufacturing is generally a male-dominated sector, Heald continually pushes to break through this stereotype, as evidenced by the 50/50 gender split in the business. Aligning with Heald’s values, the team is passionate about empowering women to chase their ambitions, break conventional perceptions and inspire others.

Commenting on the recent sponsorship, Hull City Ladies Managing Director, Danny Johnson said: “We’re delighted that Heald Ltd, the leading innovators of perimeter security technology, is sponsoring player Hope Knight this season.

“Heald’s mission is to innovate and create high-quality, sustainable security solutions to contribute to a safer world. It’s fantastic to see Heald helping the Women’s game grow and supporting the Tigresses.

“Hull City Ladies provide opportunities for Women and Girls to develop, empower and achieve. We look forward to working collaboratively with Heald to inspire more people in our region.”

Heald Managing Director, Debbie Heald MBE, commented: “Following the recent success of England women’s football team at the European Championships, Women’s football teams across the UK have seen an immense amount of support. This is a very exciting time for female footballers and the wider community.

“I look forward to supporting Hope knight in the upcoming season and continuing to help inspire and support young women in their career paths!”
