What we do

We ultimately save grassroots sports clubs time and money.

 

With years of experience playing, coaching and refereeing within grassroots sports clubs, brothers James and Pete entered the world of professional sport working amongst some of the most elite sports clubs in the UK within Sponsorship, Community and Corporate roles. 

 

Fuelled with a passion for developing networks and giving back to grassroots clubs, Yours Sports Connections was born. The company strives to save clubs both time and money by developing relationships with some of the most reputable and recognised brands, saving clubs time and money whilst also securing a more streamlined and distinguished service.

 

By using our platform, club’s staff and volunteers will no longer have to search far and wide across the internet for the best deals on all areas of expenditure for their club’s and organisations. We will bring all of this information under one banner to make it simple, easy and informative for users.

Growing up in a sport-mad house, James dabbled at most sports before focussing on rugby in which he coached and refereed whilst he wasn’t playing himself. He went to Buckinghamshire New University to study Sports Management whilst coaching within the London Wasps Community team. He also began working for Harlequins during his time at University before heading to America to coach football within the mid-west region. He returned to the UK to begin a new role with Harlequins as Commercial Community Manager where he worked with community stakeholders as well as club partners such as Adidas, DHL, Etihad and Land Rover. James then moved onto Bath Rugby in a similar role before taking a new position at Southampton Football Club managing their tier 1 and 2 partners.
