Heald Ltd extends sponsorship deal with Hull City Ladies FC footballer Hope Knight

We’re delighted to announce that we are renewing our sponsorship of Hull City Ladies FC player Hope Knight for the 23-24 season. 

The English women’s football club was formed in 2001 and currently plays in the FA Women’s National League North. 

Hull City Ladies’ values align with ours, as we’re passionate about supporting local communities and organisations that empower women to chase their ambitions. This ethos is driven by our Managing Director, Debbie Heald, who received an MBE for her services to export and the promotion of STEM careers for women. 

Top goal scorer and attacker Hope Knight, proudly sponsored by the Heald team, contributed to a positive 2023 season for the Tigresses. Hull City Ladies finished 5th place and scored 46 goals, which was the 3rd highest in the league. 

Hope Knight had a fantastic season for Chris Hames’ side, in which the number 24 was the FA Women’s National League top scorer with 23 goals beating Bianca Owens and Georgia Gibson, who finished the season both on 19 goals. Hope also secured two hat tricks, including four goals against Bradford and four goals against Middlesbrough.

Danny Johnson, Hull City Ladies FC Managing Director, said: “Our goal is to provide Hull and the East Riding with a genuine and viable female pathway that allows us to inspire, train and retain the best talents from across the region within the women’s game. We want to establish Hull City Ladies as a Tier 2 (championship) club and create a real belief in a career in football in the East Riding.” 

Danny continues: “It’s brilliant that Heald Ltd have continued their sponsorship of Hope Knight. We’re creating opportunities for females in our region to develop, empower and achieve, and with Heald’s continued support, we’re able to do this. 

“We’re also proud to see a great business, who are the leading innovators of perimeter security technology and have a long history of supporting local charities and organisations supporting the Tigresses, once again.

“It’s important to have local businesses support Hull City Ladies, as they’re inviting partners to join them on an exciting journey, be part of generating a vibrant community, and this is an opportunity for everyone to leave a lasting legacy for women and girls in our region.”

We’re really excited to extend our sponsorship of the talented Hope Knight after a great 22-23 season. The Heald team have attended numerous Tigress games, and we’re proud to be a part of such a driven, ambitious, and supportive team that is an integral part of the community. We look forward to supporting Hope Knight in the upcoming season!”
