We Establish a New Partnership With SYR

Somerset FA link up with international brand SYR to help grassroots clubs effectively maintain changing room hygiene and bring football back safely.

We're delighted to partner with SYR, the globally respected cleaning equipment brand. 

Our partnership will help grassroots clubs to bring back football activity safely, in line with Government and FA guidance. Changing rooms present an area of increased COVID 19 transmission risk, and must therefore be cleaned effectively once they are permitted to be used from April 12. 

We have worked closely with SYR and Alliance to assemble and distribute discounted cleaning equipment and 'bundles' to save clubs time and money. Additionally, as part of the partnership our clubs can access how-to instructional videos and posters detailing changing room protocols. 

SYR’s unrivalled reputation for quality has established us as a trusted manufacturer of cleaning systems across a wide range of sectors since 1954. We are trusted by both small businesses and big brands across the globe. 

Sean Buttle, from SYR and Wellington AFC worked closely with us and commented: "Since the beginning, our unique cleaning systems have been carefully designed and built to last, above all an ethos that is still very present in everything we manufacture today. Our wide range of products ensure you always have the right tool for the job, no matter what the task. We look forward to working closely with the FA to ensure the safe return of grassroots football."

Conor Ogilvie-Davidson, Marketing and Commercial Partnerships Officer at Somerset FA added: "I've enjoyed working with the SYR team and our CEO, Jon Pike to bring this partnership to our affiliated clubs. It's a fantastic step to help clubs bring football back safely, ensuring that whilst changing rooms are in use from April 12, they do not pose a risk of virus transmission. Additionally the SYR team have produced how-to videos which help volunteers use the products correctly."
