Women's Sponsor Spotlight: CMB Engineering

Women's Sponsor Spotlight | CMB Engineering

CMB Engineering have continued their support of Cardiff City FC’s women’s programme this season as our U19 team’s shirt sponsor.

With 30 years’ experience and counting, CMB Engineering has developed into Wales’ largest independently owned building services company, working on many prestigious projects across Cardiff, Wales and the United Kingdom.

CMB has a can-do approach to engineering services in the field of Mechanical and Electrical services, Project Management, Maintenance, Semiconductor Technologies, Cleanrooms, Renewables and Sports Facilities.

Cardiff City FC Women’s U19 side have seen great success since their formation, achieving the feat of being named national champions in the last two seasons.

Commenting on the support of our team sponsors, U19 head coach Noah Bushby said:Firstly, the CMB Engineering logo looks great on the kit. All sponsors are just hugely important for the running of the Club. CMB are a great sponsor for us, they’re really supportive and they are exactly what we need as a Club.

"To grow the women’s game in Wales, sponsors play a huge part. They go hand-in-hand with the growth of the game, because as the profiles of clubs in Wales get bigger and are exposed to larger audiences, the benefits for the sponsors also grow because their brands are shared to more and more people. It’s a great thing to be a part of and a great time to be supporting women’s football and CMB Engineering certainly do that.”

Not only have the U19 side had success in the form of silverware, but also in developing talented young players. Wing-back Mikayla Cook, along with striker Eliza Collie, have both impressed since making the step to the senior side, having previously represented the U19s. This season has seen further opportunities for the U19 squad at senior level, with Summer Bowen-Quirk, Brooke Arthur, Mali Ackerman, Demi Parry, Grace Phillips, Olivia Basham and Madison Lloyd all featuring for Iain Darbyshire’s senior team.

Noah continued: “The success of the women’s programme over the last few years and how many trophies we’ve won at different levels has been amazing, but that wouldn’t be as possible if it wasn’t for the support we have from our sponsors. The U16s team was initially set up with the support of sponsors and that was a hugely important step and the U19s have continued their success with the sponsors’ backing.

“We are able to continue to set the standards by offering the facilities for our young talents to improve and develop players to be ready to step into the senior team. We’ve seen a lot of players take that step this season and have really impressed when they go and play for the senior team. That’s a massive positive for us as a Club because it shows that we’re doing the right things in developing our young players and they are confident to show their abilities in the topflight of the women’s game in Wales.

"We’re massively grateful for the support. I know Steve Borley is a longstanding director and patron of the Club but he is also a huge fan of our women’s programme. He has always supported us and it’s great to have that relationship. To have his backing and support, it gives us the platform to continue the positive steps that we’re taking in the Women’s and Girls’ programme.”
