New Sponsors confirmed for the 22/23 Bill Hughes Senior Shield and Marlborough Trophy

All About STEM and All About Futures support businesses and organisations to access or develop outreach and engagement activities, with the purpose of providing the inspiration and direction required to help young people identify future careers and life-opportunities.

We are delighted to welcome All About STEM to be headline sponsors of the Bill Hughes Senior Shield for 2022/23 and All About Futures to be headline sponsors of the Marlborough Trophy for 2022/23.

Managing Director, Michelle Dow, and Operations Manager, Alison Christoffer, have a personal connection with LOBAL. Alison is the daughter of the late Frank Ray, who played in the League for many years as an Old Bootleian, later turning his hand to refereeing. He was Treasurer of the League for many years and served as President until 2020.

From his earliest days playing in school and youth group teams, right through to his adult involvement with LOBAL, grassroots football was a huge part of Frank’s life. Sponsorship of the Centenary Year Cup Competitions, by All About STEM and All About Futures, seemed a fitting tribute to a father, a friend and a man who loved the competition, camaraderie and community provided by the League.

League Secretary, Greg McLean, noted "We are hugely grateful to Michelle and Alison, along with all the team at All About STEM and All About Futures for supporting LOBAL with our 2022/23 Cup Finals. With the personal connection too, it is fitting that they are joining forces with us in our Centenary Year. We look forward to working with them to promote the great work they are doing."
