UK Lift & Escalator Company Ltd are delighted to announce that we are this seasons shirt sponsors for Whickham Coachman Football Club. Our MD has been associated with the club for a long time and we’ve included some history of the club below:

  • Whickham Coachman FC was founded in 1968.
  • The club application to the Tyneside Sunday League was accepted that year and in the 1984/85 season the club started in 3rd Division.
  • Back to back championship wins ensured promotion to the 1st Division where they remained until this season.
  • In a highly competitive  league, championship success was achieved 2014/15 season.
  • They have won the Combination Cup in 1990/91, 1996/97, 2000/01, 2012/13 and 2014/15.
  • They have also won the Challenge Shield in 1992/93, 2009/10 and 2014/15.

Following the demise of the Tyneside Sunday League this season they started a new chapter in the clubs history by joining the Gateshead and District Sunday League. They have started the new season with 2 wins from both games, and we wish them all the best for the rest of the season!

Hopefully our sponsorship has given them the ‘lift’ they need and they can continue their success for years to come!IMG_1596
