Alfie Cox Ainsworth Civils are proud to be sponsoring Alfie Cox as he chases his dream of becoming National MotoX champion.
A talented all-round sportsman, Alfie first decided to try motocross two years ago. After riding at small local tracks on a pit bike, he purchased his first real MotoX bike in October 2014, spending the winter practising at Wildtracks in Chippenham.
He then joined Mid Sussex MX Club for the 2015 season, riding in the Big Wheel 85 class.
Going from strength to strength, Alfie finished his first ever season in 6th position, earning a place on the Mid Sussex team for the end of season ACU Team Event where the team finished 3rd overall.
Alfie had a great 2016 season which included his first ever race win and finishing 5th in the championships. He also took part in the MX Master Kids, which hosts the best riders in the country, finishing 27th overall.
Alfie has now set his sights on competing nationally again in the 2017 season, aiming to improve his position all the time.
Ainsworth Civils Sponsorship package for Sutton Valence Hockey Club
Ainsworth Civils have always been keen to support their local community and to develop sponsorship opportunities in Kent. As Julius Ainsworth, MD of Ainsworth Civils, is a keen hockey player and a member of Sutton Valence Hockey Club, a three-year sponsorship deal was arranged with SVHC to provide the finances for kit equipment and facilities.
Lewis Mitchell, chairman of SVHC said: "We are delighted to be associated with Ainsworth Civils who have shown such a great interest in our club and wish to support both our men's and ladies' sections going forward. Ainsworth Civils’ sponsorship will help our friendly village club to afford the kit, equipment and facilities we need in order to support our membership and to build for the future."
Sarah WrightAinsworth Civils’ Finance Assistant, Sarah Wright, is not only good with numbers but also an ace shot. Sarah won team gold at the Shooting World Championships in Granada Spain during September 2014 and a fourth place in the Olympic Skeet event in her Commonwealth Games debut at Carnoustie during July/August 2014.
More recently, Sarah has been selected to represent Team GB in World Cup events held in Cyprus, San Marino and Azerbaijan. As well as continuous Team GB selection, Sarah’s next main focus is to represent England at the 2018 Commonwealth Games taking place on The Gold Coast of Australia.
In order to qualify for the World Championships and to be selected for the Olympic teams requires many hours of training with total dedication and focus. Apart from her extensive training, Sarah enters competitions locally, nationally, and internationally in order to increase her chances for selection.
Sarah has joined Ainsworth Civils on a four day a week basis, allowing her time to practice and pursue her ambitions of representing the GB women’s skeet team at the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo, Japan. As Sarah’s sport is an amateur activity there is limited funding available. To help Sarah with her world class ambitions, Ainsworth Civils have developed a sponsorship package providing funding for her training, travel, and accommodation costs.
Sinead Ainsworth Finance Director of Ainsworth Civils said: ‘The appointment of Sarah as Finance Assistant has been a great asset to our team, her natural on target accuracy has already proved to be invaluable. We are pleased to be in a position to help Sarah with her World Championship and Olympic aspirations.’
