> New 2013 Goalball Eye Shades

Goalfix Sports Ltd is proud to announce the launch of two new versions of the already successful Goalball Eye Shade. The two new available options vary in the foam cushioning that is used, one uses sweat resistant and wipe clean foam that is securely attached to the protective visor and the second option uses ‘Memory Foam’ cushioning that is incredibly comfortable with the added advantage that when the foam is damaged or soiled it can be completely removed and a replacement piece of foam cushioning added in it’s place. These replacement pieces of ‘Memory Foam’ cushioning are sold separately in various quantities. You can purchase the new Eye Shades online at www.goalfixsports.com or through Alex Bunney at Goalball UK at the upcoming events on Saturday 13th July at the Munrow Sports Centre, University of Birmingham (from 10am to 4pm) and at the University of Worcester from September 4th to 9th for the European Mens C Championships.

Goalball Eye Shades MKII: £42.00 including VAT (per single pair)
The foam cushion is sweat resistant and can be wiped clean. The material is ZOUCHseal 90, which has been rigorously tested and approved in the USA for contact with the face.

Goalball Eye Shades ‘Memory Foam’: £38.40 including VAT (per single pair)
The foam cushion is ’Memory Foam’ for superior comfort and fit. These foam pieces can also be removed from the visor when damaged or soiled and replacement pieces attached which can be bought separately in various quantities.

> Goalfix Sports to Sponsor Sheffield & Hallamshire Under 13s Challenge Cup Competition

Sheffield & Hallamshire County Football Association is extremely pleased to announce
that Goalfix Sports Ltd. have agreed to sponsor next season’s Under 13s Challenge Cup
Competition.

John Warnock, Director of Goalfix Sports, said: “We are a Sheffield based company, that
manufacturer all our goals in Rotherham, so we are delighted that we can become partners
with the County FA and put something back in to local football.”

Goalfix Sports Ltd. Is the manufacturer and sole supplier of the patented “Oyster clip”.
A unique, safe net securing system for easy set up and removal, with proven durability and
net life extension, and most importantly, all goals are made to British standards.

Marketing and Communications Officer at Sheffield & Hallamshire CFA, Richard Finney
commented, “As you are probably aware, junior football clubs have the opportunity to
purchase new or replace existing goals through their local County FA’s and the Football
Foundation grant scheme. We hope this is just the start of a very positive relationship with a
local company that gives the best of service to their clients and are literally on the doorstep
to ensure customer service is at a premium. Goalfix can certainly provide clubs with safe,
quality goals to particularly meet the needs of junior football..”

Russell Warnock, Goalfix Sports Marketing and Sales Director added: “The Football
Foundation have recently announced that there are further windows for clubs and leagues
to access funding through the Football Foundation supporting the implementation of the
9v9 format into youth football . The first opportunity is next Monday 18 th March through
to 31st May. The next date to look out for will be 1st July. Our range of goals for all sports
are manufactured to high standards. Unlike a number of other companies we do not make
economy range goals and so we market confidently to clubs, schools and organisations that
seek to purchase quality products that last.”

So if you are looking to purchase new goals or replace existing ones then make direct
contact with Goalfix Sports and find out how they can help you and your club.
With the window of opportunity opening on Monday 18th March the timing couldn’t be
better.
