McBains has sponsored past work-experience student Laura Hennessy, a talented player at Oxford United Ladies Football Club, for the 2018/2019 season.
Aspiring footballer Laura has played at academy level since she was 10, originally at Reading Academy and more recently at QPR where she made her first team debut at the age of 18. After a spell in the USA, Laura returned to the UK and decided to mix her playing career with studying and at the age of 20 has recently embarked on a three-year quantity surveying degree at Oxford Brookes University.
During the summer and in preparation for her degree course, Laura joined our Maidenhead office for three weeks of work experience. Having been impressed by Laura’s enthusiasm and desire to learn, McBains was keen to support Laura in her future endeavours and agreed to sponsor Laura in her role as forward in the Oxford United LFC team.
Adrian Southgate, Director at McBains, commented: “Laura displayed a strong work ethic during her work experience with us and I’m sure this positive attitude will be echoed in her efforts on the pitch. We are delighted to be sponsoring an aspiring young player such as her and wish Laura and the rest of the Oxford United LFC team all the best for the coming season.”
Founded in 2005, Oxford United Women's Football Club is an English women's football club affiliated with Oxford United. Since their first season, the team has had many successes and currently play in the FA WPL Premier Division.
